12 oz. bottle poured into a fluted pilsner glass. A gold medal on the GLBC is a reference as hey beer guys.. This is our flagship beer.
A - Is good in color. A very bright golden color. Near perfect clarity. Nothing unique here, just a good colored brew. Head was a bit surprising as I wasnt quite expecting it to last as long as it did. Snow white head with a good amount of lace. There was white there til the end. Decent stick that stays close to the head more than hanging to the walls of the glass.
S - A great smell. I could really smell the hops it provides. But it was somewhat of a mild smell. Nothing overpowering about the sniff. A sweet smell. A smell that instantly cooled me off on this 90
degree day. Malty.
T - Sweet and extremely malty. Bread like malt character. German hop flavor is splendid. I like the taste of citrus notes on humid days. It was great for the summer evening. There is something about the water GLBC use. It's almost one of kind. A little bit of bitterness thag creeps in.
M - Medium bodied and it was very easy to drink. I found the glass gone before I knew it. Smooth in the mouth, but also crisp and clean like. Very good finish.
O - Nothing but great from GLBC. Check out the gold medals on their site. It basically speaks for itself. Putting a gold medal as the main label of a brew is a bold statement. But Dortmunder Gold has earned it's gold. It's proven and delicious. One of the best all around lagers in the world. Gold is not just a way of describing the color of this brew, but a way of describing its character and class. Nothing overly brilliant. Just a damn good tasting beer anyone can enjoy. It's a blue collar lager that still has a place in the world of beer. Must try
