look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
A - Pours an amber-gold with one finger of rocky, off-white head.
S - pale malt, cereal, a bit of breadiness, floral and somewhat fruity hop aroma.
T - Very balanced, with an initial sweetness from the malt countered by noble hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Flavors of cereal grain and a bit of citrus zest. Neither unobtrusive nor overbearing.
M - Pretty full for one of the lighter lager styles. Very smooth, with understated carbonation.
D - Dangerously drinkable at 5.8%. While I might instead choose a pilsner as my go-to lager in the warmer months, Dortmunder Gold could easily fit the bill the rest of the year.

4.05/5 rDev -0.7%

A: As the name suggests, it pours a bright gold hue with a small amount of carbonation. Thin head that doesn't much lacing if at all on the glass.
S: A little to be desired. A faint bready-grain wiff. Maybe some cereal. It's a pilsner, can't expect too much.
T: Extremely well balanced. The cereal is more assertive at first and then comes the sweetness from the malts. In the end, one can get a slight taste of booze, but it pairs well with the cereal.
M: Full-medium bodied. A little creamy from the carbonation. Leaves behind a small film in the mouth.
O: A simple but awesome pilsner by an always reliable brewery. There's nothing super extravagant about this beer, but it's pegged down the basics and it's done it well. Personally, I could drink this all day it's so smooth and good. If you're wanting to get into the pilsner style, start here.
