Our flagship beer was named after our founder’s grandmother and crafted to please her purely classic tastes. Mildly hopped, light in color and body, and clean to the taste, this california common-style lager drinks easy. Each sip charms the senses with distinct flavor and refreshing simplicity, delivering a smooth finish. Dorothy is truly the “Classic Beauty.”

Pours a chill hazed gold producing one and a half fingers of short-lived white head which leaves little behind as it recedes in the way of lace or surface cap. Pale for what is normal in this style. Aroma is cereal and sweet pale malt with a lemon hint. Taste is lemon, cereal and sweet malt in a slightly herbal background without the fruitiness I sometimes expect from this style. Finishes light but peppery with a nice hop profile. Mouth feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation; lively pepper on the tongue but still smooth. Overall this is to my pallet a divergent but nice addition to the style. Easy to drink it is good but not great.

Very light body and flavor. Large bubbles give it a feel similar to a sparkling water or prosecco. Lightly herbacious on the nose and very crisp. Overall a solid lager.

This is a light and refreshing beer. It has a nice crisp taste. I had it on a chilly fall day, which isn’t a perfect pairing, but I think this would be really nice on a hot summer day with some fish off the grill.
