Pours a bright pale yellow missing a good head.
The smell is all the biscuity malt aroma, with a citrus hint.
I love this style for its easy drinking taste and this one is no exception. Again the malty flavor dominates with a slight hop bitterness in the finish.
Light and carbonated.
Not a Jahr Hundert but a good beer.

12 fl oz. can, with the bottom saying to "swirl" before 07/30/2013. A beer from Two Brothers that I haven't heard of before, and it's a pleasure to see them packaging another new beer in a can. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours three giant fingers of fluffy white head on top of a sparkling clean yellow tinted body. Lots of bubbles streaming to the top. Definitely looks like a lager, all right. Fluffy ring of lacing at the top of the glass.

S - Some faint grain characteristics, and a tart citric smell also akin to lemon, with some piney hops shining through also.

T - Crisp, smooth, refreshing. Bit of some lemon citrus and some faintly bitter piney hop presence rounds things out very nicely here. Some grainy presence makes itself known, as well. Nothing super spectacular, but in the realm of lagers, this is a nice refresher, especially on a hot summer day.

M - Feel is crisp and clean. Light-bodied, and bright. Light hop bitterness & stickiness lingers around.

Overall, a nice effort from Two Brothers. Dortmunders aren't exactly the easiest style to pull off, but they did it effectively well here. Light, smooth, & refreshing. And with a modest 5.10% abv, this is some easy drinking. Recommended.

Two Brothers Dog Days Dortmunder Style Lager ---4/5.
