Hazy gold color. Attractive aromas of fresh baked southern biscuit and lemon tea with a velvety, soft, dryish light body and a polished, interesting, medium-long graham and soft pretzel finish. An interesting Dortmunder with Hefe-like haze and mild, gulpable style.

Dortmunder

Beer Glass Pilsner Amber.jpg
Serve in a Pilsner Glass
Dortmunders are straw to pale gold in color and range in alcohol from 5-6%. These beers are well-balanced, smooth and refreshing, and tend to be stronger and fuller than other pale lagers or Munich Helles styles. They may also be a shade darker and a touch hoppier. The style originated from the city of Dortmund in northern Germany. The "export" appendage refers to the fact that dortmunder beers were exported to surrounding regions. Today the term “dortmunder” widely refers to stronger lagers brewed for export, though not necessarily from Dortmund. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Great Lakes dortmunder Gold, DAB Original, Three Floyds Jinx Proof and Berghoff DortWunder Lager.
