Light minutely hazy gold color. Bright, buttery, grassy aromas of macaroon, asparagus frittata, and pretzels with a bright, bubbly, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, brisk honey buttered corn muffin, mustard greens, and jicama finish. A nice, creamy lager.

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.
