Toppling Goliath Dorothy's New World Lager
Toppling Goliath Brewing Company Dorothy's New World Lager. "Live Beer, Please Keep Refrigerated." Hand Crafted in Decorah, Iowa. 5.5% alc. by Vol.
Clouded, golden hued, with a bit of snow white head, that starts as something, but ends small and slight.
Aroma: Clean and malty, slightly sweet, certain cereal notes.
Taste: More clean, and plenty crisp. Snappy. Light bodied, lightly malty. A neat little blessing of hops. Just enough. And plenty of yeast to keep my tongue tantalized. I may have said it before, but I'll say it again: I'll always like an unfiltered lager more than a filtered one. Kellerbier, zwickel, whatever you want to call them, they give the flavor filtered lagers don't. Tasty stuff. Good beer, and you can drink it. Nice one, Dorothy.
Hey, wait's the label say? "Named after our founder's grandmother, Dorothy's is our "classic beauty." She is easy going, mild in body and clean in taste. Each sip charms the senses with distinct flavor and refreshing simplicity. Just like Grandma Dorothy, our unfiltered flagship lager is forever dear to our hearts."
Aw…so sweet. Grandma Dorothy would surely be proud.
