In this blog, we are going to get into one of the seasonal from the Shiner Brewery, It is their spring seasonal called Dortmunder. If you read my earlier blog, you are pretty up to speed with this brewery. Let us get into the brewery.
Shiner Dortmunder has a copper color without a head on the beer. There is a slight malty smell to the beer. It has a sweet, carbonation, and carmel taste with a dry crisp finish to it. It is a drinkable spring beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Spring has a sprung at the little brewery in Shiner, TX (pop. 2,070). And with it, our newest brew, Shiner Dortmunder-Style Spring Ale. This Old World classic pours deep gold in color, with a white head and smooth flavor. Its medium hop bitterness, and hints of grain honey and floral hops will refresh you like a sun-drenched nap on a lush green lawn. Prosit!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, Shiner Dortmunder is not one of my favorite seasonals or beers from Shiner Brewery. It is not a bad beer for being a meduim body beer. It is a perfect beer for the spring time. This beer is good to drink all day while doing lawn work or watching a baseball game from start to finish. If you love German style beers, you will love Shiner Brewery’s beers. They are German base asides Shiner Wild Hare, which is newest beer to their everday lineup and I have blogged about it in the past. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
