06 - Dortmunder Actien-Brauerei: Original Lager ********

DAB's Original Lager is another German treasure. It is not only running an efficient rail system that the Germans excel at, they truly are masters of the art of brewing. Who knew?
This is a beer that keeps giving. The flavour needs no more than the barley, malt, and hops to create an exquisite flavour. There are no overpowering tones as we find in English beers, but it is not a weak or watery beer by any means. DAB's Original is a beer that improves with the tasting.
I would drink this beer with cheese, and German sausage... and sauerkraut. The 660ml bottle is a sheer pleasure because the extra half a glass counters the inevitable disappointment one feels when the first glass is empty. This is a delightful beer and I will be drinking this again, and again, and again..... but responsibly.
