2 Halfs Keller Dortmunder

2 Halfs Brewing Distilling

2 Halfs always have an unfiltered lager in their Keller series on rotation, but the Dortmunder is a bigger brother to the ones that came before it.

Expect something bigger than other pale lagers – at 5.3 percent ABV, this German export lager is objectively powerful, but the Dortmunder also punches above its weight. A durable head sitting atop its staunch body gives a fullness in the mouth that you can’t help but respect.

That doesn’t mean it’s confronting, though; a lovely clarity shows off how clean it is, a bready sweetness keeps the noble hop character in check, and the bitterness builds slowly without ever overwhelming the other flavours. So while it unashamedly has a bit of heft, this big lager’s a big softie.
