"The invention of refrigeration allowed lagers to be shipped long distances. Dortmund, in Westphalia, was the first German city to develop the "Dortmund" or "Export" style of brewing. This beer was first brewed to commemorate one century of brewing in Aying Bavaria, in 1978. Golden, big herbaceous bouquet with a soft, medium body and a long lingering finish with dry hop tones. This light lager is a better complement to food than the higher hopped and more bitter pilsner style."
