European-Style Export Beer

European-Style Export Beers are a type of lager that was first brewed in the city of Dortmund, Germany. Also known as Dortmunder export, this beer style is characterized by its golden colour, full body, and malty sweetness. It is generally more balanced than other lager styles, with a moderate level of hopping that creates a slight bitterness.

European-style export beers are typically served in 12-ounce bottles or cans, and they have an alcohol content of 5 to 6 percent. When choosing a European-style export beer, look for brands that are produced by German breweries. These breweries have centuries of experience perfecting this beer style, and they will be able to provide you with a product that is true to the traditional techniques used in Dortmund.
