An exceptional offering from the Great Lakes Brewing Co. in Cleveland. One of my favorite road drinks and is one of the first items I'll scope out when I visit Cleveland. Like the Vienna Amber (Eliot Ness) from Great Lakes Brewing, the Dortmunder Gold is an excellent draught specialty, which sadly I've yet to find west of the Rockies.
The Great Lakes Dortmunder is my personal favorite in this style of brew and is one of the easiest drinking (bitter) beers around. I've found it to be extremely enjoyable on its own, with appetizers, and even with a meal, particularly fish dishes such as halibut or grilled prawns.
If you're looking for a nice medium bodied brew, don't hesitate to tackle this one, particularly if you're looking for something with a little more bang than a simple pilsner.

Ah, Dortmunder export, one of the vague styles. This one pours out a reddish-orange colored beer with a nice large head. The heavy malt aroma doesn't really go with the style, but it does smell nice. Flavor has a strong malt presence with only slight hop bitterness. Malt is a touch grainy, though not too much. Good body and mouthfeel, which is appropriate for a strong export.
