This is one of my favorite "go-to" lagers.
This had a brilliant gold color with a white foamy head.
The aroma reminded me of a cross between butterscotch and hops.
The taste was very well balanced. The maltiness came at me first. It reminded me of butterscotch. After that came the hops. There is a nice lively hop flavor that works well the malt.
It has a great drinkability. It's almost too easy to down a sixer or a couple of pints.
Overall: this beer is great for any occasion. It is light and crisp but is still packed with flavor. As far as lagers go, this is one of my favorites.

Maybe the best of the Great Lakes offerings. I had the the Dortmunder Gold recently on tap at a seafood restaurant outside of Cleveland. Was skeptical since it had been a couple years since I had had it, but this beer is still as world class as it was before I knew what good beer was. If you grew up with Great Lakes you grew up spoiled.
