Pours a rich, transparent amber color with a decent-sized head. Lacing is persistent, with attractive reticulation. Aroma is pleasantly wheaty, if unremarkable. Really digging the perky carbonation. Flavor is as suggested on the label: not as dry as a Pilsner, though less malty than a traditional lager. This combination makes for an incredibly balanced and highly drinkable brew. Hops flavor is clean and appropriately present. I'm not much of a lager man, especially lighter lagers, but there's no denying this beer is well crafted and a worthy champion of its style.

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.
