12 oz. bottle poured into Great Lakes pint glass.
This beer makes me proud to be from Cleveland.
A: Body is a transparent gold, amazing clarity. Very nice frothy two-finger head that has great retention and leaves trails of lacing behind.
S: Smells of lightly toasted sweet malts, bready with a faint note of hops.
T: Bready/biscuity malts balanced very well by a clean, slightly citrusy hop profile. Malt is prevalent up front, while the aftertaste is more hoppy. Also, maybe a slight bit of yeast in the aftertaste, leaving the tongue and mouth a bit dry.
M/D: Great amount of carbonation, this beer is highly drinkable and refreshing... and one of my favorite session beers hands down. Light to medium body.
Serving type: bottle

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.
