Kudos to MA for bringing this Great Lakes brew to California. Next up their Burning River Pale and Christmas Ale.
This beer looks good as gilded, the head is a little lacking but this could be the pour. Nice hearty and malty aromas dominate the nose - nothing complex, but very pleasant. The Gold has bite...hops lurk quietly in the background of this barley patch. Great carbonation, no aftertaste. An eminently, quaffable session beer. In other words, a quality Dortmunder.
This is not my style of beer nowadays, but this is an excellent brew nonetheless. I dream of downing a few of these on draft in a Cleveland beer garden...
