Bought a Great Lakes variety pack during the summer. The best by date had passed, but still all the beers tasted great. This was one of my favs of the pack. Poured into a pilsner glass for review.
A: Pours a clear gold with nice foamy head. Good carbonation.
S: Bready notes with nice clean malt profile. A slight hint of malt syrup in the nose. No hop character.
T: Clean malty profile with nice upfront pilsner & seemingly munich malts. Very smooth and quite drinkable. Nice hop balance with what I'm guessing is a noble hop profile.
M: Clean, light, and very drinkable. Has a very nice balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness.
O: An excellent beer by Great Lakes. I'm getting into this brewery's beers more & more and this one is a fine reason why.

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.
