The beer is a deep brassy color. After pouring, it initially had a thick white head which has receded to a thin layer over the top of the beer. As I take each sip, webs of lace form down the sides of my mug. The only reason I dont give this a 5 for appearance is the fact that it really more orange than gold, but thats just because I feel like being picky.
Sniffing the beer, I pick up a light grainy aroma.
This beer tastes wonderful. It is clean and refreshing, yet still complex and satisfying. The lightly sweet, bread like malt flavor is perfectly balanced with the refined hop bitterness. This beer is the very definition of balance.
The beer has a medium body and a moderate level of carbonation.
The drinkability of this beer is untouchable. There really isnt much more to say about it.

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.
