A - deep gold color with an off white head.
S - has a nice malty scent
T - Malts and hops are nicely balanced. Malts are the most present but the hops blend in nicely with a bit of citrus. Not much bitterness
M - body is medium and very crisp and easy to drink
O - this is pleasant and refreshing. This is top notch.

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.
