Bottle courtesy of Crushedvol poured into a 32 oz. plastic cup ;)
Pours a nice golden color with two fingers off sticky white head.
Smell is some nice herbal hops that compliment a strong grainy, malt character. Smells very clean and crisp (I know those words don't really mean anything but in this case they do to me :)
Taste is very nice. Balanced, good complex grains up front, a touch of malt sweetness, rounded with a more biscuity edge. Again the hop presence brings some herbal notes and bitterness that compliments the maltiness.
Mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Crisp, refreshing, full but not cloying, keeps me coming back for more.
Overall this is a very strong beer, I would definitely pick it up if it were distributed to my area.

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.
