A - Golden pour with a high white foam that looks soapy and clings to the glass more than it laces. Small bubbles of carbonation move about.
S - Smells of fresh grain bread, honey, and pale malts.
T - Crisp taste that has notes of wheat, honey, and noble hops. For a relatively light style this has an incredible amount of flavor. I'd put this against any of its Eurpean counterparts. Finishes with a subtle amount of bitterness.
M - Easy drinking, and has a sandpaper grit on the tongue. Light bodied, but plenty of flavor.
O - I really enjoy how Great Lakes can make solid representations of basic styles. I would take this over plenty of comparable German imports. Just need to make another trip upstate to get this.

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.
