Appearance is a clear, bright amber with a nice-sized white head. Lacing is fair, with a good level of head retention. Smells are of grassy hops, pale malts and spices.
Has a sharp taste, with a moderate amount of bittering from the hops. Bready, but dry and not sweet. Mouthfeel is clean, with a light to medium body and high carbonation. Finishes dry and with bitter, grassy hops. A little bit of vegetable aftertaste.
This isn't a style I'm very crazy about, but Great Lakes put out a solid lager nonetheless.

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.
