It is the best tasting beer I have ever come across. It's like they created a brita filter for beer and it pissed out the most reliable, un-offensive beer of all time. It's one of the greats, I just hope someone else sees it for how great it really is.

Fantastic beer. Beautiful deep gold in color, rich tasting. This is a quality beer and you know it by looking at it, smelling it, tasting it. Top notch.

I don't always drink a lager, but when I do... I drink Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. This is a truly incredible beer. Though I try to avoid using the word "drinkability" I can't dodge it here. Thankfully, however, drinkability with this beer does not mean tastelessness or watered down flavor. I highly recommend this beer.
