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.

A-clear golden color, slight off white head that disappears quickly, no significant lacing
M-full body, carbonation is nice and light
T-malt is mellow, bitterness is a nice balance and not over powering
S-fruity aroma

O- very drinkable and true to the style, I would down a couple after cutting the grass on a hot summer day.
