Crystal clear golden amber with a firm white head.
Warm, toasty aroma with a little caramel and raisin. Some hop aromas poke through, but it's a malty nose.
Very similar to GLBC's Dortmunder Gold in it's flavor. Roasty, toasty with that well-balanced bitterness ... A touch sweeter (fruitier) in the beginning and a little more alcoholic bitterness at the end.
Thicker than the Gold, but smooth and enjoyable. I like it. Maybe not enough to drop that kind of money when I can get very close to this very good beer with the Gold. Oh, who am I kidding. I'll buy more. I love GLBC. They're the shit.
