First of all, Lakes makes some dang good beers. Awesome awesome selection in Cleveland (obviously), and because I was here on a conference I couldn't help but splurge.

This and another were on tap at the hotel restaurant I was drinking at, and even though everyone else was ordering the watered down standard, I jumped on this Gold.

Head was good and foamy, decent lacing all the way down. The color was oaky burnt orange, with an old wood smell. The taste was crisp, which to me was very surprising for a Lager. Nonetheless, by the end of my time, and fifth one, I had the whole group drinking this brew. Good times, definitely a recommend, am gonna try to procure some for my journey back to Texas before I leave.
