This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Clear orange. Smells like a bail of hay, along with some honey and dark fruit. Very crisp overall, with an oily finish. Very tasty, full of tobacco, honey, hay and malts.

Not a huge lauger fan, but this one is not too bad. Has a nice bitter taste to it, and no unrulely aftertaste.

hopscotch (10180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Clear, deep golden lager with a large, off-white, creamy head. Nice, malty nose and flavor with notes of butterscotch and caramel in each. Well-bittered and medium-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Smooth, clean finish. Not my thing, but very good for the style.

Nice golden color, with a light head. Kind of a bready flavor. Really hard to describe. Good though.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Looks like a lager, peach color. Nice white foam head. Smells floral, maybe a slight citrus smell. Definitely a little wheat. Not really that much flavor. A little musty perhaps. Very light flavor. A little tangy bitterness in the finish and that is it. Not the best Great Lakes has to offer but OK.

I got this in a 1/6 bbl from the brewery. It has a beautiful golden color. The smell is sweet like fruit, but also hoppy. It has a very full taste for a lighter beer. The malt and hops blend together very well. This is a beer you can drink over and over. Great Lakes is one of the best breweries around.

Bottle. Pours dark golden color with a large white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly ale-like, rich lightly roasted malts, spice and floral hops. Flavor also reminds me of a blonde ale, rich caramel malts and complex hop character. Medium body with creamy carbonation. One of my favorite lagers ever!

Dortmunder Gold is truly golden in color, such a deep gold that it must be seen to sppreciate the depth of color this beer displays. It has a great hop aroma which rivals a good bottle of Pilsner Urquell. The taste is very full and satisfying, with the clean lager finish. This beer will leave a lace that is extrordinary. Truly an exceptional beer.
