COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Totally out of wack diacetyl thing going on here. Butter flavored through and through, with a slight hop bitterness and a touch of sweetness.

This brew is VERY smooth. It goes down much too easy. This is what those "Macro" american lagers should strive for: flavor and body.

Honey colored pour with a quickly disappearing white head. Malty nose that has an almost delicate quality to it. Thin to medium body that qualifys this as an everyday/session beer for me. Excellent balance and flavor. Top notch brew, only wish I could get this in California.Thanks to hopsrus for this one.

Draft: Very nice offering. My first from Great Lakes Brewery, but based upon this beer, it won’t be my last.

This lager is light with barely any trace of hops. Very smooth taste that makes for easy drinking.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2002
A nose of fresh baked bread and a beautiful golden color lead to a lager that is gentle, round, soft, and light on the palate with a finish that is semi-bitter at the throat. Nice session beer. I could drink 50 of these! OK, in two days!

Very malty, not really "hardwater" enough for the style, but damn good beer, one of the better American lagers that’s regularly produced...Michael Jackson says that the heariest Dortmunder’s come from the US these days, but...the only other one I’ve tried recently was Goose Island’s, what else is there?
