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.

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 wonít 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 thatís regularly produced...Michael Jackson says that the heariest Dortmunderís come from the US these days, but...the only other one Iíve tried recently was Goose Islandís, what else is there?

moderate golden with no head, didnt detect much out of the aroma other than a little maltiness, flavor was slightly buttery

The hops are oxidized and the malt is too bright and itís too effervescent to be a dortmunder but itís good and itís easy drinking.

Light yellow. Effervescent. Grainy. Medium maltiness. Some bitterness, flavor hops in the background.

For stuff that is found in my grocery store, this stuff is excellent. Has an aroma reminiscent of the cantillon iris i had not too long ago... call me crazy, but it does. great, almost excellent interplay between the malt and the hops... very satisfying. god bless cleveland
