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.

Rich grassy hop aroma. Thin head, murky orange. Light bodied, sweet with grassy bittering hops. Slight earthiness.

thegreenrooster (4003) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Pour is a bright gold with a white head. Aroma is malty with a touch of hops. Flavor is crisp and dry. Malts used in this one carry the beer. If you in the mood for a malty lager then this is for you.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured an orange/gold. Decent, soapy head that dispersed within a few minutes. Nice lacing. Slight aroma is balanced with muted hops and malt. Flavor consists of bittering hops and some malt as well. Nice dry finish. Carbonation give it a good mouthfeel and adds some body. Overall, this is a nice lager with some hops flavor. I recommend this beer.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUL 22, 2005
A golden color and light aroma. Nicely bittered with a sweet/dry finish. A nice clean crisp taste to the beer.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Light, shiny gold/amber color, thin creamy/soapy white head. Aroma has a wet, day old cut grass thing, along with a dry white-wine malt sense to it. Nice and pleasant sweet taste, with a papery note to it. Nice and crisp and very enjoyable overall, but maybe the sweetness will get annoying.

This is a great beer with a fantastic finish. Works well with lots of different food, or by itself.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2007 Pours golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma is metallic lager yeast, herbal Hallertau, and a bit of sour corn mash. Taste is bready, grainy, a bit metallic, with bitter grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Great Lakes, please, please, stop the filtering and pasteurization, Dortmunder Gold would be stellar if you’d just quit the nonsense. Beer should last longer than 3 months.

Golden pale lager color with no head. Aroma has some strange citrus character, but not hops. Flavor very clean and crisp with only a little citrus kick. One good thing is I knocked out another style.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
On tap at the brewery. Clear gold in color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is lemon butter on crescent rolls, along with some honey and lime juice. Sweet and crisp; this ain’t no light beer. Crisp and freshly baked biscuits. Malt sweetening with a slight pils twang. A little waxy on the palate, and a good summer quaff.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Light aromatic hops, crisp and a bit fruity. Mild grapefruit and citrus oil with touch of pine. Bright golden amber clear with foamy smooth white lacing head. Medium body, bit creamy, with medium carbonation. Starts crisp and hoppy, nice malty sweetness to blend out any astringent bitterness. Fruity and light on hops, nice acidity. Finish is clean and just a bit sweet. Light bitter after. A really nice lager, refreshing and clean.
