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.

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.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
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 (4113) - 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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Orange color, bright gold, puffy white head, nice lacing. Nose of biscuity malts & grassy hops. The flavor has a medium body & a strong bitterness supporting it. Finishes crispy & balanced. Traditional Dort. Nice.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Sampled last night. I thought this was kind of a plain beer. Reminded me too much of a Pilsner. Aroma was malty and had some grainyness to it. Flavor was a lot of grainy tasting malts and grassy hops.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Pours a clear golden amber color. Small white head, nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is malty, not sweet, but well balanced. Flavor has lots of caramel, candy sweetness to it. Also a grassy hop kick.

Zeswaft (1625) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 I’m rerating this one because it’s a lot better than the first time. The aroma is malty and grassy. The flavor is full of malt and medium bodied. A nice rounded taste typical of a good lager. Taste is consistent from mouth to aftertaste.
