Pours golden with a white head. Weak aroma. Taste is average lagerish. Low hops, watery, almost bland. Proof that GLB actually makes a boring beer.

Pretty good and tasty, but not my favorite. Seemed like something was lacking. Kind of a hoppy beer to be called a lager in my opinion. Definitely drinkable...

Light gold color. Small to medium sized very foamy head. Aroma is bready and citrusy. A medium to light bodied Dort/Helles. Malts are bready, fruity and sweet. Mild hops. Tastes like a slightly toned down version of the Dortmunder Gold. Still has a nice malt/hop profile, just a little less of both. Mild flavored beer, a huge step up from Bud. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 I find this beer to be extremely smooth and still have a rich flavour of both malt and hops. It is not as bitter as the other Great Lakes beers, and makes an excellent choice when you want to buy a good beer for guests whose tastes you are unsure of. I actually like this one a lot better than the Dortmunder gold, which is supposedly a similar style. This beer is more mellow, but I also think it is richer and more complex.

This was just a normal beer with some kind of kick to it, a hoppy slightly bitter taste to it. Definitely something very different I havent tasted before, overal a good beer tasting beer.

Clear gold color with a creamy/soapy head. Sweet malt with slightly bitter hoppiness in the finish. A tiny bit of something off, but overall very drinkable.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Golden yellow color and light white head. Malty aroma with little hops. Clean flavor, bready, touches of corn at times, fairly light for the style even. Despite that, because its Great Lakes, this beer is not too bad.

Thanks to atpayne for this. Pours slight turbid gold with medium white head. Aroma of malt, slight hopcit. Has a Hellesy taste, with some hopcit and slight corn syrup at the finish.

Medium gold color with a decent head and lacing, and a mild bready spicy aroma. Light bodied and smooth, biscuity with a touch of citrus in the flavor and a clean finish. Very drinkable and it seemed to me a little lighter but still flavorful version of their outstanding Dortmunder Gold.

Pour golden yellow with fluffy quick dissipating white head...smell grass and canned tuna?...a little skunky...typical skunky watery taste...drinkable, but not the most pleasant beverage...
