Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold

This beer is one of the most highly decorated beers I have ever sampled, but ironically I had only heard of one other brew from this brewery...

Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold is a clear, bronze-gold lager with a two-finger white foam head. The beer smells malty with faint hop notes, and the first taste is caramel sweetness with a grassy hop bite in the finish.

This 5.8% ABV brew has won 13 of the last 16 Gold Medals at the World Beer Championships, not including the Silver in 2003! How is that for absolute dominance in it's class?!


  1. It's not made in Germany, I know,

    But give this good lager a go,

    You'll be filled with wonder,

    When tasting Dortmunder,

    Thanks be to Great Lakes Brewing Co.

  2. Thanks for the comment - and AMAZING site BTW! It takes incredible talent what you do and I commend you!
