Its called Dortmunder , from great lakes brewing. I went to applebees for fajitas and had one of the tall glasses of this stuff and it went so well with the fajitas Im gonna have to go back and do it again. It could probably be considered a dark or medium lager ??? Im wondering now if there is a clone recipe for it somewhere. It wouldnt be the same but if it was even close it would be good.

Try their edmund fitzgerald porter...it's probably in my top 5 as far as porters go. Great Lakes makes a lot of good beer.

I love their beers. My favorites are Elliot Ness, Conway's Irish & Christmas Ale. If you ever go to Cleveland and can visit, they have stuff on tap at the brewery that they don't sell otherwise.

I actually haven't had their beer, but my sister-in-law and her husband discovered it when they lived in Cleveland. They're in Jersey now, but make occasional trips back to Ohio and always pick up a case or two of the Dortmund Gold before they return. I'll have to try it one of these days!

The Dortmunder Gold is fantastic. Wish I could get great lakes beer out here. I too would be interested in a clone-like recipe.

I went to high school right next door to that place, its real nice. Whenever they are brewing, the smell would just waft through the entire campus, it was great!
I am a huge fan of the new Lake Erie Monster, look out for it, its their summer seasonal.

This is about as light in color as you can get. Dortmunder is actually a style coming from a specific part of Germany. Its a blonde or pale lager. The beer is good though, easy drinking.

hmmm....I've been seeing that stuff in the liquor store but have yet to pick any up. I'm in MN so I don't have issues finding it, I've just never heard much about it and I always seem to find something else that catches my eye.....will be grabbing a 6 pack now next time I'm at the beer store

Great Lakes is the only thing I miss about Ohio! My favorite is their Blackout Stout winter seasonal. Dortmunder Gold is a good go-to since every bar in Cleveland has it on tap.

Like mezak1gd said, Dortmunder Export is an actual style of Light Lager
