Query: citing Google Scholar

I need the help of the wisdom of the flist! It's so long since I did any serious academic work (well, two and a half years, but a lot can change in that time...). I have an article that I found on Google Scholar, and GS links directly to a pdf file that you download, not to a website, so I assume that I cite it as I would any other online fulltext database, like EBSCO?? Is this a correct assumption?? Are people actually putting "accessed Google Scholar" and then whatever date?
