COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced hop character of this golden lager sparks thoughts of sandy beaches and rocky islands.

reggiedunlop (3409) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours clear gold with a medium white head...lively...nice retention and lacing. aroma has light sweet pils malt, a touch of fruitiness, and mild grass and straw...refreshing. flavor is spicy/grassy hoppiness atop straw...hoppier than the aroma suggests...crisp. mouthfeel is full and lively with a crisp, dry finish that lingers a bit with spicy/grassy hops. Pretty nice lager!

Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2015. It poured a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma was bread and some yeast. The taste was similar to the aroma with a touch of grass, some bitterness with a dry finish. It had a thin body.

superspak (3215) - Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 8/87/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A bit too fruity/estery in the nose, but not overwhelming. Taste of lemon, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes noticed in the flavor. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice Dortmunder lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

sawbuck (410) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2015
Sweet corn/grains on the nose. Thin golden yellow in color. Sweetness up front is full. Nice peppery finish on the back end. Nice balance and malty mouthfeel is delightful.

Bottle, pours gold with small white head. Could drink this all day, but not much of a wow factor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obfuscate (240) - Minneapolis, - FEB 17, 2015
Really reminds me of a Grolsch on the aroma and the taste, but not as good, pretty crisp and refreshing. I guess I was expecting something a little cleaner. There are better lagers.

ryecatcher (953) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours pale gold, smallish head. Nose is ’lager-y’ and it tastes pretty much like most craft-brewed lagers I’ve had... which is to say boring as fuck. Great brewery, lame style.
