COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of lagers first made in Pilsn, Bohemia, in 1842 our highly drinkable version isn’t just gold and dear like the original. Czech Saaz and Classic American Cluster hops produce a delicate aroma and dry finish, along with a malty balance essential to the style. Follow the light and enjoy Presque Isle year round. You’ve found "the premium lager". 11°

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2011
12 oz bottle. I do not agree with most of the ratings on this beer at this site. You guys have it wrong. translucent golden. Smell: light hop, but nice, zesty malt accents. Smells like peach. Taste: smooth, malty middle, nice dry finish. Mouthfeel: Incredibly balanced beer, with an excellent aftertaste of crystal malt freshness. Drinkability: Quite high

Darker than expected. Thin head. Smelled of some type of spices, and the taste is inexplicably reminiscent of a pumpkin ale.

emacgee (3981) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a soft and pale blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is bready and malt forward with some musty and herbal notes with a lightly apple-y sweetness. Flavor is meh, bready malt and a lightly oxidized hop character. Medium body and kind of watery feel.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Straw in color, fairly clear, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grassy nose, a bit of hay, slightly sweet.   Minor veg.   Similar tongue, more straw and hay than grassiness.   Thankfully no veg.   Slightly mealy but not too bad.   Not dull, but also not crisp either.   Hangs on the tongue for a bit.   Heavier than other examples, but a hair.   Lingering sweet straw and hay on the exit.   Not bad, but fairly average.   Not too much stands out about this one.

nearbeer (3631) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2013
12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting disc of creamy foam. Almost non-existent nose has a touch of corn, grass and toast. Taste is a bit stronger with some corn, lightly toasted grain. Develops some touches of honey, citrus and grass. Near-medium body has smooth carbonation, starts sweet but is well balanced by a crisp grassy finish.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Almost clear with a hint of yellow. Almost no aroma, super subtle on the tongue too. A bit of carmelly-sweetness and a clean aftertaste. Nothing really to recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
