COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Nice clear color and fresh aroma. Like a thick pilsner taste, with a touch of honey. Very very drinkable.

This was one great beer. As has been said, this is extremely well balanced--a beautiful combination of malt and hops. The palate is smooth and the flavor is great. A wonderful beer that could be consumed quite regularly.

Extremely well balanced and tasty - especially for a lager. Nice malty flavor with a decent balance of hops. A nice fruity sour apple finish. It would be a nice intorductory beer for thos who only drink macros.

Indeed a good beer. A little too bitter for my taste, and it feels also somewhat similiar to Budweiser. Its not golden in its colour as I expected, it is more like amber.

This is a wonderful tasting and looking beer. It is so smooth and enjoyable. Perfect blend of flavors and bitterness. So far I have to say this is my favorite of the Great Lakes beers.

This is a very very good beer. It's Malty with a twinge of citrus. This is my favorite of the Great lakes brews.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Malty aroma with some citrus in the background. Perfect golden color. Foamy but diminishing white head. Tangy front. Spicy hops give way to a slowly rising malt presence. Clean , dry finish. A crisp bite from the carbonation at lower temperatures mellows as the beer warms. Start to finish one of the finest lagers in the world. A must for both fans of this style and for those who have written off pale lager styles.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Wow. A brilliant sparkling gold color. A sensuous head of lofting beauty. Definite orange/citrus aroma flavor with just bite of bitterness from the hops. Finishes dry, yet leaves your mouth watering for more. One of the best beers brewed in the world.

Medium golden colored with a full head. Good spice and hop profile makes this very authentic tasting. True to style and quite drinkable.

This beer is an excellent combination of the bread-like European malts and spicy noble hops. An excellent session brew that leaves you thirsty for more beer.
