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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
Clear amber gold body topped by a medium thick sustaining head with good lace. Somewhat sweet yet bitter aroma with piney and peppery notes. Sweet and bitter hop flavor with a good malt balance with piney notes and a bitter hoppy finish with a touch of pepper. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

fraternie (935) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2003
About as good as this style gets. Nice golden color. Rich malt for the style, caramel and toffee present, quite flavorful. Moderately hoppy and perfectly smooth. A nice surpise.

Panzuriel (1513) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Light yellow liquid. Nice head. Good strong flavor. Good carbonation. Nice full flavor with hints of sweetness. A good beer, just not all that special.

This is an outstanding lager. One that puts faith back into the lagers. Great bright clear gold with a nice head. Flavor is sweet and finishes with a little hop to it.

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.
