Very tasty lager. Little bit of sour flavor with some hoppiness and fruit aftertaste. Not as good as some of the other great lakes brews, but damn good nonetheless.

This is easily the least impressive Great Lakes brew that I have tried. Pours a very pale opaque color with a small head. Very light smells of corn and malt. The taste is slight bubblegum and malt. The finish is definitely dirt. Not a smooth beer in any way. A dissapointing beer from a good brewer. Thanks civforprez.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Clear yellow gold with a nice bright white head. Good lacing. Lightly hoppy nose, slight straw malt. The flavor is dry straw and a nice peppery hop bite in the end. It’s not hoppy, but there’s enough hops to keep it from blandness.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Pours golden with just a little cloudiness, but mostly clear. Small head lasts. Dry, just a bit, and with a touch of bitterness. Malt and hops are not lost on the palate, and wrok well wiht the slight dry feel. A great lager.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2004
12 oz bottle: golden yellow with a slight haze. Loud, fizzy carbonation dances on top for a short time before dying abruptly into a small patch. Tiny bubbles rise through my tall glass continuously. . . sweet hoppy aroma: a bit of hay, cedar and clean malt. Tangy hop flavour with fairly strong, tight carbonation. Good flavour and texture, not bad.

Tmoney99 (11076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Golden color with medium head. Pleasent hop flavor and finished with a good balance of bitter and malt. Very drinkable with light meal.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2004
The beer as it decamps from the bottle a limpid gold color with a comfortable sized head that is creamy and bright white in color, the lace a fine coating upon the glass. Nose is a tad earthy, but dominated by the sweet malt, also crisp and fresh with the start somewhat sweet, and a nice malt presence, top is middling in its feel. Finish is hard-nosed in its acidity, the hops are apropos to the style, quite dry aftertaste that lingers, a fine drinking beer, one that I could drink several of.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Light copper body with a thin white head. No lacing.
Malt with a real pils kick in the aroma. Some bready/fruity notes.
Malty clean flavor. Pils comes out again with a little flowery hop flavor. Nice and grainy. Well balanced.
Medium to full bodied. Smooth and drinkable.

Yellow color with medium head.Bready aroma with not much else.Taste is somewhat smooth and sweet with some malt flavor coming to the palate. Overall a fizzy kinf of plain lager.
