Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2007
On tap at Close Quarters, this was a very nice beer. Floral aroma with a slightly fruity flavor and that fades into a noble hop bitterness. Very refreshing, glad to see that Great Lakes is offering up some more beers that are distributed.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Draft at Brewery - A great Pilsner. Very refreshing on a hot day. Pale yellow color with a frothy white head. As the description says, it was a very crisp pils with the right combination of malt and hops. Greta carbonation.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 It’s BACK (but now Prohibtion Pilsner)! On tap at The Station, Springfield, OH. Delicious Pils, with a hint of corn sweetness and body (only when fully warmed) which adds some heft. Great grassiness and dryness at the end (a little sticky there). Hoppiness of drying Saaz in abundance (40 IBU). I love this beer -so drinkable, great introduction to Noble hops, to the whole tradition of Classic American Pilsner.

on tap, poured into a pilsner glass a: translucent light straw yellow color, bubbling 1/4" head with decent retention. light lacing rings the glass s: clean smell, light malt and floral hops t: light malt flavor cut by floral/noble hop bitterness. Well balanced beer. Not as bitter as i would have guessed by the advertised 40 IBUs. m&d: light bodied, crisp and clean. Excellent pilsner. Very drinkable, almost the most sessionable GLBC Beer.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Draft at the Riverside in Kent, OH on 7/3/07. Crystal clear yellow gold under a small white head. Aroma has fresh grain, grass, and the expected floral character offered up by the Noble hops. Nice clean mouthfeel with a light body and moderate effervescence. There is a good balance between a light malty sweetness and a refreshing and lasting bitterness. This is a good quality Pils.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2007
On tap @ Dilly Deli: Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma, light bready malts, some floral hop notes. Flavor, bready malts, floral, and lightly spicy hops. A soft sweetness to it, very refreshing beer. Quite nice.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Golden color. Whispy head. Snappy nose full of hops and sourdough. Pleasant malty character accompanied by rather pumped up hops. Crisp, dry finish. Quite hoppy for a pils, and very drinkable.

aracauna (3052) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a clear gold with a typical white head. The aroma is peppery and slightly musky with hops. This is a pleasantly hoppy pils with a good dry malt backing it up. Good pils.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
On draught at Gallo’s Tap Room in Columbus: Pours yellow-gold with a thin white head that lasts awhile. Thin rings of lacing. Grassy hops aroma with hints of malt. Light, dry body with floral hops and earthy malt flavors. The finish is somewhat bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. While not normally one of my favorite styles, I found this Pils rather enjoyable.

6/20/2007: Great Lakes Prohibition Pils is a beautiful clear straw color with a dense, foamy, white head that leaves lots of intricate, foamy lacing made of fine bubbles. The unique aroma is kind of musty with a slight sourness to it. The flavor is crisp and slightly mustly as well with a mild to moderate spicy, grassy, and peppery hoppiness that stays with you. The medium-light body matches the flavors and style well. This is a very interesting interpretation of a Pils. It is different and reminds me more of a farmhouse-style ale...

Draught sample at Dilly Deli. Thanks Peanut! Rating #25 for this beer...
