3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear, bubbly, yellow gold with a tall white head.
Slightly lemony grain malt aroma.
Solid pilsner malt, crisp floral taste.
Overall, Great Lakes deserves more notice than it gets....nearly always solid beers out of this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Bright straw golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal, noble hops and fresh baked bread. Flavor is crisp, clean, hoppy, with some mild sweet malt presence. Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Finishes with a bitter hop note. Nice, crisp pils.

On tap at the brewpub (God how I miss this place no longer living in Cleveland). The first attempt at a Pilsner that I tried from Great Lakes was the Prohibition Pils, and that one didn’t do it for me; that beer was too thick and the hops were too weak. With this beer, I think they got it right (at least the way I like it). Light body, crisp, clean hops. Hops are slightly floral, beer is light in color and body but grainy malt is strongly evident in the aroma. Very enjoyable and I’d gladly drink again. One of the better Pilsners I’ve tasted to come out of an American brewery.

Bottle. Light yellow. A nice sweet drinkable pils with high carb that doesn't get in the way. Some floral hops stand out. Good stuff.

On draft. Pale golden color with one finger head. Malty and grassy aroma. Dry finish and crisp. Ends with a sweet maltiness. Good pils.

Drank from bottle. Light flavor and crispily carbonated. Good for the style, which isn’t my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold color with a ton of white foam. Light floral hop aroma with some light malts. Flavor is very light as well. Some hop bitterness and that’s about it. Way over carbonated.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Rather dry with a floral finish. Not a great selection from GLBC.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow gold color. Large foamy white head. Fragrant, grainy malt nose. Crisp sweet malt flavor. Citrus hops come into play. A nice balance of malt and hops. Complex citrus hops in finish. Very tasty and refreshing. Nicely done.
