3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity notes, yeast, grains, some malt. Palate is a light to medium body, crisp clean refreshing mouth feel. The finish is sweet malt, fruity mild citrus, yeast and bread with a mild hops on the end for balance. This is good refreshing mild brew for a hot summer day.

Pours a clear bright pale gold with a fairly decent white head. Sweet grass aroma. Taste is crisp, sweet pale malt with some biscuits and new mown hay. Hops are well balanced with the malt to make for a refreshing pils. Quite good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours a bright clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of musky caramel malt, some honey, light grassy hops, and dry pils yeast. There is a lingering sweetness that sticks to the palate all the way through, grassy hops and graham cracker, with yeast on the finish. Nice!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow with a little orange and I swear a slight green tinge on it. Nice floral/bready aroma, quite a bit spicier than Great Lakes’ other lagers as is true to style. Flavor generally more of the same with a mouthfeel this seems a little heavy for a refreshing lager. Decent, but unexceptional pils.

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.

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.
