2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Pours light amber with a thin foamy white head. Nose is lightly honeyed pale malt some rustic graininess, faint herbal hopping, dusty yeast, and just a whiff of heat. Taste has a lot of the same malty graininess and yeast, and the same herbal hopping. There’s a sharp note on the finish, however, that throws the whole thing off. I can’t tell if it’s a boozy snap or if it’s a hop, but it definitely is sharp. Before that, this was looking pretty good. With the sharpness, I’m not a fan.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light gold color with a medium lasting head. Lots of carbonation, a continuous stream of bubbles on all sides of the glass, very pleasant to look at, mesmerizing. A light grassy floral aroma with bread notes. Slight peppery taste, grassy. The finish is mildly acidic from the carbonation and lasting. Very pleasing on the palate and quite drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent yellow colored body. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of softly acidic hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a clear, light golden color, a very modest amount of white head foam that quickly diminished to a thin ring & film, and didn’t offer much in the way of lacing. The nose was light grain, some distinctive Pils malt, light corn scent, and a little earthiness. Light to medium bodied, maybe just a hint of sweetness, but mainly dry, the carbonation was disappointedly on the soft side, and noble hop bitterness was moderate and mildly earthy. Crisp & clean. An okay German Pils.

Pale straw in color with a white head. Cereal malts and doughy yeast. Almost like cake batter on the nose. Lightly sweet with a nice bitterness for a pilsner. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012
Location: Bottle shared by jcos, 10/19/12
Aroma: The nose a little grainy, some spice, and a little grassy and floral hops
Appearance: it pours a hazes golden-yellow, with a white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, it is decently spicy, and has a crisp hoppy bitterness to it
Palate: It has a crisp, clean feel, a lightish body, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Very solid Pils with a nice hop presence to it and a clean Pils type of feel. Good example of style. Great Lake does a great job of making really good examples of some beer styles that don’t always tend to be all that exciting from other breweries.
