As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced hop character of this golden lager sparks thoughts of sandy beaches and rocky islands.

justsayswell (269) - Mission, Kansas, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Smells like a good lager. Pilsner malt, herbal/floral hops in the nose. Pours a translucent pale gold with an ephemeral head. No lacing. Palate is light and crisp, with crackery malts and a light but lingering hop bite in the finish. Unexciting perhaps, but accessible, tasty, and cohesive. No off flavors. A well done lager.

6 oz taster pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grass, malts and some earthy notes. Taste is grains and toast.

A beer that tastes very much like beer. No frills, no abundance of hops or strong malt profile, just a plain ol’ beer-tastin’ beer. Pale Euro-malts give up a crisp, yeasty bread-n-hay front followed quickly by a dry middle and a mildly sweet Pils finish. As straightforward as beer can be, easy to drink and almost instantly forgettable. Nonetheless, a worthy bottle to keep on hand for the unconverted Budchugger.

I’m not getting the low scores here, this is a damn near perfect czech pils. I would drink this anywhere anytime. Really nice soft malting, classic soft water effects with the gentle hop aromatics and floral hop bitterness that perfectly complements the dry crackery malts. Pale golden color.

Bottle as Lager of the Lakes from Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of grasses. Flavor is bitter grass, light fruitiness, glue, and malt. Boring, ordinary, all that.

Bottle. Golden clear appearance and pretty flat. Slightly fruity and a reasonable thirst quencher, but thats amout all. Average to the point of being boring.

thegreenrooster (4179) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pour is a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is a wet doughy malt with a little burning. Flavor is a clean pale malt with a bit of bitterness after the swallow. Very thick body for a lager but again very clean and you get the full richness of the malt. If only all pale lagers could be made this way.

ciocanelu (1804) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 25, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly malty, grainy, clean. Taste follows with the clean, grainy malt profile but there is also a medium earthy hop bitterness. It doesn’t linger to long though. Light to medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall it’s an easy drinking clean lager but I think it’s a bit too harsh with its earthy bitterness.

Thanks altonbrownd for the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered bright golden yellow with a head of clean white foam. The nose shows mildly sweet lager malt. The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Completely dry with a very light practically undetectable malt backbone. Comparatively strong but overall light hoppy bitterness on the finish that seems out of place. Disjointed flavors and hoppy bitterness that should not have been added for this style.
