COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz bottle "Lager of the Lakes" label. Pours to a beautiful, bright, golden color, with a tall, white head that fades, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is nice, with some good herbal and grassy hops, paired with some grainy, pale malt aromas. The palate is firm, with good pale and grainy malt flavor, on a very clean, round body. This beer finishes with more good crisp, pale and grainy malt flavor up front, then ends with some good herbal/grassy hop bitterness that balances. Very well done example of pilsner, that is very flavorful, yet dangerously drinkable. It could have used a touch more hop aromatics, but I found this beer to be very authentic, and impressive. Very food friendly, and a good session beer, you could pound this one by the liter.

Golden color, white head, moderate lacing...not over the top. Clean and crisp aroma, solid malty smell with a spicy hop aroma. Tastes of tropical fruit, smooth, very crisp. etc. very impressive.

Great citrus aroma and flavor, with plenty of hop to keep it from being too sweet. This sort of reminds me of a scaled-back Cisco Summer of Lager. Nice beer! Thanks to PsychProf for this one!

Pours clear gold with a medium white head...lively...nice retention and lacing. aroma has light sweet pils malt, a touch of fruitiness, and mild grass and straw...refreshing. flavor is spicy/grassy hoppiness atop straw...hoppier than the aroma suggests...crisp. mouthfeel is full and lively with a crisp, dry finish that lingers a bit with spicy/grassy hops. Pretty nice lager!

Lager of the lakes, light refreshing good head perfect amount of hops. Easy to drink and enjoy on a hot summer night or after a bad day at work. Easy to drink a whole sixer in one sitting. Love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear, light straw color with a small white head. The aroma is grass, yeast and some grains. The taste is a slight yeasty bread flavor with some grass tossed in.

On tap at Bell's with great company! A raw flavorful, full-bodied lager, positive dripping with pale malt and incredibly tingly with high hop levels. Delciious.

Lightly cloudy, smallish head. Intensive aroma of garden after rain, fresh good malt and green hops. Same goes to flavour. Rich hopy that blends so nicely with malty backbone. Specific signature taste this beer have. Great pils unusually made but that did not hurt it helped in this case.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Pours golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of bready lager yeast, firm maltiness, a bit of mustiness. Taste has a firm malty backbone with a fragrant balance of Saaz. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly resinous hoppiness. Well made lager, quite delicious.
