Golden pale lager color with no head. Aroma has some strange citrus character, but not hops. Flavor very clean and crisp with only a little citrus kick. One good thing is I knocked out another style. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
On tap at the brewery. Clear gold in color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is lemon butter on crescent rolls, along with some honey and lime juice. Sweet and crisp; this ain’t no light beer. Crisp and freshly baked biscuits. Malt sweetening with a slight pils twang. A little waxy on the palate, and a good summer quaff. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Light aromatic hops, crisp and a bit fruity. Mild grapefruit and citrus oil with touch of pine. Bright golden amber clear with foamy smooth white lacing head. Medium body, bit creamy, with medium carbonation. Starts crisp and hoppy, nice malty sweetness to blend out any astringent bitterness. Fruity and light on hops, nice acidity. Finish is clean and just a bit sweet. Light bitter after. A really nice lager, refreshing and clean. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Orange color, bright gold, puffy white head, nice lacing. Nose of biscuity malts & grassy hops. The flavor has a medium body & a strong bitterness supporting it. Finishes crispy & balanced. Traditional Dort. Nice. 1FastSTi (3361) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Sampled last night. I thought this was kind of a plain beer. Reminded me too much of a Pilsner. Aroma was malty and had some grainyness to it. Flavor was a lot of grainy tasting malts and grassy hops.

Pours a clear golden amber color. Small white head, nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is malty, not sweet, but well balanced. Flavor has lots of caramel, candy sweetness to it. Also a grassy hop kick. Zeswaft (1775) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 I’m rerating this one because it’s a lot better than the first time. The aroma is malty and grassy. The flavor is full of malt and medium bodied. A nice rounded taste typical of a good lager. Taste is consistent from mouth to aftertaste. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2005

Golden bodied (bordering on amber) with a creamy head that became a film in no time. Like a genie, it’s effervescence happily stated that it was glad to be back out of that bottle. Some buttered-popcorn, diacetylic aromas with grassy and herbal hops. Malts apparent in taste, after a mildly bitter start. More full-bodied than I expected. I’d say Great Lakes acheived exactly what they pursued, congratulations!

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 Bottle: The aroma is bready with some light notes of caramel, honey, apple, and faint citrus. It pours a transparent golden-amber with a large off-white head with very good retention. The flavor starts lightly sweet with honey, caramel, and a hint of apple. The finish has some light citrus notes, spice, and the faintest touch of grass. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slight stickiness to it. My review is pretty simple and really can’t do the beer justice, but this is pretty much a perfect session beer. doubletriple (52) - Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2005
MMMMMMM....great lawnmower brew and even past its prime it was crisp and refreshing with nice noble hop aroma and the buttery soft flavor of really good lagers. Glad I picked this sixer up for only 4.99. Nice.
