This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle poured into lager glass. No great surprise, the appearance is golden with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit skunky, but otherwise there seems to be a decent hops/malt balance. Same goes for the taste. Not very exciting. Smooth feel, though. Overall, Im pretty disappointed in this beer. Id heard good things about it, but this just seemed a better version of an American light lager. Not very impressive.

This is what Im talking about. What a nice Lager style beer. The malts and Hops balance together smoothly to make a nice grain profile to the beer. Slight malt off taste at the end, but kinda also makes the beer enjoyable. Definitely a go to session beer.

First few drinks had kind of a "skunked" beer taste. Got a little bit better as I drank more and complemented it with some yummy bread. Decent ABV. Slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Average at best. Wont be drinking again. Penn Gold is better example of this style (as far as taste). Still trying to find a brew from Great Lakes Brewing that I like.

Mindwarp (275) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a deep gold with a thick white head and nice lacing. Heavy malt aroma with some sweetness. Taste follows nose. Seems thicker than it probably is. Not fond of the aftertaste.

stevoj (4829) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle from Giant. Nice rich golden color, clear, initial foamy head fades to skin. Nice grainy, grassy aroma, hay. Taste even moreso, smooth, grains prevalent, slightly sweet, Beautiful malty flavors, a bit sticky, which coast the tongue and makes the flavors linger. Nice!

Aggiebob (1067) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle. Orange gold in color poured with a white head that quickly dissipated. Very light malty aroma with caramel, honey and a little fruitiness in the flavor. Clean mouth feel.

Cereal grain smell, taste is cereal malt sweet but not quite too much, one dimensional, smooth, low carbonation, like cereal water really...in Syracuse for 15th high school reunion

skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Pours golden with a half finger white head with just some lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, sweet malts, floral hops, grass, earthy hops, caramel, and some biscuit malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty, easy drinking, sessionable helles.

ghostbeer (203) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Nice and crisp with great body and underlying structure. This is what I always hope for in a lager. Very good and clean. I feel this would be a great intro to craft beer for non-craft beer drinkers.

Shot (501) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a fluffy white head. Substantial cling. Aromas of roasted malts and fruity esters. Flavors are toasted malt, caramel, fruit, and German hops. Exceedingly smooth. Nice toasty flavors. Clean mouthfeel. Gotta like this one.
