3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to glass shaker. Pours a dark, yet clear golden yellow. Has a real yeast / malt smell to the nose. I don’t really get any hop notes from it. The flavor shows off some faint bittering hop flavors. Mostly bready malt flavors. It is pretty smooth and buttery.
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Deep gold. Bready cereal aroma. Same om the first sip. Mild spice with honey finish. Hopper8 (178) - Holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2017
This is what I’m 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. ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2017
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. Won’t 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.

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 (5044) - 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!

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. ehaak26 (524) - - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle from Beers of the World. Aroma of hay with a bit of hop. It’s nice, geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2016
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 (215) - 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.
