Pours a very bright gold with a huge, foamy head. Malt and bread notes, with a hint of fruit. A very good pils! SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours a crystal clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity notes, yeast, grains, some malt. Palate is a light to medium body, crisp clean refreshing mouth feel. The finish is sweet malt, fruity mild citrus, yeast and bread with a mild hops on the end for balance. This is good refreshing mild brew for a hot summer day. wxman (1813) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a clear bright pale gold with a fairly decent white head. Sweet grass aroma. Taste is crisp, sweet pale malt with some biscuits and new mown hay. Hops are well balanced with the malt to make for a refreshing pils. Quite good. Atom (2418) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2014
12oz bottle pours a bright clear golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of musky caramel malt, some honey, light grassy hops, and dry pils yeast. There is a lingering sweetness that sticks to the palate all the way through, grassy hops and graham cracker, with yeast on the finish. Nice! ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Clear yellow with a little orange and I swear a slight green tinge on it. Nice floral/bready aroma, quite a bit spicier than Great Lakes’ other lagers as is true to style. Flavor generally more of the same with a mouthfeel this seems a little heavy for a refreshing lager. Decent, but unexceptional pils.
Patrickctenchi (6552) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours clear, bubbly, yellow gold with a tall white head.
Slightly lemony grain malt aroma.
Solid pilsner malt, crisp floral taste.
Overall, Great Lakes deserves more notice than it gets....nearly always solid beers out of this brewery.

Not bad. Refreshing and drinkable. Very golden with little head. Would drink again in a pinch. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Bright straw golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal, noble hops and fresh baked bread. Flavor is crisp, clean, hoppy, with some mild sweet malt presence. Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Finishes with a bitter hop note. Nice, crisp pils. cazort (561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the brewpub (God how I miss this place no longer living in Cleveland). The first attempt at a Pilsner that I tried from Great Lakes was the Prohibition Pils, and that one didn’t do it for me; that beer was too thick and the hops were too weak. With this beer, I think they got it right (at least the way I like it). Light body, crisp, clean hops. Hops are slightly floral, beer is light in color and body but grainy malt is strongly evident in the aroma. Very enjoyable and I’d gladly drink again. One of the better Pilsners I’ve tasted to come out of an American brewery. John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow. A nice sweet drinkable pils with high carb that doesn't get in the way. Some floral hops stand out. Good stuff.
