12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light honey, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light honey, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very good pilsner style. Good balance and robustness of flavor; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Poured into a Parkbrau Pils glass on 5/15/12
Clear, golden yellow color with a small head - only about 1/3 of an inch of white foam. Not much retention, but there's a little bit of lace.
Bready and lightly toasted grains are balanced by grassy noble hops and a faint juiciness, a la lemon. Aside from a slight metallic notion right after being poured (which goes away shortly), this smells decent enough. The hops are a little more assertive to taste, but are fairly standard issue for an American company brewing a pilsner - moderate kick of lemongrass and such. The malt bill is clean and tastes good; decent amount of light grains. Dusty wheat as it warms. Mild noble hop bitterness lingers. The feel is crisp with a little juiciness around the edges; it's light-bodied overall. Carbonation is right around average for the style; maybe on the low side of average.
Lake Beerie is rather enjoyable. The wheat seems like a nice addition.
