On a recent road trip to Ohio, I picked up a few Buckeye State brews including this season-appropriate offering from Great Lakes. The pour produced a respectable lager head and a good quality lager smell. The crystal-clear orange color was lighter than I would have expected for the style, and similarly the taste, while pleasant, was also more like an amber lager than an oktoberfest beer. Somewhat malty, flavor with suggestions of toasted bread and a slight sour note. For the style I would have expected more malt, more body, and maybe a little less hops at the end. That said, this is a pleasant beer with substantial character, and I look forward to savoring my remaining bottles.
