4.68/5 rDev +14.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A - Golden pour with a high white foam that looks soapy and clings to the glass more than it laces. Small bubbles of carbonation move about.
S - Smells of fresh grain bread, honey, and pale malts.
T - Crisp taste that has notes of wheat, honey, and noble hops. For a relatively light style this has an incredible amount of flavor. I'd put this against any of its Eurpean counterparts. Finishes with a subtle amount of bitterness.
M - Easy drinking, and has a sandpaper grit on the tongue. Light bodied, but plenty of flavor.
O - I really enjoy how Great Lakes can make solid representations of basic styles. I would take this over plenty of comparable German imports. Just need to make another trip upstate to get this.

A: As the name suggests, it pours a bright gold hue with a small amount of carbonation. Thin head that doesn't much lacing if at all on the glass.
S: A little to be desired. A faint bready-grain wiff. Maybe some cereal. It's a pilsner, can't expect too much.
T: Extremely well balanced. The cereal is more assertive at first and then comes the sweetness from the malts. In the end, one can get a slight taste of booze, but it pairs well with the cereal.
M: Full-medium bodied. A little creamy from the carbonation. Leaves behind a small film in the mouth.
O: A simple but awesome pilsner by an always reliable brewery. There's nothing super extravagant about this beer, but it's pegged down the basics and it's done it well. Personally, I could drink this all day it's so smooth and good. If you're wanting to get into the pilsner style, start here.
