I split a case of this stuff with a co-worker. Bottles show it's good til the first week of August, which is a little disappointing since my store just got this in this week (notes from 7/4/12). That being said, nothing at all is wrong with the age of this brew.
A yellow-gold look with tawny shades. Egg white head slims down while still staying appealing. 4/5
Smells yeasty (like yeast being prepped for bread dough with warm water & sugar). Grassy and lemony in the nose. Salt, light malts. 4/5
Sharp hops cut through to the taste buds real quick with a peppery flavor. Yeast, peppermint spice, earthy hops, burnt brown sugar, bread crust, ginger. Clean malts with the right amount of fermented spiciness. 4.5/5
The Wright Pils is carried by hops, but washes away without heavy and unwelcoming lingering qualities thanks to the sweet and spicy tango. 4/5
Great Lakes pulled this one off with the hops flavor. Great stuff.

Presentation: Nice looking bottle with eye-catching label graphics in the traditional GLBC style. Label gives a nice back story of the beer, ABV info, web info, a bit of brewery info, serving temp recommendation, freshness date(8/17/13). Neck label has GLBC logo and a nice description of the beer. 25th Anniversary Cap.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from this 12oz brown bottle into a 12oz stange glass led to a 3 finger white airy head atop a crystal clear golden yellow beer. Head retention was 4min 10sec before fading to a rocky coating and thin ring that left a nice lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells very floral with a grassy malt aroma. Also has hints of light white grape and a slight floral hop aroma.
Flavor/Taste: Tastes very malty on the front end with nice floral hints leading into a slightly floral bitter hop midpoint turning slightly sweet with a grassy back end that finishes floral and dry. Very good!
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and slightly dry with a crisp carbonation that makes this very refreshing and drinkable.
Overall/Comments: Another really solid brew by GLBC that was well done and well put together. I really enjoyed this beer and how refreshing and sessionable it was. June Seasonal Release. Classified as a Czech Pilsner @ 5.3%. Consumed 6/30/2013.
