Great Lakes The Wright Pils brewed by Great Lakes Brewing Co. with an ABV of 5.3%. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a small white head. The Wright Pils is a filtered brew you can see right thought it. The smell is nice and clean with some grains. The tastes is nice and crisp with a clean refreshing finish. The Wright Pils is a nice balance brew there is nothing overpowering in this brew. Mouthfeel is nice this brew goes down smooth. Over all I'm giving this brew a 3.75 out of 5.
I would buy this brew again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bright and sunny yellow colored beer.
White head.
Delicate lacing left behind on the sides of my glass.
Good looking beer.

The aroma is mild. Grassy, some grains.
Ok smell.

Sweet at first, thin malts, some floral hop bitterness and finishes dry.

Mouthfeel is awesome. On the light side of medium. Crisp, refreshing.
Watery enough to be refreshing, but not too watery to be weak or bland.

Great Lakes always seems to have a slightly higher ABV than comparable beers of the same style.

Overall, A Great Pils.
Only downside is this beer is a little pricey,
