Great Lakes The Wright Pils from Great Lakes Brewing Co. , my 1st Czech pilsner. As a 4th generation Slovak, this is kind of a big moment for me. I am proud of my Bohemian heritage and chose to honor it with a brew crafted(no pun intended) in my home state. How fitting. Poured from the bottle into a glass, the Wright Pils has half finger head with loose, flowing lacing. Body is yellow with mild carbonation.
Smells floral,slightly citrusy(yes I know its not a real word). A faint welcome of grains as well. This just generates images of summer in my head!
The initial taste is, you guessed it, slightly floral and citursy. A slightly bitter aftertase with a dry finish. Just as promised. So THIS is what my great great great grandparents unwound with. This is about to be my go-to summer brew, above all.
Mouthfeel gets a high performance 4.25 . Dry, yes; entirely literal, no. I mean, this would make my worries melt away on a humid- as-all- fuck 85+ degree day in the Ohio summers. This brew makes me all the more proud of my ancestral heritage. You bet your bottom dollar I will buy this brew again.
