DATE TASTED: November 30, 2013... GLASSWARE: standard pilsner...OCCASION: Game PSU's finale a memorable one--well done, boys!... APPEARANCE: slight amber golden body that sports methodical bubbles; white two-finger head settles to a thin splash; zero lacing as the glass drains--not encouraging... AROMA: baker's dough wafts pleasantly; some floral, fruity esters round out an otherwise nondescript presence... PALATE: smooth, bubbly and softly bodied for a lager--sessionable for sure, yet effeminate...TASTE: apple, pear and thin malts make for a lager with some flavor; rather underwhelming, considering its fellow beers in the mixpack...OVERALL: high expectations unmet, but perhaps not all brews from Lakefront will be flagship offerings...not a fitting celebratory glass for such a stunning upset as Penn State served Wisconsin...

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light medium gold with very little foam. Active bubbles at first. Straw taste, light lemon. Same as the nose. Mild hop. Even keeled, light bitter throughout. Grain-y. Citrus in the background. Nice smooth pils.

Wildly different from other Pils, more body, more odd flavors, I opened an IPA for my family and this for me wanting a light brew, and for a moment, I didnt know what I was drinking. But then, malty, bready, crackerly brew got to me and I enjoyed it. 100% agree w reviewer who said "turn it into a BLONDE ALE", that's more what it is.

A - Pours a slight hazed, golden/yellow color with a foamy, two-finger white head. No lacing.

S - Subtle, not much here, but smells of grains and sweet floral notes.

T - It tasted fairly sweet, lots of bread. Was very good with cheese and mozzarella tomatoes with basil. Would be good with salad and as a pre-dinner beer, which was the case tonight. Included light grassy hops that made the finish nice.

M -Not right for a pils, more medium weight body. But I liked it, just change the style please.

O - I'd drink another. Might want to try. Reviewers overly ding this beer for being off-style, but it's a nice middle of the road blonde ale with an appetizing finish.

It's original, not cliché.

Bottle sent to me by BeerFMAndy. Thanks Andy!

Served in a DC Brau tulip because I'm awesome.

A: Poured an orange-tangerine color, pretty clear, and with a soft 1/2 finger white head.

S: 1/2 malt, 1/2 hop. This was played down the middle. I wish there was more Pizazz here.

T: Nice overall flavor, good citrus component, clean finish.

M: Bubbly enough, mildly splotchy on the glass, and gulpable enough.

O: I see Lakerfront entries in the DC area from time to time but have never seen this one. Good stuff.

Pours a light and cloudy straw with a finger of head that dissipated quickly. Surprisingly, I am getting a hint of corn on the nose – that can never be good. The taste is like practically every other pilsner I’ve ever drank, which means it’s passable considering the limitations of this style but pretty bland in general. There is a touch of malt sweetness on the finish followed by a semi-dry note from the hops.

Bottle poured into pilsner, two finger off-white head, poor retention, and pale gold in color

Mouthfeel was thick and slightly rough

Smell: grain, barley, wheat, and hay

Taste: Biscuits, hops, rice, and noble hops at the finish. Overall, this is a good beer. However, I highly doubt I would buy a six pack. But, I will have to say that I'm excited to try this brewery!
