I ordered a Lorelei at the brewery. The bartender brought over what appeared to be Cuyahoga River water in a pint glass. At about 5% ABV, it probably has less alcohol than a glass of Cuyahoga River water.

Strong scent of roasted malts. The roasted malt flavor came through in the taste, but a slight sweetness created a caramel effect. Nonetheless, it was light and refreshing. Smooth and moderately carbonated. A great beer for a sunny day on the patio in Ohio City.

Had this on tap at the brewery during happy hour not too long ago. This beer is one of their on-tap only "pub exclusives". Served to me in a standard pint glass. This beer is a cloudy, medium brown gold color. Head was about an inch thick when drawn from the tap. Settled to a thin surface layer and ring lining the inside of the glass. Good lacing here. Sweet, roasted, wheat, and malty aromas filled my nostrils upon taking a whiff, along with a bit of caramel or maybe vanilla. Tastewise this beer is quite malty and sweet upfront. I detected a bit of a tart flavor too, just a hint. This is followed by some wheat and is rounded out with some floral hop bitterness. Very nice balance of flavors here and quite good indeed! This beer has a crisp and smooth mouthfeel with a full body and moderate to heavy carbonation. Very easy to drink in the way great beer should be! Another winner from Great Lakes!

Just had this the other night at the brewery and this review is based off my notes. This is a pub exclusive that I did not think was available until I got to the brewpub. The beer was served to me in a pint glass with a hazy golden body and a two inch white head that didn't leave any lacing. The aroma had hints of yeast and malts. The taste was great, with a lot of flavor, the sweet malts hit you upfront but mellow out to some hop bitterness. The beer had medium carbonation with a noticeable amount of carbonation but it was crisp and was very easy to drink. Overall its another solid offering from Great Lakes and I'm glad that I got the chance to try it.
