Great Lakes spin on a Czech Pils. Light in color and flavor. Smell is a bit light, but the floral hops do come out a bit. The taste has hints of Great Lakes malt backbone, but not that much. Honestly, its just very light in every way. Flashes of floral hops do show up in the taste, but its nothing all that fancy. Not my favorite GL seasonal.

A- gold with 1/4 inch white head.No lacing

S-Grains

T-Grains

M-medium bodied

O- Overall I was not impressed and I was truly excited to try this one too. There is a graininess to all the GL lagers that is odd to me. I'll stick to Victory for my lagers or the Germans. Sad because I love Great Lakes for most other things.

Poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass, the beer was urine sample yellow. Normally, colors this bright are reserved for kids' drinks. A generous white head was a sign of powerful carbonation, which was definitely evident in the mouthfeel. A grassy aroma was present, as expected for a pilsner. In the initial taste, one gets grass, sour hay, and a mildly tart grain taste. The mild sourness continues into the aftertaste, which moves in quickly because of the carbonation. I normally skip pilsners, and now I remember why. This is a pilsner, so it is Great Lakes' attempt at a beer for non-craft drinkers. For craft beer drinkers, it tastes a little more like a high end macro-brew.
