Enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. 38 IBU and 5.4% abv. Golden and lacey. A mild bitterness, neutral aroma, and so-so drinkability. Carbonation is felt too much as minerals in water however. Served at the right termperature, as their beer generally are.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the Madison brewpub.

Another entry in my pre-interview extravaganza. It pours a clear pale golden straw topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose is faint, with only trickles of wheat and flowers coming out of the oblivion. The taste holds notes of corn, wheat, light greens, and some puffed rice. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, not too much difference between this and the German-style pils, but that's not all bad, as both are pretty good.

From a growler purchased at the Rendezvous in Montello, WI. The Rendezvous is combination canoe outfitter, fishing goods, café & now beer seller. They have four Great Dane beers on tap. Growlers are reasonably priced and every 6th one is free.

Poured into a pint glass, the beer is a hazy straw with a thick bone white head and decent lacing.

The nose is grainy with some perfume like hops.

The taste starts sweet and is of grains, some caramel, crackers and a light bit of bitterness at the finish. This is not the crisp pilsners that I love, but it does have a unique take on the style.

The mouth has midlevel heft with a trace of finishing dryness.

This was an easy growler to finish off. I drank some doing some yard work and then some more fishing off the pier.

Glad to see that I can get growlers a ¼ of mile from my cabin on Buffalo Lake!
