Great Lakes Turntable Pils

What the brewers say

“Flip that record and wax nostalgic about Ohio’s deep-cut music legacy with our refreshing Pilsner. Consider this our reissue of a classic style. The A-side? Earthy, fresh hops aromas. The B-side? A smooth, balanced malt groove.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Overall quite simple, subtle, and clean. Some Continental malt notes, slight grassy character. Fruity floral, slightly perfumy, subtle sweet, spicy, and peppery hops aromas. Minimally present biscuit and bready malt.”

Flavor: “Slightly pine-like and resinous hops flavors that become more perfumy and herbaceous as they linger. A slight ‘papery’ or cardboard-like flavor that isn’t quite oxidization. Subtle sweet malt flavors or sweet bread and biscuit. Finishes fairly dry and lightly bitter. A very subtle metallic characteristic on the finish.”

Overall: “Fairly well-balanced classic-style beer. A few metallic and soapy notes took away from an otherwise solid and easy-drinking beer.”
