Great Lakes The Wright Pils

12 oz single – many thanks go out to Micah for the chance to crack this one. Only from the brewery? Not sure, but that’s what I remember hearing.
Typical Pils appearance with a light golden body and a wispy head. the head lacks much presence for me.
The nose and tastes are in the right ballpark, but a re a little too sweet for my liking when I consider the style. I like my Pils to have a really strong Noble/Saaz bite especially in the finish, and although this beer delivers some of that, it doesn’t really come through strong., there are quite a few residual sugars there which conflict a little with the bitterness that I am seeking.
Simple and drinkable with a little hop, soapy character which is good, but the beer lacks in in your face bitter punch in the finish and ultimately just feels too sweet for me. I need more soap and a lot more brutality in the ending.
Not bad, but a long way from the best GL brew.
