1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy blutt59. Dark brown orange color with a bubbly head. Very faint aroma, not much at all. Light malt and a bit of roast. Flavor is dry, watery and lightly malty. This is disappointing for New Glarus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent chestnut brown, beige ring for a thin frothy head. Dusty grain and pumpernickel, brown sugar nose and a bit of paper. Flavor is sweet, crisp grain husk, lightly refreshing carbonation, raisin, and pepper in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a browner ice tea with a foamy head, lowly carbonated. Aroma is an old beer depot; some caramelness, some banana, some bubblegum, some earthy malt. Taste is caramelly malt without any sweetness, banana. Somewhere in the mix between a brown and a bock; more fruity than a brown but without the sweetness of a bock, especially a dunkler. I know uff-da, and sir, you are no uff-da.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a near clear dark purple/plum with sticky white head lacing. Nose has a little fuesel alcohol and a fake sweetness - like that of a grape popsicle. Flavor is malty and a bit nutty. Big carbonation and chew body. Nothing really wrong here, but not one of my faves from NG.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Always happy to try a new New Glarus brew. Pours a nice reddish-brown with hardly any head. Nose of light syrupy sweetness and light roastiness. Roast comes through more in the flavor. Very light and tasty.

Clear brown with a thick off-white head. Good malt aroma. Wonderful malt flavor, the sweetness lingers, not cloying. medium body. A Wisconsin "Not Bad"

Pours a cooper red with a nice sized light tan head. Nose is caramel and malt. Nice and creamy on the palate , the flavor is is rich with malt and caramel. No bitterness on the finish. Pairs well with roast beef on rye with chips and a pickle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle; pours dark roasty brown and clear with trace light tan head; dry chocolate, ashy malt, light orange too; drinks very dry with a faint sweet, almost roasty note; crisp finish and lagery sweetness; pretty bland and boring to me; fairly thin and flavorless for a New Glarus brew

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice chocolate-brown color with mid-sized, creamy head that dissipates rather rapidly. Some caramel and nut flavors present. Not a bad beer, but not one of New Glarus’ best.
