COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

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.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2010
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

bookman10 (648) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2010
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.

cblado (243) - Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color, nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and yeast, flavor is sweet, caramel malt with a doughy finish. Medium palate. Bocks aren’t my favorite style, but this is very drinkable.

bottle. pours a clear dark brown with a great looking off-white head, slowly fading to decent lacing. aroma is grainy malts with some caramel and toffee. taste is a rich malty sweetness without being over the top too sweet. mild to low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. nicely done.

drpimento (2267) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Solid, traditional bock beer. Served with a great, foamy, frothy, sudsy, light tan head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a clear, dark garnet. Aroma is malt, caramel, toffee and just a hint of molasses. Flavor’s the same and has the sweetness perfectly balanced. Body is just what it should be, ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of short to medium length. This is quitessential bock beer. Session.

Reddish-brown pour with light beige head. Aroma was malty and had some sweetness to it. Taste was smooth, well-balanced. A little sweet. Nice lacing.

I’m not sure if this is a new brew from New Glarus, but it’s new to me. Gonna have a sip, ok?.. Extra surprisingly good. This beer will shock you.
