2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very rich, slightly glowing copper coloured body with a bit of an orange and honey tint and a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light biscuity malts, some citrus, a bit of caster sugar, some cardboardie funk and some pale yeast. Light-bodied; Strong biscuity flavours with lighter and less assertive malt coupled with some mellow fruits and grain flavour and a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste shows some grass, caster sugar, funk and a bit of stale malt - nothing too special here. Overall, if you pulled off this label, it would be decent at best, with a lot of mundane flavours, nothing exciting and no real profiles to sample, so sadly, I was disappointed, given the pedigree and the typically good ’classic’ beers from the brewery, but this wasn’t one of them. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Edelweiss Shop in Verona, Wisconsin (of course) on 24-September-2016 for US$3,00 by my mom - thanks Mom for bringing another NG beer back from Wisconsin, even though it wasn’t the bes, sampled at home in Washington on 11-October-2016.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very refreshing and well balanced pilsner. Slight sweetness from the malts, toast, light hops. Feel was adequate for the style. Though delicate and complex, it wet down fast. Nice n fresh too. Via heybeerman."

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle] Bright golden pour with a rocky head typical of the style. Sweet grain, grass and light perfume in the aroma. Flavor notes of more grains, cracker, light citrus and mild hop bitterness. Great palate/mouthfeel for the style. Not sure what the availability of this beer typically is, but as of 4/30 the Woodman’s in Kenosha had plenty of it.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Realistically, has to be one of the best pilseners I’ve had. Sweet grain, a bit of carbonation, slightly syrupy on the palate. Slight fruit. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a big frothy three fingers of white foam. The nose is very bready, touch of honeyed sweetness and traces of grassy spice. Mouthfeel is crisp, a touch thin but true to style... could use a touch more carbonation...the flavors are very focused doughy bread with a some hints of bitterness. Easy drinker.

Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is grainy with a hint of citrus. Creamy texture with a little citrus from the hops coming through and some corn bitterness in the aftertaste. Another solid offering from New Glarus.
