3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep, clear gold with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was nice mix of malts and slightly sweet and fruity hops. Taste was malty up front with a moderate hop finish. Mouth was good. Overall, a fairly decent pilsner although I did not think the hops were as predominant as they could have been.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale orange - I was surprised at the amount of color in this one. Medium off-white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grain, floral notes, hay, grass. Flavor has a sharp bite to it, grass, grain, a touch of zesty bitterness. Not much sweetness. Light body, tons of carbonation. Pretty damn good.... for a Pilsener. Probably the best I have had that does not come from.... Ummmmm... well France. Check my ratings if you don’t believe me!

12 oz. bottle thanks to a friend’s trip to the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head that settles into a film and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malty; plenty of pils malts, dough, straw, and cracker. A little grass. The flavor has pils and biscuity malts, slightly sweetened cereal, light melon fruit, grass, and straw. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, malty mouthfeel. Holy smokes. This is fantastic.

12oz bottle courtesy of MadBeerBaron! I read the description on the bottle and after seeing them say the body should be full and creamy I had to dock them a few points, still a tasty pils with good clean finish

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very average. I enjoy the offerings from this brewery very much, but this pilsner is pretty run of the mill. Drinkable, but nothing spectacular.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold with visible rising carbonation. A top sits a very small tight cap of white.
Aroma: Bread dough, grain, honey like malt and herbal hops.
Taste: Honey, grassy and spicy herbal hops, toasty malt. Finishes with clean bitterness and a slight twang.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation. Full bodied.
Overall: I’m sure I sound like a broken record by now, but I don’t care. New Glarus knocks every damn craft lager they make out of the park. When you make a beer around 5%, it’s very hard to hide flaws. No sweet corn, no twang, no cooked vegetables. Just clean perfection.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice clear golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy, crisp, clean and smooth. Some good hop character. Nice noble hop aroma. Grassy, clean. Really good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is pretty simple--mainly just clover honey. Taste is similarly simple. Malt-driven rounded sweetness up front, balanced with adequate bitterness. The sweetness fades in the finish but crackery malt shows up. I would have liked the cracker to have been amped up a little. Fairly thin mouthfeel, finish length is average. Overall, I love a good pils and I love New Glarus, but this did not quite come together as I had hoped it would. Not to say this is a bad or flawed beer...it just failed to really impress me.

Overall a nice taste, clean aftertaste that doesn’t stick around long. It’s a little fruitier than I normally like, but generally decent.
