COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This “Nobel-Pilsner” is the creation of our brewmaster. He brought special yeast from Bavaria, combined it with Wisconsin barley and the finest Bavarian and American hops. Then employing traditional brewing methods, this Pilsner is finished with a long cold rest in our cellars. Expect this bier to be creamy and full-bodied with a smooth finish.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, grain, grass, and fruit. Very nice Pilsener.

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!

phaleslu (6295) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2013
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

Very average. I enjoy the offerings from this brewery very much, but this pilsner is pretty run of the mill. Drinkable, but nothing spectacular.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
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.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2013
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.

sthlm (1228) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2013
[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.

dannighe (2) - - JUN 29, 2013 does not count
Overall a nice taste, clean aftertaste that doesn’t stick around long. It’s a little fruitier than I normally like, but generally decent.
