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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall a nice taste, clean aftertaste that doesn’t stick around long. It’s a little fruitier than I normally like, but generally decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Corn/barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Sweet corny barley malt and had flavor. Medium body. Drinkable but a disappointment - more like a mediocre pale lager.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a rich golden orange with lots of bubbles and a good foam. Aroma is very light, just getting a little bit of grain, corn, and some alcohol. The softness of the beer hits me right away, a softness of grains and mild mandarin orange sweetness. Finish is super clean, with light malt sweetness again at the end. Well made, could put a few of these down.

Nice aromatics out of the gate....nice bready sweet malt aroma and spicy hops also. Deep yellow in color with nice thick white head. Nice rich malty sweetness up front, balanced with slightly bitter and spice hop flavor. Crisp, not so dry...finishes on the sweet side. Refreshing.
