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.

Draft on tap at Sugar Maple (Milwaukee, WI). First stop in, first time trying a re-released New Glarus brew. Exciting. Pours a rich glowing fiery golden orange hue, a bit darker, some mellow haze, striking golden orange glow. A cakey offwhite creamy head sits atop, laces well and sticks around. Mellow inviting carbonation flashes up the glass. Aromas provide bready malts, straw, and grass. Clean cereal sweetness, earthy dry hops, kisses of mellow yeast and spicy earthy hops. Simple yet fresh, just a bit of sweetness, more dry and earthy with a bit of spice. Initial is lighter end of the fold, bready malts, apple touches of fruit. A bit of cereal grain, dry florals, bit of lemon rind. Middle is a touch tart and dry, apple and lemon. The backend is where that crisp bready malt, cereal grainy element strike. Fresh crusty bread, clean earthy hop bitterness provides a strike. A lot of fruit for me, touches of spiciness and florals, grass as we finish up. Some popcorn. The front end and appearance won me a bit, clean yet enjoyable aroma. The beer itself is a bit fruity and sweet. Would provide a more dry, crisp backend and finish. Overall, was a bit disappointed with the path this one led down. I can see why it’s a solid beer and that there is a market for that fruity slant. But it’s just not what I’m looking for. Ok. Prefer to stick with a more dry, crisp Pils sans that fruity feel.

Bottle from Casanovas, super light golden straw color, no head. Aroma of wheat, grain and a little bit of sweet lemon. Taste is just some grain, crackers, light and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (1245) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle from Downer Wine & Spirits Pours a very clear golden yellow with a white head. Aroma has sweet hoppy flowers, bread dough and lemons. Taste is of crisp sweet pale malts, straw, lemons and perhaps some wheat. Light and clean. Finishes sweetly tangy. Really hit the style solidly, sadly not a fan of that style.

pepsican (1444) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Gold pour with a nice head. Aroma of dough, grass, cereal, lime zest and a bit of graham cracker. Not bad. Flavor is light, not quite as hop forward as you’d expect from an american brewery, and I’m happy I can say that. Clean finish, very mild bitterness with a touch of sweetness to round it out.

Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is grainy. Creamy texture, lots of pilsner taste with a little citrus from the hops coming through and some corn bitterness in the aftertase. Pretty good pils.

naivepegasus (337) - USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a clear yellow with a twinge of orange with about a half a finger of rapidly dissipating stark white head. Sweetgrass in the nose. A pretty crisp taste, ends with a sweet lemony aftertaste. It’s refreshing- I’m not a huge pilsner fan, but this is pretty good.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2013
Clear, gold to light amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white head. Aroma of cereal, toast, light citrus, sweet grass and floral hops. Flavor is cereal, toasted granola, spicy, lightly acidic lemony citrus and floral hops. Light body with a creamy to neutral entry, dry middle, moderate strength, blanketing carbonaiton and off dry, fairly crisp finish. This is one of those beers that I think better of when I sit down and analyze the experience. Pretty good overall, it seems to be better at a higher temperature than most Pilseners, I really liked it around 50F+, whereas I tend to enjoy most Pilseners at ~40F
