12 oz bottle. Yellow-ish gold with a foamy head that didnt last long enough for me to get to the taste. Not that Iím a big fan of pilseners but this doesnt have as much corn taste as the others. Retiring this beer is not the end of the world.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with footbalm, thanks Eric!) Not a very attractive beer, being that the white "head" barely covers the beer for just an instant before quickly fading to a thin ring. The hazy, light golden color is nice, but there also isnít much in the way of carbonation bubbles. And Iím not trying to pile on, but the nose isnít very aromatic either; it smells vaguely grainy with a slight amount of sweet honey. At least thereís some flavor to this beer, but again, itís just not impressing me. A cheap-tasting honey-like sweetness seems to be the most prevalent flavor, which isnít what Iím looking for in a pilsener, or actually any beer for that matter. Otherwise, itís just generically grainy and lightly bitter, but not hoppy in any real way. And I swear thereís a slight hint of chocolate in this. Maybe thatís why the label is brown? Body is light-medium, and the carbonation is a bit elevated, so itís not the most pleasant mouthfeel. Overall, this "nobel" pilsener is just an average, unmemorable beer that tastes cheaply sweet, and I guess Iíve come to expect better from New Glarus.

From bottle : Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that dies fast. Very carbonated. Aroma is very grassy with sugar. Taste is sweet, with the grass and some yeast and bread. Thin mouthfeel, and not a very smooth feel, a little tart. Not much aftertaste. It is ok for a pilsner.

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.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice golden color with a white head. Bubbles are weak and flacid. Gorgeous white bread aromas almost sweet like you could eat it. Sweet and extreamly boring on the palate. If you are looking for a dry pilsner this will frustrate you. Thereís no zip or zang at all. Itís more pale lager-dormunteresque than a pilsner. The finish is completely unacceptable and dissapears.

Maybe itís cuz I just woke up, aight, but I have nothing positive to say about this one. Swing and a miss by New Glarus far as Iím concerned.

Bottle from ZindeHey, thanks. Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of noble hops, tortilla chips and corn. Did someone sneak a miller in this bottle? Taste of malt, mild floral hops, faint honey and lemon, blah city. Finishes up kind of unpleasant.
