Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2011
This highly rated beer did not find favor here. Provided to Mr and Mrs Signalwriter by the Jersey Girls, we sampled bottles in Minnesota and Texas - though from the same batch/carton. Bottles pour a Coca-Cola brown with a quite light head. Aroma and flavor are mild and aromatic, and the taste is tart. Dry mouthfeel. Average taste.

A lighter version of a typical craft brown. Nice mild malts. Not too much mouthfeel. Toffee notes in aroma and flavor.

ceason (30) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a hazy reddish-brown with an average white fizzy head. Very mild nutty malt aroma. Taste was nutty. Not great but a decent, enjoyable beer.

maltman53 (429) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle pours root beer color with thin, quickly dissipated head. Sarsaparilla and chicory on the nose, finishes soft with low bitterness. Overall, okay, just a little under carbonated.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Tasted on 1/3/12 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear copper brown with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is lightly nutty with a hint of coffee and a soapy aroma. The flavor is nutty chocolate malt with some green bitterness and a metallic flavor. The body is medium with average carbonation and an average nutty chocolate finish.

Iím a bit bias on this beer. Iím an absolutely huge fan of new glarus. This beer is a bit nutty but a classic smooth new glarus taste iíve come to appreciate. always a treat when i can drink this.

VeinAle (120) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Smells like your standard brown ale. Looks wonderfully brown with a light head on it. Good sweet malt flavor coupled with a slight bitter. Biscuit hits the nose after the swallow. Medium bodied with average carbonation, sits well with me!
