Bottle @ Bradís house Minneapolis. Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Pours a fairly herbal, grassy, moderately floral hoppy, a touch fruity aroma. Somewhat bitter, earthy hoppy, moderately floral, straw flavor with a moderately dry finish. Not too hard to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from single 12oz bottle picked up from the brewery a couple of days ago, pours a clear bright yellow with a fizzy white head, aroma is of slight hops with more bread and crackers, the flavor is crisp with a pretty good kick of hops in the finish, not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: boozy grain and bread crust, the ubiquitous brewery smell; Appearance: donít all pilsners look great and refreshing? Nice medium-thick head on pour, and a crisp, clear, bubbly yellow; Taste: a lot more hops than you can pick out in the aromatic boquet, something reminiscent of clover/grass; Palate: very refreshing and drinkable, maybe a little bit heavier than most pilsners, subtle sweetness lingers on the palate; Overall: a good pilsner, but, even though Iíve given it a high score, I probably wonít be able to remember very much about it once Iím through the 6-pack

Lighter beers rarely leave me wanting more but this one did. The key grass and corn flavors are there but thereís actually some malty substance to this that sets it apart from lesser specimens.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Breeze Thru Wine & Spirits in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at home on a Thursday night while doing some work. Appearance is a pale, clear yellow with a very thin white head that slightly rims around the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet, hay, yeast, not bad. Taste is crisp and clean, not unlike other New Glarus brews. Itís one of my least favorite styles, and New Glarus does a decent job with it, but Iíd still prefer other NG brews over this one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden color with a big fluffy white head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is herbal and hoppy with some light crisp malt. Reminds me a bit of weedwacking in the best possible way.
The flavor is very herbal, very hoppy, clean and well defined malt character with some mild honey and a good crispness, just a mild doughy sweetness shows through. The beer has a pretty high bitterness level for a "typical" pilsner.
I love beers like this one; itís a pity I didnít buy a case.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a big foamy white head. Nose is floral hopping, light perfume, honey malt, and light, smooth graininess. Real smooth taste, grain, light herbal/floral hops, with a light honeyed yeast. Light and creamy in the mouth. I hope Dan Carey is wrong and this does sell, because I want to drink this stuff year round.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from the Hilltop Brewery (New Glarus, WI). Glad to see this back around as the last time it was out, I was fresher into beer. Pours a richer golden hue, just a kiss of haze, darker golden pour stark glow throughout is pretty. Well carbonted with a cakey loose offwhite head, stays as a small layer, laces small. Lively carbonated, good colors. Aromas are a bit spicy, mellow dry straw and bready malts, grainy dryness, some mellow earthy hops are moderate in strength. Spicy earthy hops give some nice peppery play on the nose. Florals, grass, gentle Pils malts and yeast. Initial is light bodied, clean and dry up front, mellow bready and straw flavors, some crackers, gentle cereal malts. Crisp, clean with touches of fruit as we move into the middle. Gentle apple, a touch of lemon, as the backend cleans up for. Decent to medium dryness, earthy hops. Grass, gentle yet inviting spicy earthy hops into the backend. Nice dryness, crisp cereal and clean qualities. Light overall, quite a summer drinker with some ok hop character, spice, clean malt profile. This beer has "Drewbeerme" written all over it. Really nice fresh summer drinker, clean and light. Pretty glow, lively carbonation and a head that really lingers. Nice.
