3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow. Thin white head with some delicate lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent; maybe some grassy notes. Flavor is light bready malts balanced well with hops. Not too bitter or overpowering. Well carbonated with a crisp spicy finish.

not really to my liking. Pale yellow without any real lasting head. no real flavor to speak of except for an odd aftertaste that I can really put my finger on

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. One of the better pilsners I’ve had. Very smooth and drinkable. Good summer brew. A touch more robust than most pilsners.

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

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is balls to the wall pilsner; if you can’t take it than switcth to smirnoff ice! Bitter and full flavored session pils; acidity, hops, hops, malt, hops, and refreshment. A great beer for the summer. This is Wisconsin baby and you bettta recognize game.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells friuty and the head on this tap beer is very frothy. Tastes very bold and the hops are nice. The friutness adds to the complexity of this beer. Had at the Hoover Ave Ale House.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Bottle. A seasonal brew. This is my favorite of the New Glarus beers. It is a decent pilsener, but the color is too dark due to the use of caramel malts which do not belong here and the aroma and flavor of hops is too strong. This is not an "old world style pilsner" as it says in the deScription, rather an American micro-pils, along the lines of Samuel Adam´s nobel pils. The hops taste "green" because of dry hopping which you would never find in a German pils. New Glarus has all the tools to make really great beer, but never gets there.
