COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since 1516 Brewers have led the purity revolution. They mandated only four natural ingredients be used to brew beer. This Reinheistgebot law was the first ever food purity regulation and New Glarus Brewmaster Dan Carey has consistently respected our palates by employing yeast, water, barley and hops to explore a wide spectrum of flavor. Today Dan pushes the purity envelope by using Organic Hallertau Hops from Germany with Wisconsin organically malted barley to create a complex and assertively hoppy golden ale. This beer is even natrually carbonated, 100% bottle fermented means you can expect a flavor celebration to dance cleanly across your palate. Raise your glass and toast to Wisconsinís common sense Revolution.

They mandated only four natural ingredients be used to brew beer...New Glarus did a great job, but this is the low of the variety pack I bought. No taste, no flavor, no zip, no burn, boring. Itís like there were left overs..."letís brew a beer, and sell it as organic. Some hippie will buy it. " New Glarus does so much better than this one. Out of all the excellent beers they brew...pass on this one.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JUL 15, 2010
12oz bottle.
Pours a clear straw gold with a weak fizzy head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity with notes of pear and bready grain. Flavor is assertively crisp with clean bitter hops and fruity notes of pear, tart apple, and a dash of honey. Medium-bodied, grainy finish with a lingering honey sweetness. For lack of a better description, tastes like a high-quality ho-hum beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle at Patioís 40th bday. Pours amber with a slight haze and a white head. Aroma of pale malts and leafy hops. Nice earthy mouthfeel and carbonation, on the lighter side of medium bodied. Flavor of pale malts, and spicy european hops, but with a tamed bitterness level. Semi dry finish. Pretty solid pale here.

Grainy aroma before a pleasantly sweet hit on the palate. Beer is an easy sipping beer with a nice malty finish, with just a hint of grain.

popery (1434) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Itís a light amber liquid with a dissipating white head that leaves moderate lacing. An odd grassiness in the smell and taste. The malt isnít particularly clean. A bit bland with some odd hop flavors. Could be more refreshing. Not terrible, but this beer hasnít won me over to the possibilities of organic beer.

Pours up orange with a kinda thin head. Not too much aroma, but a pretty rough flavor. Not too harsh, though.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Appearance: Pours a straw wheat color but with a decent amount of orange sunburst in the body. The crown is a nice 1.5 finger off white rocky creamy one. Good retention and loads of lace. Smell: Loads of wheat, a touch of herbal grassy hallertau hops, and a dash of pale malt. Taste: Not extremely flavorful. A touch of hop presence, grain, pale bready malt....more pilsner like to me than pale ale like. Mouthfeel: Fairly crisp but a touch thin. Drinkability: Sessionable Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-04-2009

The Dan Journal #347. Tasted 5/3/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered and lively with a bright orange, golden hue. Layer of white head. Aromas of cereal grains and a touch citrus. Medium bodied with a bright effervescence and subtle estery notes. Smooth and sessionable!
