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.

GregClow (2893) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle via trade with rudolf. Nice hazy golden-orange with a large white head. Love the aroma - citrus and pineapple, some honey and grape must. Medium bodied. Flavour is not quite up the standard of the fantastic aroma, but still pretty nice, with a good balance and slightly toffeeish malt and orange & grapefruit hops. Easy to drink, and easy to enjoy.

Bottle - Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. The smell is the best part of this beer -- sweet and fruity, with honey, grapes, and wheat. The taste is kind of weird -- the first couple sips were terrible, it mellowed out in the middle, and I poured the end of the beer into my wifeís glass and moved on to something else. It tastes pretty smooth, with a mild malt and grain flavor, but thereís really not much else. Stale-tasting hops dominate the finish, and kind of weight the beer down with blahness. Itís medium-bodied, but a little too much carbonation dominates. I wanted to try it just because itís New Glarus, but pretty mediocre overall.

Very light brown pour with a white head. Aroma of light malt, a little sweetness. Taste is mellow with a nice malty aftertaste. Very tasty beer, Well balanced and refreshing. Better than I thought, I almost decided to not buy it.

Bottle via trade. This one wasnít bad, but really didnít excite me much. Cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is bready malt and grain, maybe a little yeast. Flavor is pale malt, grain, wheat, yeast, and earth/grass. Palate fairly light and crisp. Very drinkable, but not much to it.

12 oz bottle sampled on the Hard Hat Tour (New Glarus, WI). Pours a heavily hazed golden hue with a touch of amber, offwhite decent head that dies to a decent film, laces well enough. Aromas are lighter, light floral and citrus compliment pale malt sweetness, crisp. Flavors are light yet full, pale malts, a touch of flaked wheat? Crisp malt body, light citrus but more floral hop. Finish mellow pale sweetness, bread, light floral and bitter finish. This is ok, a bit mellow for my APA tastes.
