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 Wisconsin’s common sense Revolution.

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle... Mostly clear, golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates in a flash. The nose offers lots of toffee and biscuit malts with lesser notes of perspiration and spicy hops. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. Plenty of toffee sweetness overpowers the initial, snappy hop bite. Finishes honey-sweet.

JoeMcPhee (8569) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
Cloudy deep glden-yellow beer. Aroma is light and grainy. There is a very nice fresh soft maltiness. the hops are lightly fruity with a soft fresh sweet malt backbone. Low to moderate bitterness. Softly herbal with a bit of light tartness on the back. It’s kind of non-descript. Not bad, but not all that good either.

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2011
12 oz bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a hazy golden/peach color. The head is white, thin, quickly dissipating, and leaves no lacing. The smell is almost nonexistent but it is grassy, earthy and malty. The taste is slightly metallic, very malty, almost no hops, like any other stereotypical apas out there. The new one, Moon Man is a hoppier version of this. NG can do better than this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-24-2010 21:07:57

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear orangey-golden with a short-lived cap of loose white head.. didn’t seem very active at all. The aroma picked up oranges, dried barley, and some floral hoppage.. drier, and not a whole lot going on.. warmth brought out some nice bready notes. The flavor had sweet caramel and barley at the core with interlaced pear and tangerine notes.. mild, but complimentary floral bitterness.. tasty. Lighter-bodied and crisp on the palate, with excellent balance. Quite drinkable.
