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.

12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy orange with lots of floaties and a nice off-white head. The aroma is lemony hops and lightly toasted bread. The flavor is decently hoppy with lemongrass and pepper qualities. Yeasty and bready malt qualities are the base. The finish is mild earthy bitterness. Not bad.

Originally reviewed: 12/19/08. Pours a deep cloudy goldish orange with a large foamy head on top. This retains well and leaves excellent lacing. Smells of malty grains that were dipped in hop juice. Smells good. I was excited to try this as itís one of my favorite styles and one of my favorite breweries, but the taste on this one fell a bit short. Tastes of minute corn mixed with raisins; hop bitterness is not balanced as I would like it, and it finishes a tad sour. New Glarus missed the mark on this organic APA.

Completely ordinary and boring. Not a bad APA, but not a good one either. I grabbed 1 6 pack and gave 4 bottles away to a buddy that liked it more than I. There just isnít a whole lot going on here.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice beigh head. Aroma was grainy and grassy with floral hops. Flavor was pale malts, grains, floral and had a hint of grapefruit.

Pours mid amber with notes of malt and very light hops. The medium bodied beers shows nuanced hit of both hops and malt grain.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow grain color with a slight white head, a bit of retention, and not too much lacing. The nose is slight grain and some very faint floral hops. Taste is a bit grainy with a bit of a light, creamy texture. Somewhat low carbonation. Drinkability is a bit high as this is nice and light without too much going on.

The beer pours a medium honey gold with a very light head that disappears quickly. The aroma is light and plain, it smells like a typical macro american beer. It has a little swettness to it. The taste is very light, you can hardly taste anything. Its super watery in feel. This beer is disappointing overall.

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

Bottle ; Pour is a slightly cloudy golden with a modest white head that eventually just rims the glass. Floral Hallertau hops come through on the nose but they are not big flavors. There is a bitterness here, and a bit of earthiness or mineral feel in this brew. I disagree that this is a complex brew. Perhaps given the circumstances it would be considered complex & flavorful, but I find it to be an enjoying yet simple american pale take on a german hop profile.

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.
