COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This authentic amber Irish ale is slow brewed with a blend of three malted barleys and finished with four varieties of hops. Then we dry-hopped in the lager tank to add a spicy note to warm your winter evenings. Expect this beer to be a beautiful copper-red, with a fruity ale body and a spiced hop finish.

Sweet malty nose. The flavor has a nice roasted malt beginning with hints of chocolate that finishes fairly quickly. A subtle sweetnes lingers after the flavor diminishes. Average to slightly above average.

The beer tastes firm and robust at first, but it trails off. There is no finish. It looks amazing though and it pretty flavorful, but brief.

Very nice copper-red color; however, the head is nearly non-existant. Somewhat of a weak aroma (although I admittedly have a cold right now, so this may not be the case). Flavor is very fruity, low in carbonation, with a quick hop ’ping’ at the tail end. Smooth. Outside of the aroma, I was very impressed with this beer; a nice take on an amber ale.

So-so beer from New Glarus. Snowshoe, reddish-brown in colour, had a decent hop aroma. The flavor was malty and dry. A little sour and fruity in the palate. The finish was pleasant and a bit tangy.

ANother huge disappointment form these guys- Red in color; no head; malt mildness in the nose. Some coconut angles in the mouth- YUCK. Sits on the tngue strangely.

I will say this one has gotten better in the last few years, but I still haven’t figured out why make an octoberfest ale?! Good caramel malt. Sure wish they would make Cabin Fever belgian style double again for the winter seasonal!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 It was malty, but I didn’t catch the hops. Smelled better than it tastes

Nothing special here. Loaded with caramel in both the aroma and flavor department. Very smooth and drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 ReRate-thanks to belgianhomebrew for the new sample. I haven't had this one in a while. poors copper hue and very clear. faint aroma of toast malts and spicy sweetness. lots of spice and malt on the palate. not as good as i remember it. flimsy body and mothfeal. not one of new glarus better brews. Nice brown-red color and sweet aroma abundant. Great smooth amber taste with a crisp finish with a slight hoppyness also.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 Almost a five star. Could be the best of the new glarus stock. Has the color of an arizona sunset and a great flavor to follow. ALLS' i can say is put your hands in the air, for wisconsin's best brewer. New Glarus Rocks. This is one bad ass lill swiss town with a great beer. Fruit laced with spice overcomes the mouth upon first swig.
