Light red color. Pretty strong fruity malty smell. Nice light crisp flavor. Great balance of malt and hops. Just a touch of fruityness. Very smooth and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fruity yeasty malty aroma. Cloudy light orange amber with a thin white quickly fading head. Earthy. Bready. Soft bitter finish. Not bad. Kind of a standard Red ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a light beige head of foam. Good lacing and retention. The aroma is malty sweet with just a touch of spice. Maybe there’s a rye addition. The taste is mostly sweet and crackery. Light body with medium carbonation.

Twelve ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit. This pours clear amber and and has a small beige layer of foam. A nice aroma that is full of malts and more delicate fruit. Some dry hop notes brings a bit of spiciness to the flavor. The Irish malts are close to genuine and the fruit is evident. A little earth and toffee. This drinks a lot like an English Bitter. Pleasant.

Sweet caramel notes. Hops are in the background and provide an outstanding balance. This ale would sing with almost comfort food and is a great seasonal offering.

Great copper pour. Light malty flavor on the front of the tongue. Not as flavorful as other New Glarus options, but good & easy to drink.

A solid offering from NG again. Although probably my least favorite of all of their beers I have had. Bottle pours clear amber brown with medium white head. Taste very hoppy kind of overpowering.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Plain tasting ale with good balance and mouthfeel. More malt than hop. Good clear,crisp, amber color pour. This is a normal red ale with nothing special. I believe a better name should just be New Glarus Red Ale.
