Look: pours a clear yellow. White head that fades extremely quickly. Thick lacing hangs on the side of the glass.
Smell: very malt heavy. Sweet smell. Almost a grain or corn odor. Not very strong smells coming from this beer.
Taste: heavy on the malt. Hints of lemon peel. Slight sweet malt flavor.
Feel: very light on the palate. Good carbonation.
Overall: a craft version of a macro. Not very complex. Very refreshing.
First drank: home June 28, 2014

IF YOU LIKE OVERPRICED BUD LIGHT YOU HAVE YOUR BEER HERE. ITíS WAY TOO WATERY AND DOES NOT HAVE A FULL FLAVOR. THE BOTTLE I HAD WAS KIND OF SKUNKY, AND I DO NOT SEE THE HUGE FUSS OVER THIS BEER. NEW GLARUS HAS BETTER BEERS THAN SPOTTED COW

A super up Miller or Bud Light! I do like the fruity hints, but that is about it. This was my first New Glarus beer and I have to say that I am not too overly impressed, glad I have Belgian Red and Serendipity to try!

Nice grassy cream ale. Golden hazy pour. Aroma of sweet malts, corn, and slight Belgian funk. Taste has a general fruitiness and grassiness. Nice and smooth.

Reviewed from notes. I once received a six pack of this and had this on tap when I was in Wisconsin last Summer. Here are my findings.
Its a cream ale therefore it goes in a pint glass.
The appearance was a transparent yellow color with carbonation seen rising at a moderate pace and filling a less than a half fingered white foamy head that quickly dies and left some light lacing here and there.
The smell was sweet corn with some light herbal fruitiness to it.
The taste was sweet through the corn and fruitiness to it. There was no aftertaste nor finish every time Iíve had it.
On the palate, it sat fairly light and had a pretty good sessionability running about my mouth and tongue. Carbonation was pretty smooth and creamy, hence cream ale.
Overall, this is great for the style and pretty good to me. This one is worthy of having again.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy goldenrod. Stiff white head. Aroma is a bit yeasty, bread. Taste is sweet, clear finish. Thereís not alot going on; but itís a beer you could easily drink all day long if you wanted.

Bottle pour avg gold. Nose sweet malt, hint of corn, and ever so slight sour funk. Taste initial similar to nose with generic sweet, no bitterness and late in palate a bit of grainy malt. Very clean but not very execiting.

My favorite year round beer. It is light enough to drink quite a few but tasty enough to satisfy in just 1 pint.

If youíre in Wisconsin, this stuff just comes out of the faucets! A nice cream ale. Creamy and refreshing.
