A good alternative to Miller products while at a bar. The flavor and aroma is very much like being on a farm (without the manure). Corn, hay, grains, grass, fruit trees etc. Mostly corn and barley though.

Bottle - thanks to eyedrinkale for the trade. Pours cloudy golden color with a moderate white head that diminishes mostly. Aroma is grainy and yeasty with the barley and corn providing a subtle twist, notes of lemon and grass as well. Flavor is sweet like a sweet bread or cereal, with a bit of citrus rind and lightly hopped. Medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Nice, easy drinking ale.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aromas of citrus and hay. Flavor of malty hay and corn. Body is almost creamy. This is a great session that is on tap many places in Southern Wisconsin. One of the first good beers I liked.

An excellent cream ale...as well as local favorite in Wisconsin. Cloudy orange yellow with short lasting white head. A malty and slightly sweet aroma accompanied by a lightly tart and sweet malt flavor....very drinkable. A nice example from the ever reliable New Glarus.

Cloudy yellow with a thin but creamy head. Aroma is light also with some biscuit and cloves. Taste has a corn flavor to it with some light lemon and orange citrus. On the thin bodied side but it’s clean and drinkable.

Very good beer by New Glarus, Living in Wisconsin I have tried alot of their brews and to me this is one of the best. I prefer it over some of their others.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Aroma is very fresh and appetizing, but no distinctive flavors comeout. Pours cloudy, which I enjoy in a cream ale. Small head that diminishes to nothing quickly. It has a palate that sparkles with the balanced flavors of wheat and corn. A very smooth, creamy finish. Great all around beer.

The cloudy appearence gives away this beer’s mild and sweet character. A creamy, warm flavor, even when served ice-chilled, this beer is a top favorite for a lazy weekend afternoon or a low-key evening at your tavern of choice. My personal "stand-by" when I have no other speicifc taste in mind.
