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.

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.

Hazy straw color. Light body, summertime would have been better for this rating. Very easy drinking with a nice balance. Finishes short and pleasant

Corn, wheat, yeast, a little lemon with a sweet touch. Flavors kind of mash together and ends with a bitter taste. Another good beer from New Glarus.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First thing- darker yellow, cloudy. No head whatsoever. Weird. Really tasty, bready, wheaty. Very easy to drink, yet with enough palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden straw color with almost no head, even after a slight shake in an attempt to rouse carbonation. The aroma is malty, bready and creamy, then yeasty, fruit and spice. The flavor is sweet malt, wheatlike in nature, and the yeast has some really nice character. I don’t think I would classify this as a cream ale. The beer is very bitter at all which may result from the additional sweetness provided by the undercarbonation. Overall this is a good easy drinking summer beer, that I would like to re-rate when I have one that is fully carbonated.
