COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with flaked barley and the finest Wisconsin malts. We even give a nod to our farmers with a little hint of corn. Naturally cloudy we allow the yeast to remain in the bottle to enhance fullness of flavors, which can not be duplicated otherwise. Expect this Ale to be fun, fruity and satisfying.

Okay for a light beer. Softly carbonated, slightly yeasty-flavored, and drinkable in a refreshing way. Almost like a hefe-weizen. Not much in the way of malts or hops, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Although it is the weakest of all New Glarus’ beers, this is still a very good beer. The soft head and musty aroma is not unique for American cream ales, but this is a great example of one. The corn definitely adds a "Miller-ness" taste, but is far superior to High Life. There are bubble gum and hay notes, but it has enough corn character to make it authenic. The yeast definitely adds some complexity. Maybe not a cream ale, but good nonetheless.

Pours the color of wheat straw, forms a thin white head which disapates. Aroma has a hint of green apple, but no discernable hops or malt. Flavor is on the light side, a hint of green apple, a subtle fruitiness, and no detectable sweetness from the corn. A well-carbonated beer, light and refreshing. A good example of a cream ale.

Very drinkable...Not a bad beer...looks more like a wheat beer than anything else. I would drop it in the "high-end-lawnmower" beer category. Pale-ish gold in color and smalish head. Not much in the way of hops. Nothing bad here just sort of well...unremarkable.

Cloudy golden yellow with a nice head--almost looks like hefeweizen. Mild lager-style. Not as good as the zwickel but still tasty and refreshing.

Someonce once urged me to try one, and declared it "the best". So now I have, but that claim speaks more about them then it does aobut this. Appearance: a clear pale yella hue, with a slight, soon vanishing white head. Nose is mee, softly citric, a tiny bit sour. Smooth on the palate, though not entirely without flavor. Practically no hops no speak of, just adequate enough malt, vestigal fruit notes whisper briefly. Finish is brief, non-descript. Body is light to the point of invisibility. A very fragile, meek little beer. Would be a decent choice for a "lawnmower" brew, maybe, when complexity and challenge are not in the order. Not a bad beer, but not much, either.

Thanks to Drnk_McDermott for this. Pours turbid pale yellow with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of hops, malt, citrus, some corn. Tastes malty, with hop/citrus, and some finishing corn flavor. I had pegged this as New Glarus’ version of a malt liquor of sorts, not a cream ale.....but it works as a cream ale. A very unique style, and one I’d definitely drink again.

This is a very refreshing, easy-to-drink beer. A slight fruitiness, malt, and light hops are evident. The sales of this beer allow New Glarus to produce all of their better beers.

I really like this beer, it just probably dosn’t appeal to those looking for a hit you over the head with robust character lovin microbrew fanatic. It is refreshing, with a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel, and a slightly tart yeast kick. It is an original brew with few standards to judge it by.

First New Glarus beer from JPDIPSO’s trade with me. How can a New Glarus product be rated so low??? It baffles the imagination. Has more of a belgian witbier look than a cream ale look. Definitely is the best Cream Ale I’ve had. Other two weren’t even in this stratosphere. Excellent Cream Ale. Definitely the best I’ve had and probably ever will. It is everything the description says and more. John, thank you for this wonderful gem from Wisconsin. Its simply an awesome beer!!!
