Bottled. What to say about this beer, Iíve encountered it many times and in many settings since moving to Madison two years ago, and each time it has fit right in. Friendly, unassuming, golden color. Hints of hay and fruit form its mild aroma. A light subdued taste of cream, corn, hint of grass and fruit. Sweet and simple. It is like an old friend, familar and comforting. Iím shocked at the low rating of this beer. No it doesnít push itself to be the center of attention, like other loud and bold beers. It is a simple, but well made brew.

Inoffensive home-town hero beer for Wisconsinites like me. Putting my local love aside it pours visually and tastes like a standard light beer. No skunk, nothing bitter, hints of freshness and a safe taste. My wife likes it and I think others who just want a taste of beer who don't like tasty beer but also don't want to worry about gagging it down like this. That and for people in Illinois (where I live now) it's a hip novelty to smuggle it in.
Reviewed a smuggled in bottle.

12 oz bottle: Pours just a tad cloudy with a white head that dissipates quickly but still has good CO2 release. Aroma is bready and slightly sour with grassy undertones. Taste is sweet at first with a touch of a sour finish. Pretty smooth drinker, could be very sessionable if better options were not available. Not bad, still wanting to be wowed by NGís other offerings and keeping an open mind after the mixed 12 pack was pretty average all around.

Clear deep golden under a thin foamy head. Clean malty yet earthy nose of oats and light corn and earthy blonde cereal grains. Clean nutty yet blonde cereal malt flavors with some gentle wheat and oats, low bitterness and just overall blonde malty. Too light and blandish.

Easy drinking beer only available in Wisconsin. Golden and slightly cloudy appearance. Taste is light and not hoppy. Good overall and will continue to get occasionally.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours classic golden color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is simple, free of hops or anything other than classic "beer" aroma. Taste is sweet from start to finish. A good alternative to a macro brew on a hot, summer day.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
