COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure and crisp, this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness. Expect this beer to pour a delicate golden hue that sparkles in the summer sun. Extra Pale is brewed using all natural ingredients with no artificial additives of any kind.

12 oz bottle purchased at Woodmans Grocery in Janesville. Snowy, creamy head, moderately lasting, pale gold and bubbly...reasonably pleasant fresh grainy nose, perhaps a touch of corn...refreshing, sweet mouthfeel, bit sugary--could be corn syrup--kinda sticky and with very little finish, no hops. I found this quite drinkable for what it is, though not up to NG’ high standards.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) I was expecting that New Glarus would put together a decent pale lager, but I’m totally disappointed in this brew. It pours a pale straw color, fully clear, with plentiful carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The white head starts small and quickly fades to a tiny ring. The flavor is grainy and lightly citrusy up front, with mild honeydew melon in the finish. But the nose is grainy lager. Light bodied, but not far from being watery. Drinking while totally naked can be a really fun thing, but actually drinking Totally Naked is something I never want to do again.

Very disappointing for a micro! Almost no presence of hops detected. Double extra SUPER watery texture. The web site says it has 5% alcohol, but I don’t believe it. You would detect alcohol in something this void of any other flavors. Geez! Milwaukees Best Light has more taste than this! And then theres the price: $6.99 for a sixer on 9/15/2k5. I will not buy this again!

pretty hard to tell the difference between this and any bud/miller mass produced product. i enjoy new glarus products, but this was just too generic for me. i don’t know why they bothered to make a beer like this

Super light appearence and head. Very watery with a hint of hops. A little bit of malt frothiness adds to the faint hops to make a very light, yet still satisfying, beer.

Basically appearance is that of every macro out there, but the taste is only what you can get with high quality, no adjunct brewing. Pretty plain in every way, but it is so much better than the macros. What Bud, Miller, et. al. should be.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Very clear, very pale straw color, with a modest amount of white head that disappears completely. Initially some very spicy hops, with sour green apple and yeast. Some grassy/dill aroma. Modest hop flavor with that nice herbal Saaz quality, some pleasant grain flavor, and a clean finish. Soft on the palate with just enough carbonation to keep it lively. I’d say this is leaps and bounds better than most American "premium" lagers. But man--more hops would really help here. New Glarus does triple decoction mashing already--so why not load up on the hops and go for something more like a real Czech pils?

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2005
This is one of the lightest colored yellow beers that I’ve had, looking almost like carbonated water. Small head, too. The aroma’s a sweet grassy smell with extremely faint flowery hops on top. The flavor’s a bit light, sweet malt, a dash of lemon, a hint of hop bitterness. The description states that I’ll find "no coarse bitterness" in this beer. That’s a shame. It might have made it more interesting.

Nice large bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces quickly. Great carbonation. Light corn and cereal aroma with some light hops in there. Not much really. Pale gold in color. Light and crisp flavor with more corn and hops. Maybe a little lemongrass. Pretty watery though. Finish is clean and a little dry. Knowing the BMC crowd out there this is probably and unfortunately their best seller.

Got to try this late on Monday during my business trip to Milwaukee (Bernie’s in Germantown, on tap). Got to say, poured like a miller or natural light. Had minimal aroma (though tough to say due to the smokers at the bar)…did not find it offensive, just non-descript. The flavor was very light with (perhaps) some hop crispness moving directly into the standard Cornish semi-syrupy sweetness of light lager. Overall, this would likely be good as an ice cold quencher (in fact, you could give it a 3 in that catagory) when you did not want to think about it (but isn’t that what Miller light is for?)
