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.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 Rerate. 12 oz, no date. Pours a clear pale golden with a one finger quickly fading head. Aroma of some corn and grain with light grassy hops. Flavor is grain with a corny slightly sweet finish. Light body with moderate carbonation. Works well as a summer beer, but there are plenty of better ones.Old rating follows.Sampled at the brewery (May 21st/ in their little shot glass thing. Pours a clear yellow golden with a tight, fizzy white head. Despite being from New Glarus, I canít tell what makes this "premium"--seems more like a pale lager. Aroma of corn and grains. The taste is much the samewith a biscuity finish. If we put this in the same category as Bobís 47(as it is), this gets smoked. As a pale lager I think itís pretty decent, but otherwise, not so much. 5-3-6-3-11--2.8

Light golden yellow with decent white head. Aroma and flavor decent for the style. Sweet corn like aroma with faint noble hop background. Flavor much the same with some residuel sweetness. Decent for the style.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Almost a clear ,maybe tainted yellow, light aroma of a malt hop mix,and maybe some corn adjunct, palest straw,must be a 2-3 SRM very light ,slightly sweet malt taste,just a touch of bitterness,seems like it was hoping to be a Continental Pilsner,but ended up more an American Light Lager. Obviously not meant for Rate Beerians

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Pours clear light bright yellow with little to no head. Aroma of corn, metallic and grains. Flavor? Well letís jnust say this beer should be called "A Traditional Flavorless American Lager".

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Aroma of grain and delicate floral hops, but mostly grain. Appears the palest yellow, with a modest white creamy head. Flavor is mostly of grains, and a bit sweet. Palate is light, soft and refreshing. I suppose the beer is perfectly to style, and an excellent example of a premium lager, but I guess it is a perfect example of a style that does not excite me. Overall it is equal to the sum of its parts.

heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Poured with a light yellow body and a thin white head. There were plenty of fast and slow moving carbonation bubbles. The aroma had fresh shucked corn and some grass. The taste is lightly coppery with some raw corn and a little bit of earthy cheese rind. Not bad for the style.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Thanks to TannerTavernBoys for sharing. Aroma was barely detectable - some sweet maltiness with hints of banana. Very light bodied with fairly low carbonation. Taste was very clean malt with a mild amount of sweetness. Very little to be tasted from hops. This is an okay beer. It would probably be better taking down a few on a hot summer day, but during a beer tasting it is not too iimpressive. (6/3/8/6/12- 2.9 on 5/17/2006) Update on fresh bottle over 4 years from initial review - Pours clear yellow / golden with a moderate sized white head. The aroma has clean pale malt, hint of smooth caramel and some bread - clean and simple. Medium / thin body that is smooth and then gets crisp with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts much like the aroma with a touch of honey and a bit of spicy hops. The finish has a nice mix of honey sweetness and spicy hops. Quite nice.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottled. Poured a very clear, very bright golden with a short cap of creamy white head. Nose was of light herbal hoppage, corn, grains, and a bit of sweet malts. Very light in the mouthfeel and flavor departments... sweet bready malt base with herbal hops and graininess. Nothing close to offensive or exciting in here... brewed for the warmest of days.

Pours to a watery golden body with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation. The aroma is grassy/herbal Saaz hops, corn husks, pale malt. The flavor is acually pretty decent. Crisp Saaz hoppiness, herbal, grainy, bready, Iíve been more offended by some stouts... Anyway, the palate is medium-light bodied, slick, not watery. Crisp feel. Not lingering. Very easy drinking. A great lawnmower beer. 2.8 is deceiving. This is quite drinkable and is not a drain-pour 2.8, simply pale lagers are boring.
