Great lager, from Riley’s in Madison. Generous retained head on noticeable yellow. Smooth mouthfeel, something I could drink lots of. Mild but noticeable bitterness.

16 ounce pour at the New Glarus Brewery. The Two Women of New Glarus are nice company, but they don’t make a lasting impression. They have enough spark to keep you mildly interested. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready to commit to having another drink with them. The idea of a Country Ale sounded nice and unfiltered, yet the flavor was surprisingly tame. This one is good for a mainstream taster, pleasant and typical. For those who are looking for something bolder though, it’s nothing unique.

Clear dark amber with a small, pillowy white head. Light spicy, doughy aroma followed up with flavors of crisp herbal hops and doughy malt. Crisp and clean on the palate with a nice lively carbonation. Great stuff from New Glarus again.

Amber color with white head. Aroma is pretty generic, malt and hops. Taste is New Glarus though and through. Biscuity flaked barley flavor with a decent amount of balancing hops. That’s it and that’s all it should be. Full flavored, easy drinking, clean and smooth. A great everyday driniking lager.

I really like this beer. Pours a light bronze color with a quickly fading, fizzy head. A very crisp palate makes this beer easily session-able. The flavors of light citrus, sweet barley, grass, and flowers would match nicely with most meals.

A solid well crafted beer with a very euro inspired flavor. Can’t say I’m a big fan of this beer, but it is just not a style I really enjoy...

Pours a darker hay colour with a puffy finger of white head. lively carbonation. Aroma of freshly cut hay, grassy, bready with a bit of caramel and lemon. Taste of sweet malts, grass, a small amount of spice, hops and some green apple. Medium bodied. Very fresh. Would gladly take one or two after mowing the lawn or biking.

Doesn’t seem to have typical pilsner characteristics. Pour is brown with an average white head. The hops and malt are well balanced. To me, this seems more along the lines of a dunkel. But it is a very good dunkel indeed. Great beer!
