3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks ughsmash. Pours a sharp clean golden amber with one finger of creamy eggshell white head. Nose is very bready and malt forward. Lots of herbal hops and a little bit of saccharine sweetness. Malty sweet flavor with a slightly musty and herbal flavor. Medium body with a soft carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared courtesy of the kind souls in the Tampa Crew. Pours clear orange with a white head. Nose is grain, caramel, yeast, slight bread, and just a nice malt presence with a subtle hint of the lager yeast strain. Flavor is similar- nice malt profile with grain and bread in the flavor with lager yeast in the finish, but unobtrusive. I could drink this by the gallon. I guess I am finding that it is not the style I dislike as much as I dislike so many examples of the style.

Great strong sweet aroma of corn, rice, light malt, and hops. Flavor is crisp, light, sweet, fresh, hoppy. Palate is light but with a long sweetness.

Pours a clear amber orange. Slightly sweet, almost apple aroma. Soft taste of sweet malts, that fades with a mild hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

Ar: Grassy malt and sulfur - a touch of spicy hops.
Ap: Copper-gold, crystal clear - medium off-white head with medium retention and a thin lacing.
T: Medium-sweet toasted malt flavor - high bitterness, slightly herbal hop flavor - very bready mid-palate, exceptionally clean - finish is lightly toasted.
P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Delicious, clean, and malty lager - nice charge of hop bitterness and herbal flavor - really superb, I could drink this all night long.

This is certainly not my favorite new glarus. It’s a kind of muddy, slightly cardboardy lager. Good hop profile, but overall nothing great.

Copper colored pour with an off white head. Great malt aroma. Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops. A little sweet, dry at the finish. Good lacing.

The aroma doesn’t impress me, kind of artificial or chemical?. That said, it pours a nice dark gold amber with a white brief head and some lacing. The taste is quite good, a nice balance of malt and hops. The finish is agreeable with a little toastiness. A pretty good lager that I would try again. I wish I would have tried the previous recipe since the consensus seems to be it was a little better.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a soapy off white head that fades to a wispy film. Aroma is grassy fruit and malt. Taste is malty grain and grass with bitter finish. Palate is thin and bready with a dry crisp finish.
