3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear honey color. Very little head, slight lacing. Aroma is of hay and light malt. Flavor is light and very crisp. Palate is great, some liveliness but not too fizzy. Overall a highly drinkable lager. I would love to relax with one of these on a hot summer day. Thanks to meisterbrauMHB for this!

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
