3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Pours a bright and clear amber color with a receding cream colored head on it. Crisp and grassy nose is spicy and inviting. Tastes of bready malts, light grainy toasted notes, grass and floral hops. Dry and mildly hoppy finish. Solid body and mouthfeel. High drinkablity. This beer can easily compete with some of its European brethren.

12 oz bottle courtesy Ughsmash. This one pours a cloudy golden color and topped by a small head of white foam that quickly recedes to a thin film. The aroma is clean and simple showing toasted bread and doughy malts along with clean grains, and a touch of grassy hop bitterness. The flavor follows suit and shows a good balance between the toasted bread, grains, and grassy hops. Medium to light bodied with ample carbonation that leads to a crisp, dry finish. This is a clean and simple pils that is easy drinking for those hot summer days. Not quite as masterful as the R&D series version, but still a good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light copper color. Aroma is sweet, grainy, hoppy. Taste is slightly sweet, light hoppyness, Lots of pilsener flavor, malty, some caramel. Slight skunkyness is there for me, but I get that in pretty much all pilseners for some reason, then it goes away as i drink. Body is light with a nice amount of carbonation. A very nice pilsener, I remember it being substantially better when it was in R&D bottle, maybe Its just my memory.

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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...
