3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the brewery. Aroma of toasted biscuit, light malt sweetness, honey, slight dough and some fresh, herbal hop tinges. Simple but rather pleasant. Clear medium amber in color, head is fine and subsiding, some lacing present as well. Flavor profile is likewise full of toasty, biscuity, bready and lightly sweet malts, some very light fruitiness (apple, pear) and a gentle, leafy, herbal hop profile, closing with just a touch of bitterness. Clean and well-balanced with a refreshing, lightly effervescent feel, body is light-medium. Good stuff, seems right up New Glarus’ alley.

Fresh. That's the best word to describe this beer. The freshness comes through in a way that you can really taste the earthiness of the beer. There's a distinct malt taste that I appreciate but don't love - it almost reminds me of how hay smells in a barn. I appreciate this beer.

Bottled. Dark goldenrod with a moderate egg white head. Clean straw, dried grass and light caramel aroma, crisp and straightforward. Big toasty malt notes come out as it warms. Mildly sweet grain flavor with some subtle sourdough bread. There is some light pumpernickel in the finish. Well made and tasty for the style.

Bottle thanks to Frankcis. Pours a dark yellow to light red, with minimal head. Aroma is a sweet malt honey like sweetness, not much hops to it. Taste is very sweet with some light toastiness to it, short of crustiness. A very light bitterness reveals itself in the finish. Not much hop flavor; the malt is so dominating in the flavor. However, it still has a semi sweet to dry finish. Low on the carbonation that I think makes this seem a little more malt focused or sweet as well. Overall, fault free, but I’ve had much better beers from NG when they brew these classic styles.

I had this at Norwegian Hollow. Pours gold with a white head. Taste lightly sweet, grass, grain. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

This is classified as a pilsener on this site as of May 2014. It is a bit dark for that--more of an orange than yellow or golden--but the taste is kind of close I suppose. I’d say this resembles a cheap American lager as much as anything. and a good one at that. (I am a fan of the style so do not mean for that to be a backhanded complement.) It is crisp w/ just a touch of toffee like malts w/o being thick or sweet. The carbonation borders on being too vigorous but as it is it works pretty well and helps keep the palate crisp. A slight lemony fruit not comes out in the finish, which increases as the beer warms in the glass a bit. This isn’t a world beater but it is crisp and blanced, a nice choice for the summertime.
