A very nice pilsner. Aromatic, smooth, then a pleasing kind of pilsner finish.

Nice taste. Labeled as a lager but appearance and taste go a bit in the direction of an ale from my point of view.

Aroma sings of biscuit malts and caramels. Pours gold with a steady of white head, medium carbonation. Taste is more biscuit and malt with some nut. The palate takes a bit of zing from hints of citrus or some other tartness. Drinkable though not excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aromas are vibrant with notes of bread dough, lemon, some candy sugar, some grass, and pine cleanser late. The beer is clear, sparkling, oily and effervescent with an orange gold hue. The head is white and foamy, sudsy that leaves a good lace and a medium ring around the edges. The beer is a medium high sweet quality with a light bitter finish. Its’s plenty fizzy and zippy with an oily texture but a fairly light - maybe medium light - body. Buttered toast flavored are noted initially which turns more bready by midglass. There’s a grassy and citrus zip to the finish. It’s crisp, refreshing, and clean with a light astringent, grassy aftertaste.

12 oz bottle shared by MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity!
Slightly hazy medium golden color with a decent head. Aromas of rich sweet bready pilsner malt with hints of light fruit and extremely faint floral hops. Sweet bready maltiness without much to provide balance. Fruity flavor seems out of place in a clean lager. Easy enough to drink but needs some tweaking.

A little bitter. Light in color and not much of an aroma. Not my favorite by any means from the New Glarus lineup

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle bought in southern Wisconsin. Pours a crystal clear gold with a fine white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lace on the top and sparce lacing in the side. Aroma of caramel sweetness, corn, brown sugar, and malt. Spicy hops faint in the aroma. Flavor of spicy hops right up front with some grain and corn character present. Soft and light sweetness throughout. Body is light plus with a dry finish. Overall a very clean and light beer but not quite what I expect from a pilsner.
