The beer pours a hazy brightish gold with a light white head only rising about a finger and gone quickly. The aroma is nice and light, sweet, yeasty, bready, a little wheat, nice combination, needs a little more assertiveness. The start is nice and sweet but then at the end its super skunky so it really kills it for me. The feel is medium, limited drinkability because of the drinkability. Overall, started off ok, then fades to terribleness.

A: snifter. light yellow color, very cloudy. nice white head. faint lacing, decent retention. S: fruity. some clove, but that’s about it. a lot of yeasty aromas. T: light in flavor. almost wheat-like. yeasty flavors with some fruits, but hard to say which ones. M: smooth and creamy. light mouthfeel. good carbonation. D: I don’t really know whats going on with this style of beer, but it lacked a lot of flavor. very interesting, but not something I will drink again.

This was my first Keller Bier--picked it up during my wife and I’s honeymoon after our self-guided tour of the brewery. Pours a bright gold with a very nice white head and loads of lacing as it goes down. Pilsner malt with a good deal of sweetness, and plenty of European hops. The sweetness is just perfect--nothing too much, but it’s certainly there. Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Drinkability is excellent; one of my favorite New Glarus beers, and perhaps my favorite that doesn’t have fruit in it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-04-2009

Certainly not the best from New Glarus, but what can you really expect from a lager.

Vir4030 (496) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Pours a nice healthy foggy orange with a decent head. Not too much aroma, just a faint citrus, and a faint beer. Taste is also of a faint citrus and a faint beer. Very smooth.

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle (thanks to guyinchicago for this one)... Poured hazy, golden/orange with a thick white head. Good looking beer. Crisp, cracker-malt, biscuity aroma. Mild hops, earthy, honey sweet tones. And bread-like malts. Crisp, clean, refreshing and prominent yeast tones.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Hazy opaque goldenrod color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is pale malts and a very light fruitiness. Almost has me believing there’s some wheat in here. Flavor is pilsener perfection. This is exactly the malt profile I want in a pilsener. Some taste like corn, some taste like cereal grains, some taste like pure pale malt, but this tastes like fresh bread, with a light honeyed character giving it some sweetness. Again I’m detecting a mild pithy banana note in there that points to wheat, but maybe it’s just some sort of yeasty note? A little grassiness on the finish, which is super crisp. Reminds me of Reality Czeck to an extent, but more traditional (i.e. not hopped to delicious oblivion). Dry and very refreshing. Not too thin and not at all fizzy. Just sublime. I would love to have this stuff around in the summer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden orange. Aroma is nice and yeasty to begin with, but mostly disappears when the head does. Taste is a bit zesty, with lots of wheat and yeast. Nice fizzy mouthfeel. Finish is a bit grassy.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2010
12 ounce bottle courtesy of madvike. Thanks! Pours a lightly hazed pale yellow color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread and caramel with some fruity notes. Taste is bready and yeasty with apple, peach, caramel, mildly hoppy finish. Medium bodied, fairly strong carbonation. This is insanely drinkable.
