3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy light orange with white head that disappears in the blink of an eye. Aroma of grains with a slightly orange citrus. Flavor is balanced malt, hop, grains and orange citrus. Seems like it would be great for everything they list in the commercial description. Props to them for that.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to Chuck for the sample. Not too good weak hoppy aroma. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. The flavor was kind of bland; with yeast and a little hops. OK body and texture and carbonation. Overall, I didn’t care much for this.

Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Malty, sweet and yeasty nose. Pretty much ditto for the flavor. Smooth palate. Light body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Vibrant straw, minor haze, moderate white frothy head, sparce lacing, very light carbonation. Nose of oats, straw, cereal, and grass. Sweet grassy start, oats, cereal, slight graininess but as it warmed it faded. Very clean, fairly malty. Very unique this one is. Body and mouthfeel are fair, yet smooth. Very clean, no real residuals after the finish. Not my style of beer but this one was enjoyable. Thanks to both 1FastSTi and JPDIPSO for each sending me a bottle!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow color with a thin head. Grainy aroma with a slight lemon twist. More grains in the taste, but very clean and crisp. I hate to sound like a BMC commercial, but this is just a nice and simple beer with a decent amount of grain taste and nothing at all to detract from it. Not a favorite, but pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy yellow with a small head. Aroma is spicy wheat, cereal grains and sweet malt. Flavor is crisp, spicy wheat , sweet malt and yeast. Very clean and crisp on the palate but still retains a medium/full bodied feel. A light tickle of carbonation and a nice malty finish make this an execellent beer; much better beer than I was expecting. If this is seasonal then I’d better pick some up now because I can really picture this on a hot summer day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale, hazy orange body.
Sweet, yeasty candy aroma, with some grainy cereal.
Up front, grainy malt taste with the yeast smoothing it out some. Some dry eraser head in there too.
I definitely like New Glarus’s implementation, but not necessarily their style… or is it vice versa…. Great implementation of a style, but not my thing? I think I liked their other Zwickel a bit better. But this is still a good drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle-lightly hazy particulate yellow with a fizzy white surface. lots of funky yeast here-almost barnyard like and skunky. very grainy and husky. spritzy body with great mouthfeal-crisp, lite on the palate but full bodied as well. Would be great on a hot day. nice sweet grain husk flavors which actually work well with the sweet almost adjunct notes. Fairly simple, yet unique from the pack of light lagers out there. Would be a fantastic session beer for a hot humid southern WI day.
