Very rich, slightly glowing copper coloured body with a bit of an orange and honey tint and a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light biscuity malts, some citrus, a bit of caster sugar, some cardboardie funk and some pale yeast. Light-bodied; Strong biscuity flavours with lighter and less assertive malt coupled with some mellow fruits and grain flavour and a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste shows some grass, caster sugar, funk and a bit of stale malt - nothing too special here. Overall, if you pulled off this label, it would be decent at best, with a lot of mundane flavours, nothing exciting and no real profiles to sample, so sadly, I was disappointed, given the pedigree and the typically good ’classic’ beers from the brewery, but this wasn’t one of them. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Edelweiss Shop in Verona, Wisconsin (of course) on 24-September-2016 for US$3,00 by my mom - thanks Mom for bringing another NG beer back from Wisconsin, even though it wasn’t the bes, sampled at home in Washington on 11-October-2016.

Pours a nice golden color with white head. Cereal grains mostly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Nice easy drinking pils. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
A very refreshing and well balanced pilsner. Slight sweetness from the malts, toast, light hops. Feel was adequate for the style. Though delicate and complex, it wet down fast. Nice n fresh too. Via heybeerman." troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014
[Bottle] Bright golden pour with a rocky head typical of the style. Sweet grain, grass and light perfume in the aroma. Flavor notes of more grains, cracker, light citrus and mild hop bitterness. Great palate/mouthfeel for the style. Not sure what the availability of this beer typically is, but as of 4/30 the Woodman’s in Kenosha had plenty of it.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Realistically, has to be one of the best pilseners I’ve had. Sweet grain, a bit of carbonation, slightly syrupy on the palate. Slight fruit. Delicious.

Clear amber pour with a white head that leaves really nice lacing. Aroma has a sweet graininess to it with a hint of citrus. Taste has some honey sweetness with some grain and a little plastic. Slight bitterness. Medium body. Fredis23 (568) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Gold Color, Big Head, Decent Lacing. Lightly sweet, Light Malt, Light Bitter. Mellow. Soft Carbonation, slightly Creamy. Pretty Good. Enjoyed It. Worth A Try. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a big frothy three fingers of white foam. The nose is very bready, touch of honeyed sweetness and traces of grassy spice. Mouthfeel is crisp, a touch thin but true to style... could use a touch more carbonation...the flavors are very focused doughy bread with a some hints of bitterness. Easy drinker. basaywhat (306) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is grainy with a hint of citrus. Creamy texture with a little citrus from the hops coming through and some corn bitterness in the aftertaste. Another solid offering from New Glarus.
