No head whatsoever(?!?) and rather weak carbonation for a pilsener. The toasted malt is quite good, but I’d like a little more hops please. Good pretzel beer. austinpowers (2828) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2002
Has a decent head and a pleasant pils flavor, but this beers too fizzy for me. proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2002
For those who don’t think a pilsener can be a good beer, think again. Edel-Pils is a fine pilsener, if not one of the best I’ve ever tried. Pours out to a darker, but still bright, golden color in the glass with a slightly off-white head that sticks around for awhile. Smell is that or faint yeast, but somewhat faintly sweet. Taste is that of a great hop to malt balance, with a slightly sweet tinge to it. Very similar to a European pils, i.e. Pilsener Urquell, Czechvar, etc, but better.

Tasty. It doesn’t have quite the bite of a Pilsner Urquell, but sometimes that’s a good thing. TAR (2742) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2002
Malty aroma with little hop snap. This is a very average pilsner if you ask me. The hops were barely noticeable. I expected something a little more over the top from this nice brewery.

Not my favorite of NG’s beers, but its still damn good. muzzlehatch (4950) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2001
Given the brewer’s predilection for fruit beers, it’s no surprise that the appearance of this excellent beer is reminiscent of cider, a beautiful clear amber with just a hint of red. Creamy head that falls a bit too quickly; flavor mellow, creamy, hoppy and just a bit citrusy all at once; not a bold masterpiece, but a subtle, sublime example of the brewmaster’s art for the discerning taster. Finish lingers and lingers with a hint of apple and lemon amidst the hoppiness. Aroma probably better than my score; when I drink this unencumbered by a cold, it will really be a treat! scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2001
Nice, fresh tasting pilsner. Good blend of hops, gives this a refreshing flavor and lasting finish. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2001
Flowery pils-style that was full and round. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 Great beer from a great town. A solid brew that has a favorable taste to it. The brewers down at the new glarus brewery have done themselves proud with this one.
