Golden appearance with a white foamy head with good lacing. Good light tasting beer DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 28, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with footbalm, thanks Eric!) Not a very attractive beer, being that the white "head" barely covers the beer for just an instant before quickly fading to a thin ring. The hazy, light golden color is nice, but there also isn’t much in the way of carbonation bubbles. And I’m not trying to pile on, but the nose isn’t very aromatic either; it smells vaguely grainy with a slight amount of sweet honey. At least there’s some flavor to this beer, but again, it’s just not impressing me. A cheap-tasting honey-like sweetness seems to be the most prevalent flavor, which isn’t what I’m looking for in a pilsener, or actually any beer for that matter. Otherwise, it’s just generically grainy and lightly bitter, but not hoppy in any real way. And I swear there’s a slight hint of chocolate in this. Maybe that’s why the label is brown? Body is light-medium, and the carbonation is a bit elevated, so it’s not the most pleasant mouthfeel. Overall, this "nobel" pilsener is just an average, unmemorable beer that tastes cheaply sweet, and I guess I’ve come to expect better from New Glarus.

From bottle : Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that dies fast. Very carbonated. Aroma is very grassy with sugar. Taste is sweet, with the grass and some yeast and bread. Thin mouthfeel, and not a very smooth feel, a little tart. Not much aftertaste. It is ok for a pilsner. shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Corn/barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Sweet corny barley malt and had flavor. Medium body. Drinkable but a disappointment - more like a mediocre pale lager. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Nice golden color with a white head. Bubbles are weak and flacid. Gorgeous white bread aromas almost sweet like you could eat it. Sweet and extreamly boring on the palate. If you are looking for a dry pilsner this will frustrate you. There’s no zip or zang at all. It’s more pale lager-dormunteresque than a pilsner. The finish is completely unacceptable and dissapears.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 GABF 2003: Clear yellow color with a small head. No aroma, I mean none. I'm sure why a beer with no aroma gets a 4, but I'm sure that I knew what I was doing. Watery mouthfeel, almost nonexistent ending. Yikes! That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Maybe it’s cuz I just woke up, aight, but I have nothing positive to say about this one. Swing and a miss by New Glarus far as I’m concerned. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2009
Bottle from ZindeHey, thanks. Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of noble hops, tortilla chips and corn. Did someone sneak a miller in this bottle? Taste of malt, mild floral hops, faint honey and lemon, blah city. Finishes up kind of unpleasant.
