UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 This was a nice ale. Had a smooth nutty taste. And just hoppy enough. Something I would buy again.

Clean nose with slight grassiness and hint of sweet malt on nose. Mouthfeel is a little abrasive up front with a surprisingly creamy finish. The finish reminds me of a white whiskey. A small sharp punch of alcohol, not quite boozy but a clean almost vodka like minerality. Malts don't stand up as much as I would expect for the style. Kinda like a Belgium pale ale. Finish is confusing in a good way. Pretty good. ---That dog will hunt!

Im a bit bias on this beer. Im an absolutely huge fan of new glarus. This beer is a bit nutty but a classic smooth new glarus taste ive come to appreciate. always a treat when i can drink this.

Another very good very drinkable beer from New Glarus. Malty flavor with a decent taste of hops in the background. New Glarus has never dissapointed me.

erickomosa (68) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Light brown with bubbly lasting head. Smells distinctly nutty, with hops. Tastes lightly roasted nuts, mild caramel malts, with hop crispness to finish. Body is highly carbonated, sparkling even. Finishes hoppy, clean, crisp.

jjkuck10 (66) - , Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2010
From the bottle; light brown-copper in color with light off-white head. Smell of roasted-toasted malt/nuts, with a sweet caramel-chocolate note and hint of coffee, earth aroma. Medium body and slighty creamy; sweet taste, slighty bitter throught the middle and end. Overall a very good beer from one of Wisconsins best; New Glarus Brewing Co.

medium head, dark amber color, sweet malty nutty aroma, caramel and lightly smokey palate (very pleasant), clean lingering finish with a lot of character. Excellent brew.
