Poured a medium brown color with a thin off white head that went away quickly. Thin bodied brown with armoas of caramel and toffee. Taste of hazelnut and apricot with a mild alcohol astringency. A pretty decent brown ale.

A sampling from the choice of the three at a cost of $3.50. Again, wish it could have been more than a few ounces so one could discover the life of the beer instead of just the beginning.

Bottle to glass. A dark golden brown. Smell is a little metallic? Light to medium carbonation. A sweet nutty flavor, but it is balanced. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This highly rated beer did not find favor here. Provided to Mr and Mrs Signalwriter by the Jersey Girls, we sampled bottles in Minnesota and Texas - though from the same batch/carton. Bottles pour a Coca-Cola brown with a quite light head. Aroma and flavor are mild and aromatic, and the taste is tart. Dry mouthfeel. Average taste.

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

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.

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!

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.
