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. Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2011
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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 This was a nice ale. Had a smooth nutty taste. And just hoppy enough. Something I would buy again. wickster (85) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Poured from a 12 bottle into standing imp pint glass. What a great beer...great roasted taste, nice brown look to it. Just overall one kick ass beer.

I’m a bit bias on this beer. I’m an absolutely huge fan of new glarus. This beer is a bit nutty but a classic smooth new glarus taste i’ve 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.

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. Oogiee (71) - Taipei, TAIWAN - JAN 4, 2014

Very nice brown ale with a hint of nuttiness. Slightly more bitter than I would like but overall very good.
