A large, off-white head with fair lacing. Aromas of bubble gum and vanilla (pleasant). A rather light body, with a creamy texture. Moderate sweetness. truebluehes (202) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. One of the better pilsners Iíve had. Very smooth and drinkable. Good summer brew. A touch more robust than most pilsners. 37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice clear yellow with a thin head. Much stronger hop aroma than expected with the color. Well balanced malt flavor with a strong bitter finish. Another good beer from New Glarus. felsenpils (172) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Bottle. A seasonal brew. This is my favorite of the New Glarus beers. It is a decent pilsener, but the color is too dark due to the use of caramel malts which do not belong here and the aroma and flavor of hops is too strong. This is not an "old world style pilsner" as it says in the description, rather an American micro-pils, along the lines of Samuel Adamīs nobel pils. The hops taste "green" because of dry hopping which you would never find in a German pils. New Glarus has all the tools to make really great beer, but never gets there. starewich (170) - - AUG 26, 2012
Lighter beers rarely leave me wanting more but this one did. The key grass and corn flavors are there but thereís actually some malty substance to this that sets it apart from lesser specimens.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is balls to the wall pilsner; if you canít take it than switcth to smirnoff ice! Bitter and full flavored session pils; acidity, hops, hops, malt, hops, and refreshment. A great beer for the summer. This is Wisconsin baby and you bettta recognize game. Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Smells friuty and the head on this tap beer is very frothy. Tastes very bold and the hops are nice. The friutness adds to the complexity of this beer. Had at the Hoover Ave Ale House. GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Dark, clear golden, with very generous head. Aromas of straw, pine, hops. Fresh, crisp, clean taste. Very mild bitterness, with slight astringent taste. Some spice & herbs also present. stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2007
I have praised Dan and Deb for bringing this back to our open mouths ! The taste is malty with an assertive bitternes (flavor and aroma) not as dry as some dort style lagers, but better balanced. Flavor is perfect and this is what my great grandfather would have loved after pushing the manual lawnmower around. I wish and can hope that they make this a year round beer !!!! PS this is also Danís favorite beer to brew (as told by Deb) Cheers ! jarlbartar (89) - Janesville, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Poured a real blonde with an aroma of flowery hops and some maltiness, maybe butterscotch notes. Taste is full of bitter hops with some clove accents and grass. Left a hoppy, bitter aftertaste, a very good representation of the style.
