Has a decent malty aroma. Murky dark brown color, with no head to speak of. Flavor is kind of fruity, but not definite. Kind of a light body and not much carbonation. Overall, this is not my cup of tea (or beer). hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2006
a big thanks to cperry8483 for the 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma is slightly bready with fruit notes and malt. Taste is of mild fruit, mild chocolate with a slightly sweet malt finish. This would make a good session beer. Thanks Chris. JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Pours a dark muddy brown with light tan head. Aroma of hops, bread, fruit, sweet malts and some nuttiness. Flavor follows aroma. Good ale. ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark murky brown with amber hues toward the edges an off-white foamy head that slowly fades to a film. Yeasts, dark fruits, nuts and a background sourness all come through in the aroma and taste. No hop bitterness to speak of. This could possibly pass for a brown ale. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2006
12oz bottle. Muddy brownish with a tan white head and an intense aroma of sweet malts. Fruity, cherry, cocoa vanilla nose. Truly splendid. Bready and grainy malt flavor. Slick and oily body with long sweet cola finish. Malts are smooth and flavorful. Hops are dry yet citrusy, long and lively. Still a Coca-Cola-esque body to it! What can I say, these guys are good.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Pours a dark brown color with a moderate size tan head. Smells of chocolate, roast, and caramel malt. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt, spicy hop profile in the finish. Very drinkable and tasty. Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Ho-Hum. Expected more from New Glarus. I found the flavor to be nondistinct. Aroma was the most appealing characteristic. I was hoping for a more hoppy ale. Difficult brew to classify. cperry8483 (41) - Platteville, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2006
I’m a big fan of New Glarus beers, and this is one of my favorites. Not just one of my favorite NG, but one of my favorite ever. It’s hard to describe this beer specifically, but one word comes to mind: smooth. Absolutely no harshness at all in this beer, despite the noticable presence of hops. Roasted malt flavor with the barest hint of hops to balance the flavor, with almost no aftertaste. This beer would be outstanding with a meal, or by itself. Watch out though, it’s so easy to polish off three of these quickly without even realizing it. Another classic from New Glarus. rautyasu (1) - USA - DEC 11, 2005 does not count
This beer reminds me of some of the dunkels from Thuringia, Germany. This is an excellent beer accompanying food with bold flavors, given that it leaves the palate clean and ready for new experiences. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Thanks 1fastSTi. Pours a hazy brown body with a small tan head. Aroma is sugar, carmel and dark fruits. Flavors are carmel malts with a little brown sugar, nuts, and prunes. A little bit o’ hops in the finish. Not bad.
