COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since 1516 Brewers have led the purity revolution. They mandated only four natural ingredients be used to brew beer. This Reinheistgebot law was the first ever food purity regulation and New Glarus Brewmaster Dan Carey has consistently respected our palates by employing yeast, water, barley and hops to explore a wide spectrum of flavor. Today Dan pushes the purity envelope by using Organic Hallertau Hops from Germany with Wisconsin organically malted barley to create a complex and assertively hoppy golden ale. This beer is even natrually carbonated, 100% bottle fermented means you can expect a flavor celebration to dance cleanly across your palate. Raise your glass and toast to Wisconsin’s common sense Revolution.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. Has a sweetish malty grainy hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty flavor with some weak hoppy hints. Has a sweetish malty hoppy finish.

So, drinking an organic beer is like sterilizing the needle before a lethal injection, or eating diet food at McDonalds. The two just don’t compute, but it’s fun to give it a try anyways. New Glarus Organic Revolution is a delicious beer, organic or not. A real winner!

Faint yellow pour with a thin white head. Not much aroma present. The body is somewhat thin, with a crisp, refreshing palate. Very little taste, just some faint citrus near the end. A bit watery, but this does make me think "fresh". A decent session brew.

Pours a slightly hazy gold. Small aroma of cereal grains and hops. Taste is pretty basic. Corn, barley, hops, yeast, beer. Decent body, good balance. Can’t say anything bad about it. First orgainic beer I’ve had.

bottle-sampled this many times over the past 3 years. bright orange witha small foamy white head. nose is somewhat non-descript, but includes light biscut, sweet hops, and spicy notes. green hop flavors-organic and green! some nice yeast twang (a characteristic of this brewery) shows up in the palate that makes me think this is a lager for some reason. nice hoppy/spicy finish. great sessionable beer. Why the low ratings? another case of big beer bias? i guess. New Glarus-one of my top 5 fav american brewers.

I’m not sure of a reason to drink this beer except for sessions. There isn’t much flavor except a really faint aftertaste. Don’t bother.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Beer pours a hazy yellow color. Smells more like a wheat beer than a pale ale, with no detectable hop smell. Taste is a little citrus and malt. There is a little hop presence, but not much. A nice, very drinkable beer but not what I was expecting from an American Pale Ale.

Organic is fine, but I don’t fetishize it, and there are some areas where organic usually produces worse results (that’s particularly true in high-end chocolates). Here the problem isn’t the organic ingredients, I suspect, but the basic beer. I didn’t think I would see this beer called an "American Pale Ale" when I went to look it up--I just drank it with my brother-in-law for the pre-present opening Christmas libations. It is definitely more well rounded than a kolsch--I thought, "hmmm, a touch of Belgian ale here?"--mostly because the finish gives such a dry hoppiness and slight vegetal quality. I can definitely see the influence of the Hallertau hops, which are not a favorite of mine. Yellow and overall plain complexion, including the palate, which is moderately bubbly.

Bottle from biggcb. Dirty gold color that’s topped with a moderate off-white head with just a few patches of retention. The aroma is airy; some caramel, grains, floral notes and fruit but it’s a really mild scent. Easy drinking beer, probably a decent drink after some yard work, whatever, but the flavor is overall watery and bland and pretty much in line with the aroma. Caramel and doughy malts. Hops are resiny with a splash of citrus. Very little bitterness. Drinkable but not a lot there and it takes some digging to figure out what’s going on.

3.4
Block (2722) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Brown pour. Tastes great. Very easy to drink. Nice balance between the sweet malts and a slight hop finish. Some particulate. I honestly didn’t expect much from this beer and I thought the "organic" tag was only there as a gimmick but this beer is really good.
