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 Wisconsins common sense Revolution.

coldmeat23 (232) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Pours a clear, golden brown color. Two-finger head of white foam. Retention is pretty good. Lacing is spotty, but decent. The nose is very light. Some grass, maybe some corn, and a light floral hint. Tastes of corn and barley notes. Light hints of grass and maybe some malts. Hint of hops, lightly. Ends with a weird, bitter twang, that is slightly off-putting. Light and crisp. If I liked macros, I think that I might like this one more. As it is, I dont really like it much, at all. I dont think Ill be having this one again.

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy gold with a nice off-white head. Nose is floral & spicy hops, some candied orange peel, very light toffee malt. Flavor is amazing floral & earthy hops - a bit of mint, a bit of honey, a bit of lemon. Perfectly rounded out by a nice crisp maltiness. Perhaps a bit sweet, but I bought this bottle a few months ago. I think the low score here comes from this being so unlike other APAs due to the Hallertau. Its more Kellerbier than APA & I love it.

From bottle courtesy of Dave F. Light bitter character in the nose, mild resin with little citrus or grassy character. Mild dusty grain and a bit of caramel sweetness. Medium amber body, very hazy, with thin off-white head. Medium bodied with high carbonation and light chalky finish. Starts with light acidity, mild bitter character and not much sweet character. Bit of grain and light caramel. Carbonic acidity with chalky finish and light astringent bitter.

GregClow (3346) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle via trade with rudolf. Nice hazy golden-orange with a large white head. Love the aroma - citrus and pineapple, some honey and grape must. Medium bodied. Flavour is not quite up the standard of the fantastic aroma, but still pretty nice, with a good balance and slightly toffeeish malt and orange & grapefruit hops. Easy to drink, and easy to enjoy.

madvike (3230) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle - Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. The smell is the best part of this beer -- sweet and fruity, with honey, grapes, and wheat. The taste is kind of weird -- the first couple sips were terrible, it mellowed out in the middle, and I poured the end of the beer into my wifes glass and moved on to something else. It tastes pretty smooth, with a mild malt and grain flavor, but theres really not much else. Stale-tasting hops dominate the finish, and kind of weight the beer down with blahness. Its medium-bodied, but a little too much carbonation dominates. I wanted to try it just because its New Glarus, but pretty mediocre overall.

Very light brown pour with a white head. Aroma of light malt, a little sweetness. Taste is mellow with a nice malty aftertaste. Very tasty beer, Well balanced and refreshing. Better than I thought, I almost decided to not buy it.
