best out of the tap. Doesn’t finish the greatest and its flavor is pretty good, it is a drinkable beer. undsioux7 (876) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head that dissapates quickly.
Aroma of lemon and Tang. Yes I said Tang. Decent mouthfeel with a very reserved corn, orange, soap taste that finishes with a wimper. Not much there but not bad either. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pours very cloudy yellow with a small white head. The aroma is lemon, bready with a touch of spice. Flavor is semi-sweet, soap, lemon and banana. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Blah. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2006
12oz - thanks for the freebie Hopscotch - Aroma of yeast, wet hay, lemon, and a bit of hops. Pours cloudy yellow with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma and is what the rural midwest would taste like if it was bottled. Palate is clean and tart. More than I expected. This is quite a tasty summer brew. locarboy (129) - USA - JUN 10, 2006
12 oz bottle from the woodman’s beer cooler in kenosha. My bro tells me this is the brewery’s best seller in WI. The nod to Wisconsin corn farmers seems to be more than a nod. What is a nod exactly? Kinda sweet, like a miller high life. This brewery makes some far more interesting beers. I give them credit for realizing that they have to have something that is a big seller to promote the label. Needs more barley malt and more hop complexity IMHO. Drinkable, but not worth their other beers.

Want to pound beer after beer after beer...This is the stuff. Nice cloudy color, excellent on a hot day. No weird flavors just good well balanced easy drinking beer And the label is great too, just as all New Glarus beers are. ClarkVV (6873) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Late 2005 bottle from StewardofGondor, consumed on 5/30/06.iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Very fruity nose, but not your typical fruits. Here I get mainly banana, nectarine and light peach, the banana being the strongest. The fruits are smooth, probably smoothed out by the flaked barley, which creates a soothing effect on the nose, but yet keeps things dry and does have a little hint of graininess on the end. I don’t find any of the corn, at least in the nose. Some vanilla hints from yeast biproduct and a nice zesty dryness on the end, thanks to some lightly bitter hops, that add a very mild citrus. Almost feel like I find some bubble gum and other esters, but I’m not sure.
The flavor is reserved, with the smoothness from the flaked barley keeping things soft in the mouth, and dry, but still a touch of moderately chewy graham crackers, with a light drizzle of lemon-flecked honey. Corn does not seem to provide much flavor, but there is a light sharpness that could be attributed to it. Nectarine notes and pale sugars build up slightly, but the yeast is rather dull and blanding, with a fair amount of water in the wort keeping things somewhat loose.
Bottle conditioned, but attempting to leave the yeast behind provides a glowing unripened peach body with strong straw tints. Head is fizzy and fully dissipating, being composed of large bubbles, light canteloupe in color. Another session beer from New Glarus and certainly well brewed and drinkable.
Pours a hazy light golden with a small eggshell head. Aroma of sweet malts, grain, and corn. taste is more corny and grain than anything else, just a little bit of sweet malts in the finish. A little tartness halfway through. Good for what is, but cream ales just aren’t that interesting. vyvvy (6735) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Thanks to TannerTavernBoys for sharing this one. Pour is hazy yellow with a white head. Not a very strong aroma, mainly light malt with some cream and something odd I can’t put my finger on. Taste has a lemon cream and is medium bodied with a frothy carbonation. There is also so pale malt husk taste in there. Fairly boring beer, but no offensive.

Pale lager flavor with the body of an ale. Somewhat grainy consistency, flavors of pale malts and corn. Unassuming hops back it up. All of this may sound like a knock on this beer, but for what this beer is, it is pretty damn good. An unassuming, easy to drink pale lager style beer with body and charachter. Solid.
