A pour into a tulip glass reveals a clear amber color, topped with a full two-fingers of fluffy and creamy white head. The head sticks around for the party with good retention and tons of lacing.
Clean and crisp. Very nice balance between bready caramelized malts, lager yeast and some hops. There’s a little bit of both with a sweetness that may be more dominate. Maybe just a subtle hint of honey sweetness and citrus.
Soft and subtly sweet caramel malt, nutty, toasted grain, and a hint of floral hops. The malts really pop at the front, with just a hint of sourness lingering around the edges. The hops take over in the second half, providing some acidity and just a gentle bite of bitter at the end. Made in the style of a pilsener, there is not going to be anything to knock the socks off of most beer drinkers aside from the smoothness. Balance, balance, balance.
This is the one weakness I could find in this beer. Fairly benign mouthfeel; it has reasonable crisp but lacks a certain flair. It also seems a little thin. Finishes clean. I would have liked a bit more carbonation and body.
Well New Glarus managed to knock me over with a feather again. Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of the style. Another fine session beer with flavor and substance. Again, me only knock would be the thin mouthfeel.

A perfect balance of Bready Yeasts, Lemon Zest, Barley, Floral Hops and Malts make this a truly wonderful, crisp and refreshing Pilsener to drink. Beerjunkie15 (55) - Romeoville, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Overall an enjoyable beer. Amber in color, light in taste. Could have multiple of these in the summer. Crisp and clean

Golden amber with thin off white head. Mild caramel and mild floral aroma. Mild caramel, malt dominant, and German hop notes. Lite bodied, nice tongue tangling zing, and mild bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a amber orange with a white head. Nose of malt some grain. The caramel malts come on too strong and eclipse the crisp hoppiness that resides underneath. Less cara and sweet malts more of that simple two row to let those floral hops speak for themselves.

Pours a dark bronze with thin white head. Strong aroma of apples and I think I’m getting molasses as well. Tasting of plums and apples, very sweet. The plums fade near the middle and the apples come out a little more. Finishes very crisp with a little hopiness. If I had my own cold plate tap, I would put this through it and die happy. keenanrobbins (19) - - APR 29, 2012
A very nice pilsner. Aromatic, smooth, then a pleasing kind of pilsner finish. hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2012
Nice head. Crystal clear. Classic lager nose bready with malt in the background and some hops. Crisp and malty flavor with mild hops. Very clean flavor. Some bitterness on the finish.
