Notes/Commercial Description:
For beer folks, Chico, CA, and New Glarus, WI, are must-see capitals on the U.S. brewing map, but getting between the two is no simple feat. There and Back is named for the planes, trains, and zeal needed to connect them. This classic English-style Bitter is a complex yet easy-drinking mix of toasty malt and a fruity, herbal hop flavor.

New Glarus is fiercely loyal to its home state, growing to one of the largest breweries in the U.S. without selling a single drop outside of the borders of Wisconsin. With those local tastes in mind, New Glarus has perfected traditional German styles and invented masterful versions of complex and intense fruit beers featuring Wisconsin-grown ingredients.

Bottle poured into a wine glass and a straggler from the Beer Camp mix-o-case so has a few months on it. Pours a deep golden/orange with a finger of just off white soapy foam with good retention. Nicely carbonated and perhaps a bit robust for the style and mostly clear.

Aroma of noble hops and a bit of expected dated malts. Touch bready and with a light apple fruit note. Taste follows with a hint of lemon and a notable but balanced bitterness. Finish is fairly dry with a subtle hint of lemon sweetness and a balanced bitterness on the finish. Rather nicely done and finish is crisp and balanced for the style. Coarse and lightly bready on the finish yet expected given a relatively robust take on the style.

So it's bitter. Little aftertaste. Kind of a one trick pony. Just OK.
