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.

Pours dark orange and hazy with a short head that faded pretty quickly. Aroma was sweet, bready malt, with some slight fruity notes. Taste was pretty malty up front, but lots of fruity orangish flavors as well. As it warmed, more citrus and fruity flavors came forward. This one is a little old, but has held its own over time.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bought in the Beer Camp 12 pack, Fall 2014. Poured into a nonic at fridge temp.

Look: Hazy apricot bronze. Head disappears completely.

Smell: fruity, Jolly Rancher candies

Taste: fruity with a nice balance of earthy hops

Feel: solid. Modest carbonation welcoming and fitting to style.

Overall: Good but not exceptional/ Lack of lacing a drawback.
