Pours out bright amber brown and sits deep ruby-brown in the glass with a good sized tan head, fading to a faint skim, holding to the edges, few lacings.
Smells of lightly roasted malts, with specks of coffee here and there. Hints of cocoa and a mild nuttiness.
Tastes mildly sweet up front. Malts dominate, tossing out caramel, cocoa and deeply toasted bready crackery malts. Mild hops bitterness lends some grassy tones and supports the smooth, bready finish.
Nice, clean feeling beer with mild-moderate carbonation and a medium-full body.
Solid bock baby. Made for session drinking, perfect for savoring. Another reason why New Glarus kicks so much tail.

A - Heavy carbonation streams through this beautifully clear copper-colored brew, feeding it's lasting ivory head that shrouds the glass in heavy lace. Uff-da is picture perfect!
S - Hearty maltiness offers rich aromatics of baked bread and nuttiness followed by dry toast and a slathering of sweet caramel
T - Chewy caramel cubes offer sweetness through this densely malty brew that leaves heavenly baked bread and toasted wheat and nut bread lingering on the tongue despite it's otherwise clean lagered characteristic.
M - Even though the beer's heavy carbonation is seen streaming through the glass, Uff-da is ultra-smooth; almost creamy in texture, which goes perfectly with it's fuller body and clean finish that leaves light malt traces on the tongue.
O - New Glarus' Dan Carey is a brewing genius, especially when it comes to German style beer, which is no surprise considering his time spent across the pond. Uff-da is a pretty simple bock overall but it's lack of defect and flourishing bready and nutty malt profile make it damn delicious. This beer is one of the best examples of the style you can lay lips on.
