4/5 rDev +0.5%
A- it poured a lightly hazy golden yellow with a two finger fluffy head. Wonderful sticky lacing
S- I could smell pale malts, bready yeasts and some mildly bitter hops. A little honey sweetness was there as well.
T- I could taste the bread and wheat notes right away. Some sweetness from the malts and a bit of honey. There was a bit if citrus there as well. The hops came in towards the back. Well balanced and really enjoyable
M- crisp & dry with a good amount of carbonation. Moderate mouthfeel with a medium finish.
O- I'm not really big on pilsners, but I could drink this all day. Really well balanced and just plain enjoyable

Bottle into New Glarus Signature Pilsner
A- Golden-yellow, two and a half finger white head.
S- Light hops, slightly funky malt aroma
T- Moderate hop bitterness, very pleasant carbonation, delicious fresh malty flavor.
M- moderately thick
O- excellent, well bittered pilsner, but still with a "backbone" of malt, as the bottle says. A great, relaxed drinker from New Glarus.

Quickly frothed up and then dissipated mostly to leave a layer of foam and some nice lacing. Very little rising carbonation, only come to life after a sip. Deep yellow, quite clear.
Smell is fresh, floral, hoppy, slight grain, bit of lemon rind hanging in, some sweet malt as it warmed.
Hops are noticeable, bitter, slightly green tasting. Finish is where malt shows up and pulls it together, so this beer has character without going in one single direction. Hops are bitter, bright, floral, slightly metallic.
This beer is so smooth, easy to sip that it goes down fast without being boring. Carbonation is there, as the beer is drank carbonation opens up on the palate and its foaminess complements the medium-light body. Aftertaste left some dryness.
Great drinkability. Medium-light body, tasty, enough hop character to make it interesting, smoother on the finish. Need to find this on tap somewhere.
