Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent head the recedes quickly leaving no lace as I sip away. Smell is slightly sweet with grainy malts and light hops character. Taste is on par with the aroma. Grainy, malty, slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied, with good carbonation. Very light and easy to drink. Perfect for the summer!

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a clear yellow color. Produced a nice cap of white foam. Good retention and lacing too.

(S)- A sharp grainy hay and biscuit with its of a honey, lemon peel sweetness.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A sharp grainy maltiness with a subtle honey sweetness.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Subtle sweetness and dry grainy balance as well.

(O)- Overall, its always great to be able to depend on a brewery like New Glarus to deliver a solid to great beer. Highly drinkable and sessionable while still providing good flavors and smoothness.

A- Clear straw yellow body, two finger white head with great lacing. Looks incredibly refreshing, especially when waiting outside for Wild Peach to be poured...

S- Clean grainy pale malt, earthy lager yeast. Not complex, but it's very well executed.

F- Very refreshing grainy pale malt, lager yeast, plenty of noble hops.

M- Smooth, medium in body, substantial with good carbonation. Noble earthy hops on the finish.

O- This is well done and I'm happy to be a Wisconsin resident for easy access to beers like this.

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
