3.5/5 rDev -9.1%
(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear golden orange body with a lumpy pale white head supported by loose chains of tiny bubbles.
S- The clean aroma has hints of DMS dried corn that grows as it opens but otherwise a very clean aroma.
T- The clean flavor has a touch of sweetness to the pale malt flavor with a faint buttery note that grows a bit as it warms. There is a slight tart hop note in the finish.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that grows as it warms.
O- This beer is not real crisp but is pretty clean with a touch of sweetness but not enough character to make it sessionable.

4.03/5 rDev +4.7%
Appearance - crisp, golden, strawlike yellow from this pour with very little lacing or head.
Smell - holy farm smell to it. Lots of oats and straw and smells like a brewery on a brewing day
Taste - crisp, light, easy, cereal flavor to it
Mouthfeel - very easy to drink and leaves easily as well
Overall - a true pils and quite refreshing! I could see myself having a few of these

A: A brilliantly clear golden colored beer with a pillowy bright white head, great retention. Thick chunky laceing down the NG pilsner glass with each sip. And the bubbles rocketing up from the WI logo at the bottom are a nice touch.
S: Bready grainy pilsner malt aroma balanced with spicey noble hops. Very clean smelly hop aroma.
T: Everything is well balanced in the flavor off this beer. The hop bitterness is moderate and flavor is consistant with the noble aroma but never becomes over powering or fatigueing. The clean, crisp fermentation character is very similar to lagers i've had from germany (Wyeast 2124?). And the malt complexity is there even though its probably only pilser malt. Bready, almost sweet but thats not the correct word and grainy (but in a good way).
M: The light to moderate body makes it very drinkable. Moderate carbonation. Refreshing!
O: I've been diving in to the german/czech pilsners/lagers latley and with NG redily available in WI what a high bar to set. I've had examples from germany that have been sitting on a shelf but don't quite stack up.. this is a winner all the way.

I enjoyed this beer a lot. I think New Glarus has made at least a dozen beers that are better than this one. I think they should try their hand at another Czech Pilsener in the future.
Still, an enjoyable beer that would hold its own against the VAST majority of American-brewed Czech style Pilseners

A: Crystal clear medium-amber body under two inches of frothy off-white head. Tremendous retention and lacing. Gorgeous.
S: Rich, fresh doughy maltiness dominates, with toastiness and fruitiness playing major roles. Some leafy, herbal, and citrusy hops as well. Quite nice.
T: Bread dough up front, with delightfully fresh maltiness. Chewy, rich, and substantial. Leafy hops lend bitterness to the finish, balancing out the major malt. Excellent example of the style.
M: Smooth, light-to-medium body with moderate, lively carbonation. Good.
O: If there was a problem with this beer it was that it just had too much richness for a Pils, with the flavorful, fresh maltiness overwhelming any attempt at refreshment. I'm never one to complain about too much of a good thing, though, and highly recommend this to anyone open to experiencing how wonderful a rich Bohemian lager can be.
