poured 12oz bottle into shaker pint.

A- Brilliant, clear golden Pilsner color with a big 2 finger white head. It fades into a thick collar and leave behind spotty lacing.

S - Solid malt backbone with barley and floral, earthy hops. Yeast, biscuit, and cracker prevail.

T - Malt, yeast, noble hops, and barley. Hints of floral earthy hops. Some biscuit, cracker, and maybe a touch of tart fruit in the back.

M - Light and refreshing, crisp and clean. Whets the palate with a smooth and creamy finish anytime of year.

O - This is the first beer that New Glarus released in Nov. 1993 and it still is one of the better Pilsners brewed in the US. Truly a timeless classic.

Though this is an overlooked style, a well-balanced pilsener is tough to find. I woud recommend this to be among the best. The beer was a golden yellow color when poured into a glass. The aroma was a biscuity beer aroma, that is what your grandfather's beer smelled like, but better. On the initial taste, one detects smooth grassy notes with a mild creaminess. Mild notes of lemon are hidden in the background. The carbonation is well-balance and not overly aggressive. The Earthy grass of the aftertaste lingers in the mouth for an appropriate duration before it is swept away by the carbonation. Edel-Pils is a nice smooth, easy drinker.

A: Beautiful pour. A deep golden tone with a 2 inch head that dissipates quickly.

S: Brings back memories from Packer games, but belies the fact that it's not just another crappy beer. Really great hoppy smell but very mellow taste for the strong and distinct hop smell.

T: Taste is just a straight up solid pilsner. Not a lot of hop, just enough depth without being too much. Light and simple.

M: Not too much carbonation. Feels just right.

O: One of my favorite beers. New Glarus really has their act together on this one, per usual.
