4.13/5 rDev 0%
Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: The beer pours a clear golden/light amber with a finger of fluffy white head. There is a very little bit of lacing with a nice fluffy layer of head that remains on top of the pour.
Smell: This beer has a strong smell considering the low abv. A nice malt sweetness with a citrus peel/pine hop presence. There is some citrus fruit in the smell too, perhaps tangerine.
Taste: The malt is just enough to make this a very well balanced beer. The hops are crisp and full of pine notes. The finish is bitter like citrus peel.
Mouthfeel: Just on the thin side of medium body with smooth carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
Overall: This is a really solid pale ale. Well balanced and quite easy to drink. I'd be happy to have another.

Not just a pale ale, but an incredibly pale ale. This ale is so light in it's body and feel that the intensity of flavors is shocking.
Bold golden color with minimal head in the glass. A million tiny bubbles suspended with only minimal movement upward.
The aroma is pleasantly citrusy, almost grapefruit, seemingly more so than most pale ales, tending almost towards an IPA. But mouthfeel is so light and airy, with a quick bursts of flavor that slowly dissipate.
Overall, a tasty and refreshing brew from New Glarus.

A - clear golden yellow with a nice fluffy 1" of head, lots of lacing
S - fruity hops, a little bit of a soapy smell
T - piney, hoppy, crisp, citrusy - a very distinct taste than what i'm used to honestly, but it's really good
M - very crisp and smooth with a nice dry finish
O - i had this beer back on tour a few years ago, but don't really remember it.. it was nice to be able to taste it again - it's better than i obviously remember, though i remember favoring it out of the sampler pack back then as well!

Pours a clear, pale gold--straw-like color. Thin, off-white head. Some lacing.
Aroma is light citrus and pine hops. Bitter-sweet.
Upfront taste is a mix of citrus, pine, and grassy hops with a nice bitterness. Bready malt finish with some lingering hop bitterness that echoes the upfront taste. Simple but enjoyable.
Light to medium body with medium to high carbonation. Kind of foamy/frothy finish.
Lots of nice hop flavor for such a light beer. Good bitterness. Not digging the foamy body--kind of deters from the beer--but otherwise good.
