Pours a huge, dense, white head. Huge aroma of grassy hops and a bit of sweet malt behind that. A gorgeous dark gold color. Starts with a nice grassy hop bitterness that builds into a medium bitterness. It sits at this bitterness for a few seconds (which is unexpected). A huge wave of malt begins to well up, and takes this into a smooth bliss.

This is a really, really smooth lager. It has a fair bit of hop bitter in the front, and the malt finish is superb, but I find the middle to be a bit lacking. I prefer the profile of Totally Naked or Blonde a bit more. There is a good hoppiness and maltiness, but the transition between those two elements is just not up to par with typical New Glarus offerings.
Don't get me wrong; this is a VERY good brew. But it's not New Glarus's typical level of stellar.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into my New Glarus Pilsner glass.

A-Pours a great medium copper color with 1 inch head that recedes very quickly. Maintains a slight lacing as I drink. Great carbonation, just like most New Glarus beers.

S-Malts, herbs. Smell is kind of underwhelming.

T-Malt, Slight hops, crisp and clean, refreshing, wheat bread.

M- Enjoyed the mouthfeel/mouthful. A very full bodied beer to me for a Pilsner.

O- A very nice beer. I have never had a German Pilsner, or not that I know of. So comparing styles is a hard one for me. This is a very clean, crisp, and refreshing beer. Not a very light beer, but something that would be nice on a warm spring day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant medium brown with a one inch study white head that slowly dissipates, leaving spotty lacing.

Floral hops, corn, pilsner malt, and toasted bread form the aroma.

There's an underlying fruity character in the flavor, which becomes toasted breadcrust mid palate, finishing earthy and dry. Lacks the cracker-like flavor of pilsner malt, which was overtaken by the kilned malts.

Body is a touch watery, with carbonation on the high side.

Not your typical pilsner. Fairly light in mouthfeel, but the darker malts and unclean fruity character add more complexity than anticipated.

12oz. bottle poured into a standard pint.

Gorgeous light copper beer with one of the finer dense, classic white pilsner heads I've seen in a while.
Malt dominates the aroma, bready, slight hints of corn. Moderate noble hop presence.
This is a fine example of a dead on old world pilsner, minus the green bottle. Wonderfully simple, yet fabulously complex. Really malt dominated but crisply and cleanly finished.
First New Glarus I've gotten my hands on and I look forward to more.
Well done.
