Pours golden with a solid sheet of fine white foam, a little dark for the style. Smells of apple, grain, crsytal malt, some sweet corn and some bits of bitter, noble hops. Taste is smooth with some apple juice, some metal, some grain and bits of white grape juice over hay and standard lager flavors. Thin with low carb and a semi dry yet wet finish. An okay beer, very drinkable but lacks the assertiveness and lightness a fine pilsner should have. This is a lager, but not a pilsner.

Special thanks to my buddy Taylor who brought a New Glarus variety pack straight from Wisconsin all the way down here to Charleston. Thanks, Taylor!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass at fridge temperature.

L – Medium amber color with a 4-finger bubbly, frothy white head. Really nice retention and some good patchy lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles. The head characteristics and the clarity are there, but let’s face it – this is too dark for a German pils.

S – Bready, grainy, and cereal-like malts with earthy and herbal hops.

T – Starts off sweet with bready, grainy, cereal, graham cracker Pils malts. Spicy, herbal, earthy, floral noble hops start to appear mid-taste and build toward the finish.

F – Medium-bodied with great carbonation, a crisp mouthfeel, and a bitter and very dry finish. Spicy and dry herbal bitterness lingers nicely.

O – This is a really tasty pilsner, but I’m not sure how well it fits the German pilsner mold. Good German pilsners are very pale and have a touch of grainy malts, but most of the taste and mouthfeel is dominated by bitter hops. This particular beer, as evidenced by the color, has a much stronger malt presence than is indicated. Don’t get me wrong – it’s still a really good and drinkable beer. However, I think it would fit better in the Bohemian pilsner category. After checking New Glarus’ website, I can’t fault them on trueness to style (even on the appearance) since they list the beer as a “classic country lager.” The “German pilsner” is probably just the BA category that it happened to be boxed into. Regardless of any of that nonsense, this is a solid pilsner. Nice job, New Glarus.

Into my shiny new New Glarus pilsner glass.
Brown, copperish golden color. Nice carbonation, medium thick pils head. Head retention is good, slightly darker a typical German Pils.
Smell is great. Bready, weyermann malt, biscuit, Hallertau Hops to boot. Grass, grains, and pepper to add in the mix. A great lemony/ baked bread aroma.
Taste is truly beautiful.Dan Carey must have quite a bit of German blood in his veins after having this and the Dancing Man...clean, grassy, bread, pepper, lemon, Hallertau hops, perfect amount of maltiness mixed with a crisp pepper bite, and carbonation.
Mouthfeel is light, clean, bready, citrus refreshment..
Everything I look for in a great Pils.

A - Fairly dark for the style. Bronze color with a small, bubbly, foamy, white head. Disappears fairly fast leaving patches of lace.

S - Grainy and slightly caramel malt. Strong earthy and herbal hop aroma. Hints of floral and tea hop aroma with subtle orchard fruit.

T - Very tasty. Similar to the nose. Starts with a fairly strong malt base along with the tea and orchard fruit flavors (stronger than the nose). More herbal and earthy hops come out mid sip with a slightly bitter flavor. Slight tart apple underneath that as well. Sweetness from the malt comes on strong at the end with just a slight bitter bite.

M - Light to medium body. Plenty of carbonation. Wet and slightly sptritzy on the finish.

D - Very easy to drink and tasty as well. Flavors compliment each other well and the beer is well balanced. Great hop presence.

Notes: Really enjoyable, albeit different pilsener. Darker and slightly different flavors than what I expected. Hop profile is dead on and very tasty (also the hops have a significant presence/bite here). Really enjoyable and easy to drink beer. Recommended.

Brilliant copper color with a beautiful rocky white head.

Nose has plenty of toasted malt character and grape notes. Fresh hay and grass add to amazing nose.

Whoa! Simply amazing. Grass and toasted malts really shine. The malt character is out of this world. Medium mouthfeel and pleasant hop bitterness really round this out. Easy drinking and leaves a slight noble bitterness on the tongue.

I wasn't sure what to make of this lager at first but the label and description get the taste buds going. Thanks to Dave for bringing this down in the sampler pack. New Glarus made another stellar beer.
