3.95/5  rDev +3.1%

poured into a pint glass

appearance: dark amber with a 1" white foamy head

aroma: soft nose of cider/apple and yeast

palate: oh so smooth. light carbonation, milky sweet and medium bodied. goes down very nicely

taste: great pilsener flavors with some light fruity backgrounds

overall: honestly, im not a huge fan of pilsener styles, but i can recognize quality when i come across it. this is a great brew and a solid choice at any time. goes down very easy, but enough flavor to satisfy. another great one by NG!

This pours a nice clear amber with a tight half inch of eggshell head that has endurance and pretty good cling. Great malt quality to the nose, with a nice roastiness that's tempered by some hop zest and a bit of sweetness. The taste has nice complexity while remaining straightforward and very drinkable. The malts really pop at the front, with just a hint of sourness lingering around the edges. The hops take over in the second half, providing some brightness and just a bit of bitter at the close. Very nicely balanced. The mouthfeel is great for a beer of this style--a heavier body is complemented by nice carbonation. This one is creamy and clean.

This beer has been growing on me since I first tried it in a sampler pack a few months ago. Definitely one of the best traditional pilseners I've ever had. It's amusing to take a drink of Miller Lite and follow it with this, by the way. Interestingly enough, I've also found that a good many steady BMC drinkers really enjoy this beer, so you might think of buying your non-craft-drinking buddy a sixer of this sometime.

500 mL bottle tried 23 Oct 2010. Courtesy of ratatat and S, thank you! Served in the Seabright 20th Anniversary mug (I'll still give you hell about that Phil!).

Large thick light yellow head. Lightly carbonated. Clear golden yellow. Mineral aroma, along with sweet grains and a light fruity tartness. Starts with lots of sweet graininess. Slightly lemony. Touch of bitter lemon pith. Medium body and ethanol. Light mineral finish and aftertaste. Slight lingering grainy sweetness.

They should put this in six packs and make it a year round offering.

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-light copper colored with about a finger of head that leaves some good lacing as it fades away

S-a little carmel and nut roasted malts

T-more taste than the smell. A lot of carmel, bready malt, crackers and a little honey sweetness before a crisp hop finish

M-light bodied with good carbonation

O-well balanced with good flavor and easy to drink

2.7/5  rDev -29.5%

A - TONS of fluffy white head, lots of lacing, deep copper color

S - lightly hoppy, well banecd malts

T - not much there as far as any distinctve tastes go. kind of disappointing, it is a bit tangy/citrusy though and leaves a sweet aftertaste in the mouth

M - very smooth on the palate, goes down very easily

O - overall, it's a good anytime beer. not quite sure the abv on this one, but i'd be careful since it seems easy to drink this one down fast and easy

4.6/5  rDev +20.1%

Twelve-ounce bottle poured into a New Glarus Pilsener glass.

A: Pours a deep golden/amber hue, almost copper, with a fluffy off-white head that settles quickly to a thin foam on the surface. Lacing is sticky, but not so much that it dries on the glass. Etching in the bottom of the glass gives off fine carbonation, almost Champagne-like.

S: Biscuit-like malt profile blends with just a touch of caramel and hops lend floral, grassy aromas.

T: caramel and fresh, bready malt tones up front, with just a hint of fruitiness. Perfectly balanced out on the finish, with grassy, floral hop notes. Finish is exceptionally clean.

Notes: Fuller in body for the style with yet a very lively mouthfeel. The balance of hops and malt is unlike any lager I have ever had. This is a session brew for all seasons. An extremely well-made brew from the folks at New Glarus. Each sip has me wanting more.

12 oz. bottle.

Medium copper body. Clear and clean. Half inch of creamy, off-white head. Some lacing. Bready, biscuity malts mix with honey and grassy, slightly herbal, hops.

Toasted malt up front. Sweetish, biscuity bread malt settles in. Moderately bitter, grassy, noble hops blend in smoothly. Hint of honey near the clean, crisp finish. Lingering vegetal hops and biscuit malt. Moderate body, with a nice, crisp feel. A very well-made, easy drinking lager.

4.2/5  rDev +9.7%

A: Clear copper in color. Forms a small off white head that quickly reduces to nothing but a thin ring around the edges. Some very light lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly malts: whole-wheat bread, toast and a little caramel. Some light, grassy, European hops.

T: Very nice. A blend of light caramel malts and a very smooth toastiness. Very mild sweetness and a pleasant nuttiness. Light, but noticeable, grassy hops on the finish. Very nice.

M: On the lighter side of medium with appropriate carbonation and a light bitterness.

O: The flavor on this one is stunningly good. Very easy drinker and a far better than average beer.
