12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. No freshness dating.

A - Brilliant light amber beer. Good sized vanilla colored head. Left no lacing on the glass.

S - I can pick out the light pilsner malt and the nice blends of light toasty munich malts. The hops are spicy/earthy and I can also pick up a hint of cinnamon.

T - The flavor follows suit starting with beautiful munich malts that are never sweet on my palate. Mid-taste you will find the great noble hop flavors that never reach too high of bitterness. The hop flavor lasts a little bit after the finish pleasantly.

M - Semi-dry, lIght body. The carbonation is moderate. Clean throughout and has a crisp finish.

O - The munich malts in this beer reminded me much more of a German Oktoberfest. The color through me off a bit also. The cinnamon I perceive gives the beer complexity yet nowhere near stole the show. The beer tasted fantastic but I find it difficult categorizing the creative twists this offers. I scored the beer well because I recognize this beer is intentionally brewed out of style and I appreciate the craft exemplified.

Poured from bottle into a Pilsener shaped glass

A - Beer pours with a beautiful white colored frothy head, about one finger in size; very well carbonated; body is very transparent and has a nice copper color to it; no lacing at all; head holds pretty well

S - Roasted and bread malt nose; semi-sweet; classic lager crisp airiness and refreshing smooth malt scents; corn and touch of scotch or oak; nutty

T - Smooth roasted malt taste; bread; biscuit; touch of floral rose; nut flavor washes away rather quickly; taste like a lager should

M - Smooth and thin, not very effervescent; touch of bitterness rests at the end of the sip

D - Very easy drink; pleasant roasted malt taste; a fantastic lager experience

poured into a glass stein.

Appearance: orangish amber bodied beer almost has a copper hue. Huge white fluffy head thats easily 3 fingers high. Head drops slowely and looks clumpy; stick every where on the side of the stien.

Smell: Its a fairly malt forward lager. It reminds you of an octoberfest lager. Little grainy and bready. Touch of sweetness and fruitiness. Corn and rice hulls.

Taste: It starts with a light fruit note of apples and maybe white grapes. Transitions quickly to the grainy malts about the middle of the drink. Its a touch bready while still remains sweet. Maybe a faint honey note in there too. Finishes with a touch of bitterness thats both grassy and floral. Little fruity sweetness sneeks back into the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderately high carbonation. Crisp, refreshing beer. You can tell its bottle conditioned beer since it is very well carbonated. Super easy drinking beer and thirst quenching.

Overall: A great german lager, not boring at all. Wonderful option here from New glarus for a hot summer day that you are out being active. You can tell that Dan Carey learned how to brew in Germany.
