Bottle courtesy of Iowaherkeye. Thanks!
Think I waited to long on this beer. Pours a bright clear reddish orange malt with a small beige head. Smell is sticky, stale, gooey malt with band aid qualities and metal. Probably not as it was intended. Unappealing malt flavor and metal as well.

Pours amber with a one finger white head, which fades quickly to a thin disc of foam, and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has grain and caramel malt.

Tastes like it smells with grain and some caramel malt. No hot presence. Kind of generic and bland.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and very little that stands out. New Glarus makes a lot of good beers, but this is not one of their better efforts.
