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.
