Notes/Commercial Description:
Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

I suppose every brewery has to consider a concession to the macro patron. The challenge is to come up with something flavorful and non-offensive, and tough combination. New Glarus got the non-offensive part right, but flavorful . . . not so much. Nice bright and clean malt flavor, with a distinct lean toward grain. Low hops level is appropriate for the style, but here the hops seemed washed-out.

Girlfriend brought these back for me from her trip to Milwaukee. 12oz brown bottles with no freshness date. They ran $10 a 6pk.

The beer poured a mostly clear pale yellow color and made a big 2½-finger fluffy whiute head that lasted and lasted, well over 3 minutes before I could drink it. It also left a moderate amount of lacing on the glass.

Hardly any smell to this. Faint pale malt and floral hop aroma.

This is a light, clean, crisp, and refreshing lager. It's not going to win any awards for flavor, but it's still good. Mild dose of pale malt sweetness with perhaps a kiss of honey. Hops are floral without a trace of bitterness.

Super light body bordering on watery, but very crisp carbonation gives it a refreshing kick.

At just 4.25% abv. these go down so easy and would be great on a hot summer day.

Bottle from a sampler pack.

With many breweries switching to their heavier brews in accordance with the season change ti's nice to take a break with a lighter brew with less calories.

It is definitely pale. A light, transparent gold color with lots of carbonation. It's aroma is light, with hints of straw and hops. The taste is crisp, with a bit of citrus. It goes down very easy with little aftertaste. I like this one, it's light, tasty, and unoffensive. Nice job, guys!
