3.4/5 rDev -7.1%
Poured a very pale yellow with an inch of white foam that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Smell is fairly neutral with corn elements and a very light floral hop. Taste is essentially bland and inoffensive, somewhere a half-step up from a macro lager corn and grain and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and the carbonation is medium crisp. It's refreshing and not filling.

12 oz bottle poured into a footed pilsner glass.
It pours a crystal clear pale straw with a pillowy white head. The head dies down to a small layer of bubbles in top, lacing is medium and nice tiny bubbles are constantly rising to the surface.
The aroma is very neutral. Some grainyness and sweet corn with a very crisp lager finish.
The flavor is more corn dominant. It has a nice mild sweetness but finishes very crisp like a very drinkable lager should.
To me this is a just a step up in flavor from the standard BMC. It doesn't have much flavor but what it has is a compliment to the beer. To me this beer is for those that want to drink or be seen drinking craft but think Spotted Cow has too much flavor.

A- Lazy pour yields 2 fingers head. Completely transparent yellow. Crystal clear.
S- Metallic lager tinge. That's all.
T- I think people that give this beer a low score are forgetting what it is supposed to be. It is a common thing here.YOU KNOW what New Glarus can do with their beers, so obviously they chose to make this beer what it is, a session lager. If I lived in WI I would have a case of these in the fridge for everyday drinking all summer.
Taste is refreshing, just a bit of apple, sour.
M- Crisp, clean, a sweet aftertaste.
O- This was a favorite of mine in college when I knew pretty much nothing about beer, now I now barely something and I still like it.

Roommate brought a sixer back from Wisconsin. Pours as pale as any beer I have ever seen. About a centimeter of white head that leaves some spotty lacing, but not much at all. At first there seems to be a bit of off notes, but it sort of dissipates. Now I notice some grassy hop notes and a very light mildly bready aroma. Taste is very very light crisp and refreshing. Mildly bready as well, grassy, floral, earthy hop notes, but all very light and subtle. Mouthfeel is exactly where it should be. Light and refreshing with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer. Enjoyable crisp and refreshing.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a becker glass.
A: Clear, pale golden color with two fingers of fluffy white foam that diminishes to a quarter-sized berg. Extensive speckled lacing remains on the glass and tiny bubbles rise in many steady streams through the column.
S: crisp water crackers and grassy hops that show some green herbaceous notes as well as dry hay. A trace of sulfur is detected, tasteful rather than over-stated.
T: Begins dry, with muted herbaceous hop aromatics that seem to be all by themselves at first. Acidity is mild into the middle, where malt is more toasty and delicately fruity. A whiff of understated pilsner malt lingers into the finish while other flavors clear out quickly.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, balanced on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: While the flavor profile lacks the urgency of the better pilsners, with a hop presence that is too timid, it does not transmit any suggestion of corn. It generally lacks interest, with the exception of the aroma, although it drinks effortlessly.

Crystal clear yellow with a bone white head that has great contrast with the body.
The smell is grainy with a light floral hop presence that reminds me of lilacs.
The taste is rather ordinary, but so goes the style. Grainy, grassy, and ever-so-slightly floral.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with average carbonation.
A good but simple beer. It's hard to do anything interesting with a lager, but it's a solid beer despite that.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Pilsener glass.
A: Very pale, clear straw color with a foamy white head that holds very well. Lively carbonation, with decent lacing.
S: Hints of cracker and straw, along with some floral hop undertones.
T: Honey and biscuit malt notes, with some lemon up front, followed by grassy, floral hop flavors that lend the beer a very clean, drying finish.
Notes: This is an awesome beer for the style. Light to moderate in body, clean, and extremely balanced. Easy as all hell to drink. This is a beer that would fit perfectly in the holder of my John Deere while tooling along across the yard.
