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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Crystal clear straw to lemony yellow. A finger or two of nice fluffy head. A very pretty bear.

Smell: Pretty clean, mostly malt with a bit of herbal of floral and a bit less than that herbal hoppiness.

Taste: Clear and brisk lager. Some grassiness. Well balanced malt and hops throughout with just a faint hint of citrus to go with the herbal and floral hops. Just a touch of bitterness, again in perfect balance, and a dry finish.

Moutfeel: Light lager body, just the right amount of carbonation.

This beer is everything a basic lager should be. And is the perfect reminder that a well executed basic lager is not boring or bad. Beer this clean is unforgiving when it comes to hiding mistakes and shortcuts, and this shows none.

If I lived in Wisconsin my fridge would always be stocked with this, particularly in the summer months.

A New Glarus sampler from my mom for Christmas? Best gift in years? We'll see.

i have been struggling with beers lately trying to find one that i didn't get sick of after finishing just one. This is a very easy drinking beer.
Light urine appearance, light lacing, yet prominent with each drink.
The smell is light but just enough of a floral-hay combo. It reminds me exactly of some beer i can't think of at the moment....it's killing me. Taste is nice, nothing at first, smoothing out to a match to the smell throughout.
A solid lager. If they were closer to NC, it could fall into the light drink rotation.
