Served in a Nonic Pint Glass

Eyes
Clear amber-brown body capped off by an off-white foam cap… roughly two fingers deep. A decent amount of sticky lacing followed through.

Nose
Lots of nutty bread. Sweet malts also stood out.

Mouth
Toasted, bready grains were packed with great nut flavours. Hops quickly kicked in and prevented the malts from becoming too heavy. Not a lot from the hops but enough to balance this brew out, and then some. Medium-bodied. Light/Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel all around.

Overall
Great nutty brown ale!

Stay close to the restroom if your drinking these - they give my stomach a turn for the worse. Maybe that's because I have 12 of them in 1 sitting, I don't know. I tend to stay away these days - NG is better known for their fruit beer.

Another delicious beer from New Glarus. I have to admit, I was cracking mixed nuts and eating them while drinking the beer. I felt corny doing that but it was fun and certainly didn't hurt the flavor experience!
