My favorite beer of all. Goes down smooth but still has some body to it. Problem is that they only sell it in Wisconsin which is a problem since I live in AZ now. I had to bring about 6 cases out with me before I moved. The color is fine and the mouthfeel is smooth.

A great Wisconsin Classic from New Glarus . One of my personal favorites. Nothing too special just a nice simple beer. 90% of the time I enjoy it from the bottle. On the rare occasion I will drink it from a pint glass. Either way it is a good beer if you are looking for quantity. Great Job!

Light fruity and vey and drinkable. Pours a light orange with a little cloudiness and a thin head.
