Fairly clear, super easy drinking beer. Full flavor but not objectionable at all. Barley and wheat. Bright and a little bit fruity in the nose. This could be an staple in my fridge.

While I normally stay away from beers in this style, I'm glad I tried this, and it showed me how tasty and refreshing helles lagers can be. Really crisp and smooth, with a lot of yeast there to nicely compliment the breadiness of the beer. There's a touch of hop bitterness there too. The mouthfeel and drinkability made this an excellent session beer and one that I would have more often if it were available in Ohio.

An awesome summer beer that you can have many of without getting to drunk. The crispness of the beer that has a great yeast aftertaste is something anybody can enjoy after mowing the lawn or playing a round of golf, very refreshing.

12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present. Another new one to me from New Glarus, acquired a single bottle as part of a mixed six pack.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a crisp golden orange body with a finger of good frothy white head. Some good fat frothy strands of lacing. Good clarity for an unfiltered beer. Looks pretty damn nice per the style.

S - Aroma is crisp & clean. Creamy, grainy, & yeasty. A classic lager aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose: crisp, grainy, & yeasty. Good balance between the yeast and the earthy / herbal Bavarian hops. Grainy, but not husky or corny.

M - The feel is crisp, smooth, creamy, & yeasty. Very crisp & easy-drinking. Light-bodied with good carb.

Overall, another excellent delicious sessionable lager from New Glarus. Very recommended stuff if it is available to you. Would definitely be interested in acquiring more.

New Glarus Yokel -----4/5.

Amber/straw color. Think off-white head. Heavy yeast smell, minimal hops. Taste is bready, sweet with malt. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty good lager.
