From notes on 6/13/15

On tap at the beautiful New Glarus brewery. Love the aroma of this beer. Reminds me of that smell during brew day. So much delicious malt aroma. Taste is heavy on the malt too. Just a good solid beer.

Yokel pours a golden color with a small, but ever lasting head. A skunky aroma. The taste is is very crisp, nice malt flavor. Nice feel, a weaker body. Overall. its a lighter but crisp hells lager. Its nice, not great.

Appearance: Brilliant, crystal clear, and golden in color. Pours with about a finger or two of very bubbly foam before the head recedes, moderate lacing observed.

Smell: Has a very noticeable crisp, clean scent. Underlying herbal notes from the hops complement it nicely, and the barest hint of malts can be picked up.

Taste: Similar to the scent; the taste is clean and crisp, rounded out quite nicely by the hops. And though they give some noticeable herbal notes, they don't contribute all that much bitterness to he beer. The malt presence is very minimal until the end of a sip, where they leave a pleasant and lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Very light and easy drinking, with carbonation that buzzes pleasantly across your tongue.

Overall: I tend not to be the biggest fan of lighter beer, usually preferring maltier options. But I certainly enjoyed this offering. There's a bit more complexity to the flavor than one might expect, and it would certainly be a welcome drink on a hot summer day.

Pours a clear golden straw in color, topped with an off white head. Clarity is near-excellent.

Bready malts on the nose, along with a lighter, classic lager yeast character. Clean, bready, lightly yeasty, but quite neutral as it should be.

Fairly sweet on the first sip, but with the breadiness backing it up all the way to the tail end of the drink. Creamy. Sweetness doesn't overwhelm and in no way is this a cloying beer, as there's a crispness that is so subtle that you might miss it.

Very good mouthfeel and excellent drinkability.

A very good, very clean lagerbier and a great rendition of a classic style.

Looks great. Very bready aroma, bit of honey, some corn smell (though I'm sure there's no corn in the mash). Flavor follows but I'd like more noble hop spice; the sweetness is a bit too present and needs to be tempered. Regardless, totally crushable ... feels like a slightly warm spring or fall evening beer to me with that bready sweetness.
