Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent head the recedes quickly leaving no lace as I sip away. Smell is slightly sweet with grainy malts and light hops character. Taste is on par with the aroma. Grainy, malty, slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied, with good carbonation. Very light and easy to drink. Perfect for the summer!

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a clear yellow color. Produced a nice cap of white foam. Good retention and lacing too.

(S)- A sharp grainy hay and biscuit with its of a honey, lemon peel sweetness.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A sharp grainy maltiness with a subtle honey sweetness.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Subtle sweetness and dry grainy balance as well.

(O)- Overall, its always great to be able to depend on a brewery like New Glarus to deliver a solid to great beer. Highly drinkable and sessionable while still providing good flavors and smoothness.
