Unrelated to the rating, if you leave one of these in the fridge for 18-24 months, it develops some really nice barleywine notes.

A very nice lager from New Glarus (as usual), but for a Czech Pilsner, I prefer a stronger Saaz presence. Color is golden, and beer is nearly clear. Produces a thick white head that persists. Smell is sweet malt and very subtle. Tastes delicious, just a very nice lager malt flavor. This would be perfect on a hot summer day.

A-Clear deep yellow, almost a light orange. One finger head and some carbonation.

S-Wheat, bread, toast, slight grass but not much else.

T-Rather bread/toast/wheat forward. Some very slight grass and lemon. Not much if any bitterness though.

M-Lighter with nice carbonation.

O-This beer grew on me as I drank it. Still not a Pils fan but this beer was decent.
