Pour a nice golden color with a nice white fluffy head, there is a nice hop bitterness in the finish. There is some lacing left in the glass. Overall a good that is worth a try.

Aroma is fairly sweet, toasted, and nutty malt, with soft floral accents.

Flavor is more grainy than expected, worth floral honey sweetness and a dry, toasted malt finish.

One of a couple New Glarus beers I haven't tried since joining BA. Decent lager for pre-wood-splitting. This would be an excellent gateway beer for anyone looking to move on from macro swill. Well done per usual, NG.

Toasty, creamy blonde lager, comes off like a super helles. There's a sweet note, but a balanced finish. I get a small touch of apple and very mild earthy hops. It's refreshing yet a bit warming thanks to 6%. Overall a subtle but fun beer.

honey colored, with a thin head.

floral honey and hops aroma with some graininess. smells a bit like spring, which i suppose works on a winter's day.

honey and malt in the taste, but not much else. kind of one note here.

medium body and clean.

i wouldn't go out of my way to find this one, but i'll drink the 6 i have and be ok with it.
