Notes / Commercial Description:
You hold a session beer with a bright bold blend of five hops that flirt obligingly with the smooth malty backside. Don't let this one lay around it is brewed to be enjoyed today. Bold and engaging without pretense, because in Wisconsin you do not have to be extreme to be real.

12oz bottle, teku glass.

pours a crisp golden color with an inch and a half thick white head. Great lacing. Smell is crisp and lemony, with a good amount of hops too. Oh wow, the taste is superb. Great citrus flavors but not in your face, the same with the hops - a decent amount, just the right amount for a pale, but not overwhelming or in your face. Real good. Superb drinkability. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall an outstanding pale ale. Very much recommended.

Straw yellow to gold in color. Brilliant clarity. An inch of white foam rests on top. Cereal grain aroma is prevalent. I get a bit of some floral hop aroma, too. That's pretty much what I'm getting in the flavor. The mouthfeel is fairly neutral. This is a pretty basic beer with no frills.

12 oz. bottle into a tumbler.

A- Slight hazed burnt orange. Dense off white head. Nice lacing and great retention.

S- Citrus and pine aromas dominate the nose, but a sweet and grainy bread character linger in the background.

T- Light straw flavor, some bread, and some great pine and citrus.

M- Mild and smooth. Just barely a bitter finish. Less bitter than expected. The finish isn't dry and the bitterness doesn't hang around.

O- This is really good. Taste is great, the aroma is juicy and woodsy. Very nice, and once again not overly done. New Glarus can make some damn tasty, yet simple and mild beers.
