From a single into a willi becher. Pours a light honey-clover copper, with a nice 2 finger head, puffy and great retention.. Very bready nose with some round but light floral/earthy hops. Very bready and grainy (but not doughy). Moderate carbonation for the style, very smooth, very little bite from the hops, though they lively things up a bit. Not quite as crisp as I wish, but still plenty satisfying. Good stuff!

Pours a golden copper hue - crisp and effervescent. Thick off-white head initially, dissipates leaving some nice sticky lacing and a thin residual head.

Smell has aromas of cracker like malts, bread, floral hops, grass on a hot day, - the aroma is clearly a european pilsner style - clean crisp and simple.

Taste follows the nose with notes of bread, cracker, nice thick malty backbone, dried grass, a gentle floral flavor and honey. Its sweet, but compared to many American made pilseners its actually not all that sweet. Very well harmonized flavor between the malts and hops.

Feel is crisp and refreshing. Medium carbonation provides some nice pop on the tongue.

Overall this is a really fine brew. Great example of a Pilsener. Like everything New Glarus brews, it is simple, classic and done damn well.
