Fantastic Lager, the best that I have ever had. It has a beautiful crystal clear coppery color. Smells and tastes very smooth. It has a rich dark color but a light body, great for summer. There is a very low bitterness, just enough to complement the malts. Can't say enough good about this lagered sweetheart of a beer.

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 22 June 2014

Appearance: Significantly darker than I was expecting for a German pils. This one almost has the same depth of color as an IPA, but is more topaz colored than amber. Pours with a nice one finger head that really sticks around. No lacing.

Smell: Smells sweet and "beery" with a light touch of spicy noble hops.

Taste: Really a great pilsner all around. The malts are a bit sweet for my taste, but do add a nice breadiness and depth of flavor. The hops are assertive in flavor but not to the point where it is out of style. The hop-malt interplay becomes more complex as the beer warms, providing new flavors and a richer experience rather than the flavor being affected negatively as the temperature changes.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation. Feels nice and full on the tongue.

Overall: A marvelous craft lager from New Glarus, a brewing company well known for their traditional styles. This is a good US produced German pilsner, but I would have liked to see a more significantly bitter brew to make it truly old-world in style. Nonetheless, for lager lovers, this is a must try.
