A: Pored into a standard pint glass it was poured with about an inch of head on it, but it quickly receeded and left a light chunky egg shell colored foam around the edge and sides. The liquid a briliantly clear light copper color.

S: Strong spicey noble and earthy hops plume off the top with an underlying malty bready grainy malt aroma.

T: Flavor is on the malt side but the bitterness is noticable and distinct. There is a sweetness that is coming through in the form of a muffiny flavor. The hops come though in the end with the noble spicey flavor and leave the palet with a clean finish.

M: Very light body with low to moderate carbonation.

O: A crisp, clean, hoppy german lager. NG does the style well, but personally I like the sweetness to be a little more subdued. Its not over powering by any means, just a personal preference on the style being more balanced.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Clear, light brownish yellow, with some more yellow highlights. Darker than expected. Frothy white head sticks around a 1/2 finger and produces some good rings of lacing.

S- Crisp straw malt. Bit of a spice. Smaller bit of skunk.

T- Really clean and very subtle straw malt flavor, with a bit of a grassy hop character.

M- Light body and the finish is very clean. A beer made for quaffing.

O- This is a solid lager. No characteristics make it stick out as amazing, but it was a good drink.

Continuing my New Glarus indoctrination courtesy of the inlaws - 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Pale straw with hints of gold, moderate head and some lacing on the glass.

S: Smack of clear lager yeast, clean malt character with some sweetness, fresh cut grass, very faint apple skin.

T: Faintly toasted grain, husk...suggestions something metallic? Undertones of malty sweetness, grape skins...Noble hopping is faint but identifiable.

MF: Refreshing and easy drinking for sure, thinner body with a relatively clean finish.

O: While it goes down pretty easy when cold, this brew still reminds me of something that belongs in a green twist-off bottle. Its something in between BMC and Boster Lager, which I realize is a large spectrum, but for me everything on this side of the lager scale just showcases why this isn't my favorite style. Still a fine offering and a good brew for what it is.

Amber in color with great clarity. Minimal foam on the top. Lively carbonation. Simple aroma of pale malt and lager yeast dominate the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and crisp. The flavor showcases the malt and is meant to be pretty laid back. A decent beer for a hot day.

12oz into a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a mild amber with a large white head.

S: Fresh grain, light caramel, moderate leafy hoppiness.

T: Bready, a bit of nutty sweetness, light yeast and some mild hop bitterness.

M: Light-bodied with crisp carbonation.

O: A very tasty, slightly malt-forward pilsner.
