Notes: Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

Very clear, nice color, smells great. But a very thin mouth feel, and not a whole lot of flavor. Still a good beer, but nothing truly special. The only characteristic that stands out is the clarity - absolutely no haziness at all. That's a good thing for a beer like this one, but not something I care much. Still, if nothing else it's a very pure beverage and seems unlikely to cause a hangover. On the other hand, someone who regularly consumes alcohol probably wouldn't be able to get drunk on this! At 4.25% alcohol, it's a pretty light beverage and if you're a large man like myself, you'd need to slam down a whole six-pack to catch a buzz.

But if you're looking for something to drink at the beach that tastes like beer and won't make you publicly intoxicated, this is a good pick! It's reasonably priced, it's very clear about what it is, and seems like a good option for a family BBQ or pool party. Not the best option though for experienced drinkers looking for bold flavors or something with any kind of kick to it.

It's a lager that drinks like a light beer, and I would primarily drink this with a light meal as a palate cleanser or if I'm out in the heat and want to drink while still rehydrating a bit.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a completely clear, pale yellow to golden color with a moderate white head. SRM of 5. (3.75)

Aroma: Moderate aromas of pale malts, bread malt, some yeast before a smooth bready and honey to follow. Hints of lemon citrus. (4.00)

Flavor: Moderate flavors of crisp pale malts, cracker malts, bread malts. Some earthy honey to follow. These are authentic American malts without any adjunct flavors. (4.00)

Feel: Medium bodied. Low carbonation, and a very smooth mouthfeel. (4.25)

Compared to Stella Artois 1/16/22: Similar appearance. Slightly stronger aromas. More smooth and rich bread and earthy honey notes. Less cracker and yeast. Rich and bolder.

Overall: This was an impressive American lager. Drinks with authentic American pale malts without any detectable adjuncts. Almost rolls of the finish with an earthy honey flavor that reminds me of a German Helles, but not enough German flavors for that. It sticks to the style, and is a fantastic American lager. (Final Rating: 4.01)

L: Pours a clear light gold with lots of bubbles moving upward. Short white pillowy head thins quickly to a white film, but the bubbles keep moving. Minimal lacing.

S: Slight aromas of bread, lemon, and honey. Just a tad skunky.

T: More bread and honey. A bit of cereal. Some dryness at the end.

F: Crisp and clean mouthfeel. Excellent carbonation.

O: Very nice lager look and feel. The taste and aroma didn't quite match up, but were not bad.

A nice summer beer...very light and fizzy but carbonation dies quickly. Slight lemony taste that I didn't care for. Not a bad beer but there are others I like better.

Bottle reads 'J310'

Pours a crystal-clear straw body topped with just shy of two fingers of dense, white foam; solid head retention yields a thin, frothy veil of cap, a creamy, moderate collar, and firm strands of webby lacing spread around the glass. 4

Aroma opens crackery with accents of sweeter grains eventually developing full-on into freshly baked bread; lightly floral honey in the backdrop feeds into soft tones of grassy hops on the back end of the bouquet.

Taste brings forth tones of crispy bread crusts upfront as cereal grain steadily touches the mid-palate; subtle, intermittent honeysuckle phases into tinges of metallic tones the back end before soft floral hops mark the finish.

Mouthfeel shows an expectedly light body, just shy of thinning, and with a spritzy, moderate-high carbonation largely domineering the texture across the palate; an almost chalky, quenching dryness coats the mid-palate while a delicate, malty grit proceeds on the back end and into the finish.

Another simply-built lager from New Glarus, this one imposing delicate, hoppy touches upon a firm German malt base and creating a clean, straightforward, and satisfying quencher.

Crystal clear, light golden. Bright white head fleas very quickly leaving a partial ring with hardly enough carbonation released to maintain it.
Subtle wet hay earthiness with a touch of sweetness.
Super clean taste, straightforward balanced from start to finish
A bit viscous due to the lack of carbonation.
A very good lager which is not easy to do.

A friend gave me a 6pack of this. I’ve had it for awhile and this is the 4th bottle... it’s really good lager. Not boozy at all and a nice switch from an ipa or something heavier.. very good!

L: Clear golden yellow.
S: Sweet grain.
T: Slightly sweet with a bit of cereal grain taste.
F: Light-medium body with a respectable amount of carbonation. Very smooth and goes down easy.
O: This is a great beer to have with friends or unwind quick after a day but there isn't a whole lot of complexity to it and the flavor is a touch too weak. With that being said it is a very refreshing and easy to drink beer and it has it's place. Comparing this to Two Women though; Two Women is a direct upgrade.

12-oz bottle into Guinness tankard

S - weak scent of grain with a touch of sweetness and a hint of grass

T - light malts, bready, light sweetness, grass and a little pepper in the finish

M - refreshing light body, medium/high carbonation

O - nothing spectacular here; just a plain refreshing beer for unwinding at the end of the day
