Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some grains. Taste is crisp, malts, grains, slightly sweet. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but really not much better than most pale lagers.

I will be closer to the Bros on this than the rating average. I will re-rate when I get to Wisconsin again.

My all time favorite, sit and chill beer. Clean, summery, and crisp taste with a light and fizzy mouth feel. Drive to Wisconsin from Maryland to load up on this and other New Glarus beers a few years ago. There are many incredible beers but because of the clarity and smooth taste this is definitely my go to for fresh light flavor.

Pours a clear crisp golden color with a frothy one finger white head.

Smell is very simple - malty, slightly sweet, grainy with a mild floral aroma.

Taste follows the nose - slightly sweet malty flavor with some ever so subtle hoppy notes. Very simple flavor profile, but appropriate for the style.

Feel is very crisp with medium carbonation. Smooth, drinkable, very refreshing.

Overall a very simple lager, but this is the kind of beer every macro beer wishes they were. Its a great beer for a hot day and one of my simple pleasure beers.
