On tap, served in a shaker pint.

A- Clear golden-yellow body, half finger white head, not much longevity, lots of rings of lacing left over.

S- Grainy bready aromas, mild-moderately sweet on the nose with a mild earthy and floral hop aroma.

F- Very drinkable blend of bread, a bit of honey, earth and a mild lemon hop flavour. It's reasonably flavourful for a pale lager, with a nice mild hop bite. Delicious.

M- Just the right amount of body. Nice lemon bitterness on the backend that isn't too strong; incredibly drinkable and not watery at all. Plenty of flavour, nice carbonation. It's not too bitter, but the bitterness it does have actually contributes quite a bit to the overall flavour.

O- Very tasty APL, easy to drink, very simple but delivers on what it advertises. Mellow, smooth and very tasty.

Light gold in color. Moderate head of foam off of the pour. I smell...corn and a bit of a vinegar aroma. Not too enticing. The flavor is corn and a quick fade away. Drink this one cold for maximum enjoyment. The mouthfeel is pretty light, like drinking water.

12oz bottle poured into a New Glarus 20th Anniversary Pilsner Glass.

The beer pours a clear, golden color, lots of bubbles rising to the top of the glass with a fluffy, white head, nearly 2 or 3 fingers high resting atop the beer that has good retention and leaves a great network of sticky lace behind. The aroma is very simple, light cereal grain and crisp noble hops with some hop spice. It's sweet, bright with a touch of earthiness, hard to complain for a 4.25% pale lager. The flavors are right on queue, sweet pale grain, lemony hops, hop spice and some earthiness as well. Light and refreshing to say the least. The body is nice, very crisp with lively carbonation, smooth, light body that has a soft finish.

Verdict: A nice pale lager from New Glarus. Light, refreshing and crisp. One of the more enjoyable summer beers and a perfect lawnmower beer.
