Poured from a bottle into my New Glarus Signature Pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a golden-yellow, very clear. Decent sized white foam head that recedes relatively quickly. A little bit of lacing.

Smell: Smells wonderful. A smorgasbord of aromas, here. Wheat, malts, a little citrus, yeast. Lemon zest. A little bit of grassiness, possibly. A great balance of aromas.

Taste: This is where this one falters a bit. Those wonderful aromas are mostly absent now. Some pale malts up front. Yeast. Grass. A tiny bit of the lemon zest, as well. Basically, most of what we had in the aroma, just very, very muted. One of the more watered down tastes you'll find, at least from somewhere like New Glarus. Not bad at all, but nothing special here.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with a good deal of carbonation.

Overall: Nothing but a safe entry by New Glarus. A good, refreshing summer brew. Although they accomplished what they set out to do, I would never buy a six pack of this one.

Clear light golden body with minimal head and lacing. Fairly strong pale malt, barely and grain base with cracker and light honey presence. Nice hop complexity with sweet corn, honey for flavor which is a lot less malty than the aroma forboded. Light body and moderate carbonation and crisp finish.

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, straw colored body. The head sticks around for a while and leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Musty, herbal hop aroma with some grainy malt.

T - Clean, mild malt with light hop presence and little else.

M - Mdium body, moderate carbonation, and a well balanced finish.

D - Nicely done, it is very well balanced and drinkable.
