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.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a fluffy and chunky three fingers of white foam.

Smell: Nice spicy hops and sweet crackery malt backbone. Simple but inviting.

Taste: Follows the nose with a light crackery malt, sharp, spicy hops, some yeast and a bit of tangy lemon. Fairly sweet overall.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp and clean with a creamy finish.

Overall, this is a straight forward but fantastic pale lager. Light but flavorful, crisp, refreshing and completely satisfying. A great summer session beer. As the label states, "This is beer at it's most basic". In this case, that's a good thing.

Pours a HUGE, bellowing, dense, white head that has good persistence and laces the glass like crazy. Distinctive noble hop aroma is slightly spicy with a touch of sweetness. Crystal clear, golden hue. Starts off with a touch of floral hops, a touch of spiciness and sweet malt. No building of bitterness, instead the malt takes the wheel and ramps this up into a sizeable, delicious, bready malt backbone. The finish is DECADES of deep, grain and breadiness; it just lasts and lasts. A touch of floral hops will peek through if you let the finish settle.
It even has this wonderful, thick, luscious, silky feel in your mouth. It's not thin, but it's not thick.

Holy hell. This is beyond amazing. Dare I say, "perfect"?
It is EVERYTHING a malt-centric lager should be; delicious, refined, and masterfully balanced. It's, literally, like drinking a loaf of fantastic bread.

I'm a HUGE fan of malt and lagers. This is perfect.
If you're looking to try and expand your palate and experience more malt-centric lagers, this is the PERFECT place to start.

Poured into New Glarus taster glass. Appearance is a pale yellow with nice clarity and Gropius amounts of frothy white head that leaves behind tons of lacing. Née features light grainy bread notes with notes of orange and citrus in the background. The taste is malt forward with a light refreshing citrus quality. Nice easy drinking lager with a pleasant taste. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, not the most interesting brew in the world, but certainly a solid example of the style and would drink nicely on a hot summer day.
