  • Pours a ruby brown color with a huge three finger white dense foamy head. Great retention on the head and nice frothy lacing that sheets down the side of the glass.

    Aroma is malty and mildly sweet. Some grain type aromas as well as some earthy yeast.

    Taste starts malty and works into a smooth bready flavor. This beer has a slight sweetness to it that lingers in the finish. I am also getting a very mild spice lingering on the finish, nothing over the top, but just right.

    Light body with light carbonation. Watery mouth feel.

    Overall another enjoyable beer from New Glarus. Nothing over the top, but very solid. An easy drinking beer with a nice well balanced personality. Try one!
