Anything you like, or as a mild dessert beer.


The label art, with the stag silhouetted by a golden moon, is sublime, the beer has just the right amount of body, and the intriguingly sweet flavor and a finish tha is both clean and enigmatic. It's the kind of beer that makes you want it to be autumn all year round.

New Glarus, in its bottle blurb, says it has no artificial agents, additives or preservatives, and boasts very high quality ingredients. . It's Krausened beer, which they explain as beer made with a process that releases the smooth flavor of the roasted malts. But you'll know all that, on some level, just from drinking it.
