Picked up a single of this yet-untried (by me) New Glarus brew at their hilltop bottle shop. Poured into a Surly imperial pint glass.

A: Pours out a hazy light-orange/dull-yellow color with a modest 1 finger soapy eggshell white head that is short lived, leaving very little lacing of any kind save for a few dots here and there. Not the most attractive looking beer, but not bad either.

S: The smell is bright and refreshing, with notes of pale grains and a crackery breadiness from the malts accented by hints of lemon and a touch of herbal and grassy hops. Subtle, clean, light, and intriguing with it's nuances of fruity yeast.

T: Very much like the smell, it leads with lighter, dryer (but semi-sweet) pale grains and crackery/bready maltiness before more subtle lemony/appley fruit notes and a hint of grassy and herbal hops come in late in the sip, finishing dry with a restrained but present spicy/bitter bite on the finish.

M: The mouthfeel is on the very light side of things and almost comes across watery at times, backed up by amply crisp carbonation. The consistency is a touch flat but with a dry bite on the end that saves it...not but coating of any kind and very airy/bubbly. Alcohol is 100% hidden and the finish is refreshing and clean.

D: This beer would be quite the summer sessioner for me if I could get it here. It's so light and refreshing with a subtle complexity that leaves the palate fully in tact and ready for more. The super low ABV helps this go down easily. I'm very much enjoying this one's high drinkablility.

Yokel was a fine kellerbier. I'm not huge on the style but new glarus made it interesting while staying true to the beer's roots. Highly recommended for fans of super easy-drinking lagers.
