A standard light. Maybe patriotic, but not necessarily all-american. Nothing exceptional here, but women and rednecks will love it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Framingham. Golden yellow color. There was a hint of hops in the aroma. More flavor than your average light beer, still a light beer though, some sweet malt and corn undertones, and slightly sticky finish. Refreshing and clean but certainly not worth it considering their other beers are respectable.

Springfield, PA location... Poured a golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma of dirty taps, and a trace of hops. Taste was malty, corn, and alittle hops as well. Despite the smell, this was very refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Draft... DC location... Sparkling clear, yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Well-balanced with some subtle notes of honey and mash. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish. Surprisingly good for the style as itís not among my favorites. Refreshing!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice grain/malt aroma and floral hops. A bit rubbery but pleasing. White foamy lacing head over clear light yellow liquid. Light carb, almost flat with medium watery body. Good hops with light bitterness. Initial sweetness followed by a smooth light bitter finish and after. Smooth and refreshing, this was a pretty decent American light.

aka Northern Light Lager at the Union Station Brewery (part of JH chain but keeping their original name). Sweet cider nose, very light, hints of hops, decent for a light, pale and watery-looking, that's all I have the energy to write about this beer.
