3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

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

I guess a lot of brewpubs feel the need to brew something like this to cater for the unenlightened masses, but itís not really a very interesting style. Very pale gold colour. Adjuncty aroma with plenty of wet cardboard too. Dull mouthfeel, with a sweetish finish. Didnít taste too fresh. On tap at John Harvardís, Washington DC.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2015
Location: Draft at the Union Station brewpub (Providence), 3/28/15
Aroma: The nose is pale malts, some straw and adjunct notes as well.
Appearance: This one is clear gold in color, with an average sized white head, and decent lace.
Flavor: It has a pretty similar flavor, not a ton here, lightly sweet, malty, mild bitter.
Palate: This one actually has a nice feel, it is pretty easy drinking, clean, and not watery.
This is a decent one for a light lager. There isnít a ton here, but it works well from a feel perspective and it looks pretty nice.

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.
