Rated based on notes taken 26 Jun 2014 -- I had been wanting to try this beer for a long time. It has the typical corn sweetness that I love in cream ales, although it was surprisingly hazy, upon further review NG intended this to be the case. Still a very pleasant beer to drink.

Thanks to the Shockmels for the beer! Pours hazy pale straw with super fluffy white head. Aroma of light malt sweetness. Flavor is nicely sweet but lightly tart. Lingers well. I am not a cream ale fan but this is nice and drinkable. Depth of flavor with the lightness from the corn and great head from the flaked barley. Nice beer.

Light golden color, moderate white head. Grassy, floral, coriander, orange peel, and bread malt. Very light taste, mildly sweet, and much like macrobrew lagers but better. Light bodied, mild carb, and a clean finish.

A good beer. I love my friends trip home to wisconsin as it usually yields me a couple cases.

Hazed golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, light citrus, faint corn. Taste of much of the same, less corn, more crisp wheatish.Clean finish

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a bit banana and clove, but this fades to cereal, lemon, and corn. It pours a slightly hazy yellow with a light, sudsy, fizzy white head. It retains a medium thick, dense ring of head with a light, cloudy surface and not much lace. The taste is a mellow, slightly muted, medium sweet with a light bitterness. The waxy texture is accompanied by a moderate, active carbonation. The medium body finishes with grain / cereal, corn, clove honey, lemon, and a touch of a floral character. The aftertaste is mostly clean with light notes of corn. Inoffensive, smooth drinker.

Inoffensive home-town hero beer for Wisconsinites like me. Putting my local love aside it pours visually and tastes like a standard light beer. No skunk, nothing bitter, hints of freshness and a safe taste. My wife likes it and I think others who just want a taste of beer who don't like tasty beer but also don't want to worry about gagging it down like this. That and for people in Illinois (where I live now) it's a hip novelty to smuggle it in.
Reviewed a smuggled in bottle.

12 oz bottle: Pours just a tad cloudy with a white head that dissipates quickly but still has good CO2 release. Aroma is bready and slightly sour with grassy undertones. Taste is sweet at first with a touch of a sour finish. Pretty smooth drinker, could be very sessionable if better options were not available. Not bad, still wanting to be wowed by NG’s other offerings and keeping an open mind after the mixed 12 pack was pretty average all around.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear deep golden under a thin foamy head. Clean malty yet earthy nose of oats and light corn and earthy blonde cereal grains. Clean nutty yet blonde cereal malt flavors with some gentle wheat and oats, low bitterness and just overall blonde malty. Too light and blandish.
