COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with flaked barley and the finest Wisconsin malts. We even give a nod to our farmers with a little hint of corn. Naturally cloudy we allow the yeast to remain in the bottle to enhance fullness of flavors, which can not be duplicated otherwise. Expect this Ale to be fun, fruity and satisfying.

Ataraxia (361) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2014
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.

egajdzis (5290) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2014
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

ARH (364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
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.

onceblind (4009) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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.

Easy drinking beer only available in Wisconsin. Golden and slightly cloudy appearance. Taste is light and not hoppy. Good overall and will continue to get occasionally.

Pours classic golden color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is simple, free of hops or anything other than classic "beer" aroma. Taste is sweet from start to finish. A good alternative to a macro brew on a hot, summer day.
