3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2010 This beer’s current name is actually Northern Lights. It is essentially a lighter version of their wheat beer. Just because its light though, does not mean it is shitty unlike many macro lights. Poured from a growler into a Solo cup for the best round of pong I have been a part of. Even though my team essentially destroyed the competitors, we drank all of our cups voluntarily and would have been glad to drink some of theirs. This beer was a hazy yellow with a good sized froth on top. The aroma is yeasty and an almost banana scent. The taste follows suit with a banana nut bread type palate. Not as apparent as the NET’s wheat beer, but it is still there. I would definitely drink this beer again. Maybe even today.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a thin white head that burns away quickly. Stringy lacing. Mildly grainy aroma with a bit of hops. Light body with a grainy malt flavor along with a touch of spiced hops. The finish is short and sweet with a lightly malty aftertaste. Overall just another typical brewpub introductory beer.

Northern Light pours clear yellow with a wispy white head. Spicy hop pale malt aromas. Light body. So so flavor is spicy hops with plastic tap line. Mild spicy hop twang to finish.

Clear golden pour. Wasn’t that light at all. Very crisp and malty with noble hops coming through. This was actaully pretty good and more like a kolsch.
