BeerandBlues2 (9454) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is Pils and cereal malt, corn notes, spicy and earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with medium hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy white head. Average head retention and lacing. Faint aroma with sweet malt notes. The taste is pale bready malts with just a faint bit of hops. Thin-medium bodied. Boring.

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2010
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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2011
On tap at the North End Tavern, Parkersburg WV on 11 March 2010 (on the chalkboard as Northern Light at 6.0% - have they lowered the ABV or was the chalkboard wrong?). Only had a small taster of this as they weren’t offering a sampler and I wasn’t going to get through a pint of each of the beers. Seemed quite strong for the style, maybe with a little more to it all round. Clean enough. Unremarkable. Not a lot else to say.

DrSilverworm (6021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Served from a small plastic cup. Totally clear golden color. Head fades to nothing super quickly. Lots of large bubbles visible stuck inside the sides of the cup. Flavor is grain, cereal (cornflakes), and corn. Very light carbonation, almost flat. Lighter body. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bready flavor. OK but not great golden ale.

AmEricanbrew (5656) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 10, 2009
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.

JaBier (4831) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Sample at the brewpub on 9/20/13. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, a kind of corn sweetness and some crispness. Malty and slightly buttery flavor with a crisp finish.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Approximately 3 ounce sample pour (in a plastic oversized shot glass) at the brewpub in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The pour is clear golden yellow with basically no head. The aroma is dirty grain, with a bit of funk. The taste is toasted grain, that moves quick to diacetyl, and finishes very dirty. The palate is light bodied, lower carbonation and the aforementioned dirty finish. If they brew this beer for folks who are used to Bud Light, those folks are going to immediately have doubts about brewpub beer.
