UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Can. Clear pale yellow pour with a minimal white head. Corn/grain, dry, and very little else. Not good at all.

Oh the crap bin at Woodmans had this swill in it, Iím a sucker for ticks I guess, at least when theyíre from my home state, oh wait itís from Minnesota. Ultra strawyellow with a lively body and a soap sudsy white head. Aroma of skunk, vegetables and sweet malt. Yuck. Taste is pretty awful with corn, semi-sweet malt and mild sulfur. Super dry and astringent, this one didnít fail to live down to my expectations.

This beer is basically the epitome of flaws that you donít want if youíre making a light beer. Sick. Not good at alll.

Very white pour with the aroma of, well, nothing, and pee. Flavor was really light. Had a little rice character but otherwise not much. Somewhat drinkable for a extreme low quality beer but hey, if youíre already taking the occasion down to a bad beer, why not go down all the way and get northern. Itís not like you will feel better about yourself with Bud.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 Ah, yes. Thanks to my cousin Derek for getting me this for Christmas. It says Northern Light Low Carb on the can. Wow, this pours out of the can with a pale yellow that is not even straw. Itís like looking in a trough at a stadium and seeing the water washing away the urine. White scum of a head on top. The aroma is light vomit and corn flakes. There is also some petroleum based aroma, like motor oil. The taste is light corn flakes with a metallic finish.

12 oz. can, coded freshness date on the bottom, a low carb light lager, sampled in a lager glass. An crystal clear appearance, palest of golden yellows, bright white, fizzy foam head that quickly settled into a fine lacing, plentiful supply of micro bubbles. Strange, unappealing nose, even for a light beer, that apple juice scent that so many Gluek beers have, corn syrup, metallic fusel alcohol. Active carbonation without the light body, more medium, watery feeling. Unpleasant taste, weak, watery sour apple juice, the thinnest of sweet pale malts, hints of boiled sweet corn, used up, tasteless hops, finishes with a big taste of metal. There is also an artificial sweetener twang in the aftertaste, making you want to wash your mouth out. Well, Iíve been "Gluek!" again, another awful contract brew from this brewery.

Can. Pours golden with thin white head. Aroma is rotting compost and a little bit of cigarette smoke. Flavor is light diacetyl with rotten vegetables. Watery palate. Putrid. Canít think of any redeeming qualities to this beer.

Good light golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was corny with some graininess and maybe a faint hint of hops.The flavor managed to little more then the aroma did.Light and corny with a bit of a sweetness and some faint hops coming on towards the end.pretty forgettable brew but easy on the pocket book.It would be best if you saved your money and not try this brew,itís the worst of the worst IMO.

In a can. The only case sitting lonely all by itself at Samís Wine Warehouse in Chicago. Now I know why. Tastes of wet copier paper soaked in corn with lots of fizz. Lousy aftertaste. I put a couple in the freezer until they almost froze. Unfortunately, it didnít help much. I donít expect much from light, low carb beer, but this is ridiculous.
