COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Northern Brewing Co. was named in tribute to CUBs first ever Queensland based brewing operation, the Great Northern Brewery in Cairns acquired in 1931. Back then, beer was made locally for locals. The brewery has since gone, but the concept of drinking local made beer lives on in Great Northern Brewing Co. This beer is brewed longer for a super crisp and refreshing full strength lager.

One of my favourite commercial beers. Its a dry beer that I can drink anytime and at a reasonable price for the quality.

M_Sack (637) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle. Very pale. Mid strength. Has zero flavour but is not offensive as some low quality macro lager can be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, thin on top but laces well, hints of popcorn that disappears quickly. Finish, crisp? Yes, good sipper but quite tasteless, wouldnt seek it out, just feel its missing something even for a lager.

jonas (7107) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle, now says "Original" on the label? Golden, low white head, light sweet corny malt notes, a hint bittering hops, light watery body, mostly clean but has a very light sticky aftertaste. Not so great....

ANZUShophunter (364) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2015
From bottle at Ship Inn. Pale yellow with little head. Aroma and taste both unremarkable. Made for mass consumption in more ways than one.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 21, 2015
bottle from the local bottle-o in stockton, as advertised on tv. the picture tells the story with this one - clear yellow, sweet industrial aroma, nasty adjunct character, pretty horrible, real queensland beer

KeefOz (1669) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2015
Poured a crystal clear light/pale amber colour with a few millimetres of white foam for a head that diminished fairly quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation low to moderate with fine to medium sized bubbles. Aroma of sweet malt and grain with no obvious hops. Taste sweet plain malt with no real bitterness; slight metallic after-taste. Light body bordering on watery. Crisp, smooth, refreshing if cold, bland. Just another macro-brewed lager.
