4 oz. sample at the brewpub. Pours light golden with medium white head. Aroma is nice pilsner malt, medium carbonation, light body, and thin small bubble lacing. Taste is nice pilsner malt and balancing hops. Good for the style. crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2006
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. JStax (6913) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2010
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. jcwattsrugger (12450) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2011
on tap-pours a white head and pale yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain, paper, some spice hops. Dogbrick (13144) - 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.

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.

Draft at the source. Hazy pale yellow color. Aroma of light hay and straw. Taste is similar. AmEricanbrew (6878) - 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. theisti (4138) - 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. BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, 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.
