Brewery continues its dedication to innovative and progressive beer styles. As a cream ale it combines the features of a lager with the best of an ale into one beer. Weve also added five percent oatmeal and 16% white wheat for a round, smooth flavor and mouthfeel. This is a very light hop weve introduced a blend of herbs into the finished product. Aimed at all those seeking innovation and alternative to "main stream" products and flavors. This product livens your senses with its unique fresh taste. Going to be a big hit throughout those hot summer days.

Draft. Definitely a twist on a golden ale, very spicy bit of green pepper closer to a said on.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, spice and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, cinnamon and light clove with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

Bottle. Light copper with thin white head. Aroma lavender, grains, spices, and light caramel. Light body, hop bitterness, lavender, spices, and a dry finish. Too much herbs/spices on the aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Hazy yellow color with a fizzy head and no carbonation. Nose is mainly barley, grassiness, hay, pale malts and yeasts; Very earthy. Flavor is surprisingly sweet with pale malts, barley, grassiness, wheat and yeasts; Still a bit on the earthy side. Body is light but the carbonation is more on the moderate side. Its ok but the flavor has a strange adjunct like taste to it; Needs work.

Medium Yellow, small white head. Aroma is herbal, floral, fruity, citrus, lemon, honey spices. Flavor much the same but without as much punch or complexity. Light body. Herbaly, flowery. Semi-dry.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2012
GNBF. Poured watery, light golden with a creamy, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up toasted grains and honey, with herbal and floral accents.. soft and enjoyable. The flavor was on the sweet side, with toasted caramel and pale malts at the core.. lemon and grainy bitterness around.. quick finish. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. watery at times.. OK feel and flow.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2010 As South Shore Herbal Cream Ale: Picked up a single bottle from Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow brew, very nice fizzy white foam. fast dissolving to a fine film and little lacing. Strange aroms of yeast, champagne, and citrus peel. Taste is just as different. Very light and carbonated on the tongue, fairly smooth with citrus flavor. The "herbal" may be some spice, but hard to figure this one out. Palate is thin and citrus finish.

As South Shore Northern Lights: Sampled on draught at the 2010 Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival in Chilton, WI. Pours a clear pale golden colored brew with an average sized white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, fruity character, grassy hops and a hint of spice. Taste is light to medium bodied, a little carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, spicy hops and even some white pepper. Finish is semi-dry crisp and a more floral hop with a mild spice aftertaste. A fine summer golden ale with some sweet and mild spices to make this one interesting.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2010
On tap at Fox Cities Brewfest 2010. Pour was light golden with an aroma of crisp wheat and light golden malt. Flavors were very smooth and light with some fruity characters poking through the well attenuated body. Good brew.

kramer (6574) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a large foamy white head that took forever to settle due to the vigorous carbonation. The nose is indeed quite floral and herbal with some light delicate pale malts. The flavor is really pretty decent for what I was expecting. The herbal character is very forward, but its quite delicate and nuanced. Very clean rather crisp on the finish for a Cream Ale. Light bodied with a little too much fizzy spritzy carbonation thats a bit distracting. A very enjoyable beer. Far exceeded my expectations.
