Good beery smell for what they're serving as a "light." Some malt does come through, but there is a definite taste of adjuncts. A slightly metallic tang like most light beers I've had, but still some substance. Properly pale for the style.

This hazy light blonde brew thows a thin-laced white head. The aroma is great. It is malty and sweet, like a good kolsch rather than a bock. Has a bit of tanginess to it. Light in body and easy drinking. Can taste bits of malt and little to no hops. This is actually pretty tasty for a "light ale" as their website describes it. I could throw back a handful of these pretty easily and quickly after an afternoon of bailing hay or shoveling manure.

This is my second of six brews I've tried from Northwoods and I am pretty impressed so far. I may need to take a trip to Eau Claire soon and visit this brewpub.

1.5/5  rDev -43%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: Pours a thin, clear yellow body with a small white head.

Smell: Lactic, soured wheat aroma. Ugh, everything's all messed up!

Taste: Good grief. Extremely lactic taste overall, a hint of adjuncts here and there, but it's simply unfinishable. Lord knows I tried!

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Mild carbonation.

Drinkability: "White weasel" has since become sort of a colloquial saying around these parts.

Pours out pale straw and sits light gold in the glass with a small white head. Poor head retention.

Smells of sweet lemony malty sweetness. Leaf-like aromas and a bit of graininess. Not much to be said about this one.

Tastes faintly sweet, light malt character minimal hop intrusion. Light zesty lemon flavor and a sharp grain-like flavor. Finish is lightly bitter with lingering graininess.

Light bodied with tact carbonation and little in terms of "feel," as in I don't want to "feel" this in my mouth anymore. Bland as hell, I don't see any reason to ever try this out again. I think this is the 4th example of a macro oreinted beer from NB&G that I've tried. I don't see a whold lot of difference between any of them, so my question is why make all of them? Hell, they could all be the same beer.
