This is GC's specialty beer as they call it. It is a blend of their Northern Light and Mai Bock beers. So I labeled this a bock.

Poured into a large glass mug. Color is quite 'bock-like.' Very clear, copper colored. No lace hear and not the best head retention.

Aroma: Very light on the nose. Caramel, roasted malts, a touch of honey. A sweet, bock aroma.

Taste: Big malt taste. Caramel. Roasted flavor. Slight earthy hops. Not to bad.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and a little bitter. Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Ends with the typical bock aftertaste. A little sticky with a mouth full of malt flavor.

Overall, I am surprised how much I enjoyed this beer. Very easy drinking, yet full of flavor. The 25 oz mug went fast. Give this one a try when you are visiting.

The Two Pull was an interesting combination between the Northern Lights and the Brother Benedict Bock. The combination made for a decent tasting beer. I appearance was average lighter clear amber, not much head and no lace. The smell was a maltier version of the Northern Lights Lager. The taste was much better than the Bock by itsself. The Lager helped to smooth out the heavy grain/barley taste of the Bock. Mouthfeel was good the Bock gave the beer a little body and the lager made teh beer drinakable. Overall it was ok. teh IPA was much better.

Very light brown color with an off-white head and nice carbonation. Fairly nice toasty grain aroma and flavor which is not suprising considering this is a mix between the Northern Light Lager and Brother Benedict's Mai Bock. It's amazing how this tasted just like a mix of the 2 but was somehow better... Fairly light in body with nice carbonation.

Decent enough but I hope this is not Granite City's lame attempt at passing this off as a seasonal... there was no seasonals on tap during my visit.

I'm not sure there are that many cases where you can take 2 very average beers, mix them together off the tap, and actually create a beer that is better than the individual attempts.

Tasted On-Tap 05/11/05 at the Cedar Rapids, IA location.

Picked up by a non-beery friend in St. Louis because the growlers are cool. The beer? Well, let's see...

A - Pours a brown color, some reddish hue to it, off-white head, thin collar, wisps.

S - Grains, malts, touch of burnt sugars, caramel, light hops.

T - Much like the nose, light malts, light hops. Kinda watery and not really much taste to it. Very light on just about everything.

M - Light, easy to drink, watery.

O - Not good, not bad...average, at best. Really easy to drink but didn't really intrigue me at all. Wouldn't probably get again...too many other good ticks to be had out there.

A- Pours a brownish red color with a fairly thin off white colored head. Head turns into to a layer of bubbles and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Smells is pretty light and not a whole lot going on here. A bit of bready malts and a hint of nuts.

T- Nothing terrible but nothing exciting too. Pretty much like the nose sweet, bready malts and maybe a bit of floral hops.

M- Light in body and good carbonation. A little on the watery side.

D- Easy to drink just nothing special.

My brother law shared the growler with me. He picked this one up in Toledo.

Reviewed from notes.

Brown with red highlights, with an off white head with fair retention and lacing. Smells and tastes like caramel, dark roasted malt, and bread. A bit thin and watery, with decent carbonation. Not much aftertaste. Not much to get excited about, but not bad either.

Served as part of an 8-pour sampler flight at SLP Granite City.

Pour was lighter side of brown with a slight ruddy tint. Not a lot of head, and lacked lacing. Smell was lightly malty. Taste was similarly malty with a mild sweetness that finished crisp and dry enough not to be annoyingly sweet. Light body. Drinkable. Average.
