Notes/Commercial Description:
A brilliant copper color distinguishes this malty light amber ale. Designed as the ultimate compromise beer, everybody will enjoy this draft. After all, why compromise if you don't have to?

On tap at the Brewpub.

A - Pours a light, clear amber color with a near white head. Light lacing patches left on the glass.

S - Malty, bready scents dominate here.

T - A nice light combo of malts and hops. I was surprised how hoppy of and amber this was, not in a hop punch, but in flavor.

D - Light body and average carbonation.

O - Light and sessionable amber.

On tap at the pub, Northern Light Amber is clear bronze with a small, off-white head, leaving light lace.

Smell is sweet and malty, with what is becoming Moose's Tooth's pervasive cream soda note.

Taste is bready, with a light sweetness and bitter finish. Pretty simple, but it work's. As they cited, the ultimate compromise beer (as in when the group can't decide on a pitcher you'll all like, you order this, which no one will like, but not hate either, and is easy enough to slurp down).

Mouthfeel is dry and crisp, with a medium-light body.

Drinkability is not bad, decent flavor for the size, but boring and rather forgettable in the end.
