Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Extremely pale yellow in color with a slight haze and a large, creamy, snow-white foam head. This beer is rather light on the palate and very dry. A lively carbonation accentuates the refreshingly tart acidity. Expect an interesting mix of fruity flavors reminiscent of ripe lemons and apple juice with a touch of spice and a subtle brett character.

Sorry Schell's brewing but this beer is not good. It's not my style. I realize this beer is made specifically to taste the way it does but I did not like it. My poor rating won't hurt though because there is a pretty strong group that likes Star of the North. It's the only offering from Schell's I haven't enjoyed so there's plenty of options for me.

Big thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Pale yellow, very hazy, with a big fluffy white head that has poor retention. Medium visible carbonation after the big cork pop.

S: Tart, citric, moderately funky, with pale base malts and wheat. Overall impression reminds me of lemony feet.

T: Citric acid bite, light malt base with minimal husk character, barnyard and grassy funk. Lemon rind and funk in the hang with some hay-like graininess.

M: Light body, lively bubbly carbonation sensation, and no particular alcohol presence.

O: Quite tasty. Maybe not my favorite base berliner out there, but very well done. Recommended for a nice summery drink!
