Had this one many times back in the late 1990s...always appreciated it on the deck by the Mississippi River in St. Cloud, Minnesota...provides me fantastic memories of the special people in my life...cool summer evenings and bold winter days...I believe it needs to be reborn.

A: golden yellow with hue of orange, big fluffy head, ok lacing.
S: grainy, citrus, hint of pine.
T/M: hint of sweet grain, citrus, light bread, light/medium body, lots of carbonation.
D: This is an amazing offering from Leinenkugel. This should be their standard lager. One of the best American Pale Lagers out there.

Pours a clear golden with a fluffy white head. Mildly sweet aroma has some lager yeast profile to it. Nice, crisp malty body has a good hoppy balance. Finishes smooth and bittersweet. Typical of leinie's beers. Too plain for the serious beer drinker and too flavorful for the masses.

Leinenkugel's Northwoods is a more flavorful lager than most of the well-known lagers on supermarket shelves. It looks and smells like a normal American lager (read: macro) but has a richer lager flavor. That is, it's grassy and grainy smelling. It's drinkable, but I usually pass when I see it. *Leinie's did recently reintroduce a batch as a limited edition but I was unable to review it.

one of the better leiny offerings... I'm still stuck wondering why everyone likes Sunset wheat...? Northwoods lager is standard lager fare...pours a gold with a slight tint of copper.. lots of bubbles, minimal head that leaves quite quickly. The nose is a bit of floral rosiness with that earthy corn lager graininess.... taste is like the nose. A bit sweeter than the average American Lager and a bit more distinctive for sure. A bit of malt and Hops can be detected(thankGod)... I wouldn't go out of my way to get this but I wouldn't turn it down like I would the Sunset wheat.

This poured a light amber-dark gold color with a medium head. The aroma is lightly malty and the taste has a light sweetness to it. There is little hoppiness to this beer. In the mouth, it is smooth, and it goes down easy. Reasonably drinkable. A decent, if not distinctive, example of American lager.

A- 1 finger head, orange color, no sediment.
S- Floral apricot, with touch of light orange, light hopiness, and decent balance of malt and hops.
T- Pretty Austere here. w/ just a hint of maltiness.
M- Low carb, slightly smooth
D- This could be sessionable, but it isn't great. Clearly, in my opinion, a beer targeted for BMC drinkers.

Pours a few shades darker than gold, nearly a copper hue to it. Completeley transparent. Looks thin-bodied with mild carbonation.
The nose is very mild. Smells like an average, every day run of the mill brew.
The taste is very malty and full up front, followed by a very clean finish. Mouthfeel is soft and almost oily. Could definitly use more carbonation.
Drinkability is decent. Not my favorite beer, nothing exciting, but nothing to complain about either. Ive had a lot worse.
