My first beer of the evening. Served in a shaker pint, the beer is a light gold with a minimal bone white head.
Aroma of light grains and traces of plum and citrus.
The taste is right in the wheelhouse for the style. Light citrus hops, whole grain cracker and a bit of plum. The finish is slightly metallic in a good biter way.
The active Carbonate makes the mouth sharp.
This was an easy drinker that hit the spot after my long walk to the bar. It's refreshing and a gentle crossover beer.

Pint served on-tap at Hill's Restaurant (nominated for BeerFly) in downtown Spokane for $4.50. This beer has also been known as Bulldog Ale (named after the Gonzaga mascot).
This is a super-clear, pale gold in color. Moderate-sized white head. Isolated spots and streaks of lace.
The nose is malty and earthy, but not skunky. Not much to sniff at re: hops.
The taste is a bit like a decent but not earthshattering pilsener: malty, with a very slight hop twang at the swallow. Clean finish with no appreciable aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is thin, but not disturbingly so, with a clean, lager-like mouthfeel.
A decent, though not memorable beer, this is a good choice for a pitcher when drinking with un-adventurous beer drinkers.

I had this one at the Northern Lights Brewery. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a pale gold color with a very light haze. A small, sticky head fades fast, but what is left clings to the glass nicely.
The smell is faint and earthy, with an aroma of wet grain.
The taste is sweet and sharp. Tastes a bit like flower petals. There is a very mild hop presence.
Mouth feel is light but not watery, crisp and clean.
A very drinkable beer, but a bit one dimensional, on the lager side. I'd have it again, but it's not my favorite from this brewer.

Northern Lights takes all the color out of this cream ale and turns it into flavor. The body is exceptionally pale straw yellow deathly pale. But the flavor is bold and forms itself somewhat along pilsner lines. The body holds a frail head on medium carbonation with no lace. The smell is of meaty, yeasty character.
Where most cream ales aspire to subdued mellowness, Northern Lights Créme Ale is more brazen and extroverted. Its sharp angles cant be ignored, but that is precisely its appeal.
