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.

This one is a combination of the Northern Lager and The Bennie. Oddly enough, this one is really good. Who knew you could take two mediocre beers, mix together, and somehow make an even better beer. It is not outstanding, but is better than the other two alone. Seems to round out that aftertaste on the Bennie and gives the Northern Lager some much needed flavor.

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.
