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.
