Leinenkugel's Northwoods Lager Review

Name: Leinenkugel's Northwoods Lager
Style: Pale Lager
ABV: 4.9%

Time to look at another offering from Leinenkugel's with their Northwoods Lager. This is somewhat of an older offering from the brewery as I've seen articles referencing it's "comeback in 2008. I've also seen this beer as a part of Leinenkugel's Explorer Pack but haven't bothered to check it out until now.

Appearance - Clear dark orange color with tons of carbonation. The head itself is quite thin and there's some spotty lacing along the sides of the glass.

Aroma - Munich malts dominate most of the palate with some light floral hops & barley notes.

Taste - Much like the nose, the flavor consists  mainly of Munich Malts and barley with a slight bitterness on the back of what is an otherwise dry palate.

This isn't a beer that's trying to knock your socks off in terms of flavor and that's totally fine with me. In fact, based on the flavor, I'd classify this more in the Vienna Lager territory than anything else. Yes, there are more tasting complex lagers out there but I wouldn't turn this down again.
