The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some toffee and biscuit notes, as well as some grass and pine from the hops. The flavor is fairly similar. The hop notes balance very well with the sweet notes from the malt. I get some nice toffee quality and a hint of pine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured a deep orange/amber with a light off white head.

The smell is malty sweet and almost syrupy, a bit of corn with a touch of floral hops.

Very sweet, and i mean sweet, it tastes like it is super under attenuated. Has a ton of residual sugar and a big corn flavor. Has just a touch of hop bitterness but not nearly enough to even it out.

Has a light creamy mouthfeel.

I found this to be a tough drink, it was so cloying and completely out of balance it was a tough drink.

On tap at Stag's Head in Houston. Follows a Spaten Oktoberfestbier. Was reluctant to get this, since a) being from Chicago, I'm sick of hearing how awesome Spotted Cow is, the only other cream ale I've had, and b) Stone IPA is on the menu. But giving it a shot, since Bengali, Resin, and Apollo have all been excellent. Sincerely ecstatic about this brewery arriving in Texas, since Texas has so little local stuff to offer.

A - comes in a pint class, very thin head with decent lacing. A nice orange, bronze. The color is beautiful. I would like to see this out of a can, since their other beers have great heads. This time though, a bit lacking in that category.

S - not at all what I expected, in a very good way. Citrusy goodness with some floral goodness. Basically right in my wheelhouse, just a little muted.

T - crazy good. Starts snappy and crisp, then creaminess coats the tongue as the maltiness sets in. The citrus hops just hang out in the background, not dominating, but making themselves known. As it fades a little bitterness comes in and it finishes a little tart. It's phenomenal.

M - crisp carbonation, then creaminess, then a nice drying tartness. Wasn't sweet at first, but after half a glass, it does leave a little candy aftertaste. Still quite good.

O - well, I usually don't agree with the Bros more than I do with the average, but in this case, I definitely do. This beer is amazing. And it's available year-round. Yes, please. Over and over.
