A - Hazy orange in color. Came from the tap with a 2 finger off white head. Lacing is moderate but that may be due to me drinking it so fast!

S - Grassy and hoppy. Not much on the nose but nothing bad.

T - Sweet up front with huge hop flavor on the finish. Don't get much bitterness making this a very well balanced beer.

M - Medium carbonation. Accents the rest of the beer perfectly.

O - A fantastic balanced beer. May be a new standard favorite.

Pours a dark orange golden with an off white head. Aroma is sweet bread and dough, vanilla, and some grassy hops. Flavor is similar with the addition of some orange. A crisp, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, only had a few cream ales now and this is by far the best of the bunch. First one that I have been thoroughly impressed with. Definitely will be returning to this one, a great option when seeking a sessionable beer.

11/09/11 Second taste on tap. Not your grandfather's cream ale. Nothing too exotic, mind, but adventurous. Texture's right but taste is more assertive. Hoppier than a Genesee, my guidepost in this genre. Likeable, but heavy...bready on the belly.

2012 - At Rattle n Hum, NYC. OK. A bit on the heavy side for my taste. Balanced flavor and bitterness, leaning a notch to the sweet side.
