Can into tumbler.

A- Hazy burnt copper pour with a half finger off white head. Lacing is minimal.

S- Faint malts, a touch of corn grass and a very subtle floral hop presence. Slightly sweet. Very typical cream ale aroma.

T- Sweetness up front, light graininess, floral hops and a touch of cookies or biscuits.

M- Light bodied, light carbonation.

O- Typical cream ale, I've had much better cream ales and much better from Sixpoint.

On tap at Dewey's Pizza in Oakley.

Poured into a pint glass this is a hazy light orange to golden yellow with just a bit of white head.

Nose has some peach, pear and apple esters along with a dose of citrusy hops.

Plenty of bready characters and a nice hop bite right off the bat. I was expecting something more tame but I am not disappointed. On the contrary, this brought a smile to my face as I like were this cream ale is heading. Medium to full mouthfeel. So smooth and silky...dare I say creamy? Somewhat yeasty in character.

The hops really had so much to this somewhat boring style and maybe I am being too harsh on the cream ale style but a nice citrus punch really brings this beer around. Good chewy bits from the malts and a great hop bite make me want more of this.

The beer pours a glowing honey-amber-orange and slightly hazy. There is a quarter inch of thick and creamy head that leaves fairly thick lacing down the glass.

The aroma is pine, spices, especially cloves, some sweet, some wheat, some orange.

The taste is very orange, sweet, with some yeasty, fruity tartness. There is both toasted wheat and bitter hops. The spice is also in the taste, but lighter.

The mouthfeel is creamy and finishes dry. I am not sure what to make of this beer, it has some good parts, but is a bit strange, perhaps unique might be a better word.
