This beer is good for what it is; a light easy drinking cream ale. It stays firmly within the style, so anyone expecting anything other than a lawnmower beer should look elsewhere, but this beer accomplishes what it sets out to do.

The beer is crystal clear with good carbonation, not much nose, and a slightly bready clean malt flavor.

On tap at Fox and Hounds, Raleigh.
Pours a pale golden yellow color, with an inch of white foam. Head fades to a thin cap, leaving a spider web of lace.
Smells of some malt sweetness, and a bit lemony, minimal hops.
Grainy malt taste, with some mild lemon at the end. Mild bitterness at the end.
Mouth feel is on the lighter side, medium body, crisp and clean aftertaste.
Overall, well balanced and easy to drink beer, fits the style.

Straw colored, decent inch or so of head that diminishes but never really goes away. Smells bready. Tastes metallic. Just... metallic. Pretty one note. Not a pour-out, but wouldn't order again.
