3.65/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale blonde in color with thin white head that lingers briefly.

S: Malt primarily with faint hop aromas

T: Malt sweetness balanced with hop bitterness. No hop taste though, which is appropriate to the style (I think so anyway)

M: Thin with medium carbonation

O: Easy drinking beer. Very crisp and clean but not overly impressive. Would definitely drink it again, yet would want something with more flavor if I'm sharing. Good grilling beer.

Serving type: bottle

2.94/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Served on tap in a pint

Appearance is clear and light yellow-straw color with a small creamy white head that retains decently, leaving behind some lace. Smells of grains, grass and a hint of cream. Taste like an adjunct light lager with just a hint of sweetness, hops are barely traceable but slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is light with biting carbonation leading to a foamy mouthfeel. This would appeal to a BMC drinker, but there are better cream ales out there.

Serving type: on-tap

3.29/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass. Ridiculous four inch fluffy white foamy head that hung around forever. Super clear light straw color. Taste is e'er so slight sweetness with an e'er so slight hop bitterness. Almost like a homeopathic ale or something. Very light and refreshing, though. Mouthfeel is creamy and effervescent. Nice on a hot summer day.
