Poured from a 12-oz bottle brought back from Oregon by a friend.

A: clear yellow, visible carbonation, a few millimetres of head
S: pale malts, corn
T: fairly generic. "It tastes like beer."
F: smooth
O: nothing to get excited about, I certainly wouldn't go out of my way for it

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a very clear golden color with tons of visible carbonation, bright soapy white head that left chunky lace.

S- Sweet creamed corn, floral, grassy, bready, and honey sweetness.

T- Incredibly well balanced beer with notes of sweet creamed corn, honey sweetness, floral and grassy hop notes, bready, and sweet caramel notes.

M- Soft carbonation, incredibly smooth, refreshing, lighter bodied, and semi-dry finish.

O- I never thought I'd be blown away by a cream ale, but this is just an outstanding easy drinking and incredibly well balanced beer. Lots of nice malt sweetness with a gentle hop bitterness.

Pours a finger of head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma is a dry grain smell.
The taste is a light lemon bitterness with a creamy background.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's light on the "cream" but still enjoyable.

12oz : flute

Clear, golden yellow with a thick foamy, white head that dissipates to leave a thin, craggy cap.

Floral, lightly grassy, spicy hops with a sweet, malty backbone. Very easy drinking, but tasty beer.

Medium+ body, foamy medium carbonation.

Subtle flavors and aromas, but quite tasty is the time is taken to appreciate them! This would be a great warm weather beer.
