look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
