A: Golden shower with a nice creamy, thick white head.

S: Dry grass/hay.

T: This really resembled a BMC pilsner or lager more than a Cream Ale. Not much flavor.

M: Thin and slightly dry.

O: I was expecting this to be a bit more like Boddington's or one of the other cream ales I have had. I was hoping for much more as the other Pelican beers were pretty good.

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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.79/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a two finger white head that is kept intact by active carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt, grain, slighly soapy. Flavor is sweet biscuit malt and grassy hops, crisp. Light to medium bodied, with a slightly creamy head. A simple and light ale that hits the expected flavors for a cream ale. Nothing outstanding, but a pleasant lunchtime light ale with some off notes in the aroma.

Pours transparent, gold, with a thick head that sticks around. Citrusy, sweet aroma with a hint of hay. Just a bit of honey sweetness in the mouth with near-perfect balance. Very subtle flavors--malt sweetness, some hop bitterness, a little citrus/lemon. Coats the mouth until you swallow, then there is a dry finish. "Creamy"--couldn't resist, it really is. Very impressed.
