Into a U.S. pint glass. Half finger of head with a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The smell is mild grain.
Taste is fizzy with mild bitterness balanced with a dose of malt. Simple and mild taste overall.
Moderate carbonation with a nice fizzy. Light to medium body.
Enjoyable and quite drinkable for the long-haul.

I assume this is Vino's crossover beer. It is very different from most "blonde crossover brewpub ales" in that it does not try to imitate B/M/C in any way, except for hue. It is a pale golden color, but that is where the similarities stop. Unlike fizzy, bland blondes, it is often served with low carbonation, forms a nice dense head, a bit hazy, has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel (quite literally a cream ale), a comforting touch of hop character, and the slightly fruity "yeast signature" that is perceptible in all of Vino's brews. Six Bridges is a well balanced, easy drinking thirst quencher/session brew. Personally, it lacks a lot of the flavor I usually seek when I spend my money on craft beer. For what it is though, it is good. Sure beats buying a skunky, overpriced import or a Bud/Miller/Coors. A glass of this brew is not only easygoing, it can be useful. It helps to wash the palate between tastings.

Tasted on-tap 04/17/07 at Vino's Pizza Pub and Brewery in Little Rock, AR.

Light golden in color with a decent off-white head. Aromas and flavors are all of soft malt and grains. Medium-light bodied.

Not bad for a pretty small brewpub. Well worth trying.

A: Served a light straw color with a small head and bits of lacing.

S: Mild aroma of malt sweetness, spice, and fresh grain.

T: Taste is similar to aroma, malt sweetness, bit of spice and grain.

F: fairly light body, smooth and creamy, with a decent balance.

O: Nice beer that goes down easy. Pleasant surprise from a small local brewer.

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

A - a nice golden color poured into pint glass with a small head that diminished quickly

S - malty sweetness, and a spice tone lingering

T - Sweet hoppy taste with a very pungent malt taste too

M - creamy silky feel with no bitterness

O - I enjoyed this one at my home after picking up a couple of growlers. Finished it the same day I got it. Very easy going down and deff sessionable. Would drink again and can't wait to go back to vinos to try the many other beers. Lazy boy coming next from me

Enjoy
