3.23/5 rDev -7.4%
Taken from notes July 23rd 2011.
Had on draft from Pizza Port Ocean Beach.
Beer pours a clear yellow with a thin, frothy head. Aroma is faint but consists of light grain husk and corn. Corn and grain on the palate with a touch of hops and maybe a bit of lemon. Faint like dried lemon peel. Body is creamy and light. Overall I like this style of beer because it is a tough one to make well, and when it's done well it is fantastic. This example was solid but not the best offering I had that night.

On-tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach
A: The pour is a clear, pale yellow color with a fluffy white head accompanying it.
S: Not surprisingly this smells like corn, quite a bit of corn, actually. There's a slight grain and bread sweetness along with a touch of grassy hops. But the nose is really light overall.
T: Sweet and full of corn with a decent graininess to it. There's a lot of grassy hop flavor to it. As the beer warms up, it sort of has a little lactose type flavor to it.
M: The body is quite light, maybe approaching medium, with a moderate to high carbonation.
D: It's pretty light and easy to drink for the person that doesn't feel like slamming one of the DIPAs, but there are better light options.

Crystal clear golden color in the half-litre nonic. Moderate foam. Aroma that can only be described as "beery."
Just a hint of halt that tastes like "Hawaiian" bread, slightly sweet and yeasty. Minimal hoppiness. Club soda in the aftertaste along with just a flicker of bitterness. Graham crackers.
A pleasant light lager sort of beer, but less interesting than many. Quite gulpable but totally forgettable. On tap at Tiger! Tiger! in San Diego.

3.5/5 rDev +0.3%
On tap at PP OB. Snifter.
A: Transparent pale yellow with a frothy white head.
S: Grains and biscuity malt with light orchard fruits. Apple blends with pear and a dash of sulfur.
T: Biscuit and toasted malt notes. Smooth and light with faint apple character. Low bitterness and a well attenuated finish.
M: Light and crisp with upper medium carbonation.
Overall: A good Cream Ale. Not an exciting style, but a tasty example nonetheless.
