A light golden colour witha small white head of foam. Patchy lacing as well. Their is a slight hop aroma of floral hops, that seem German or US to me. The taste reminds me of the best cream ale i've ever had. Sweet, malty, well-balanced, and not too complex. A light bodied brew that is imminently drinkable. A champion of the style.

Cream ales usually aren't my forte, but I enjoyed this one a lot. From the tap, the Capt. Selin's poured a golden-orange color with very little head or noticeable carbonation. A strong but pleasant corn smell, with a trace of malt greeted the nose. Subtle floral hints were also detectable. The corn is very apparent in the taste, as well, but its presence helps to make this beer very well balanced, and, true to its name, remarkably creamy. The velvety texture remains the hallmark of this beer for me. The medium body is incredibly smooth and feels great on the palate. Yet another good beer from Selin's Grove. Their variety and consistent quality continues to impress.
