A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, this creamy ale had significant head. A strong bready smell is detectable instantly. Not as thin-bodied as some ales, this beer is creamy and delicious. I tend to like my beers a little more bitter than this sweet ale, but its a great drinkable beer.

12 oz. can poured into nonic
(paper label on can says 11/24/14 ... bought can as a loose single at HEB, and no dating on actual can)

L: 50/50 opaque/clear gold ... no amber in it but there floaties, lots of them which is standard for Southern Star; decent 1/2-inch head of white foam that disappears quickly but leaves a tidy tight collar; slight lacing

S: creamed corn, corn, sour grain

T: sweet creamed corn ... malty mush with only the slightest hint of a black-pepper/English hop bitterness in the lingering aftertaste; loads of grain; hay

F: very nice ... an easy drinker with average carbonation

O: mostly a creamed corn mush but that lingering bitterness, though very subtle, helps smooth out the big sweetness up front; typical of the style, it's got a lot of American adjunct lager-like taste to it, but there's nothing wrong with it at all. a beer best suited for the hot months and while not remarkable in any way, I might call for one from time to time out and about.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy gold with small white head, smells of wheat and bready malts, tastes heavy on yeast and roasty malts, thin smooth mouthfeel. This beer would go well with a game of baseball.
