Poured from a bottle into a stemless wine glass

A- pours a cloudy shade of yellow with a one finger white head that fades very quickly. The head was a great color, but didn't stick around at all. The beer looks like lemonade. Yikes.

S- slight corny aroma, though it's not very pleasant...true to style, I guess

T- starts a little cloyingly sweet, finish is actually a tad bitter. Tastes a lot like macro swill, to be honest

M- very thin body, moreso than most typical examples of the style

O- just a disastrous cream ale. When done properly, it's a lovely style, but this is just...no

12 oz. bottle. No bottled on date present. Uncapped and poured to a Boulevard tulip. This will be my first beer resembling the cream ale style, so I'm not too sure what to expect.

A - Pours an extremely cloudy lemon color. Looks like a more full-bodied version of a Miller Lite or some other such swill. Virtually no head on top, with a couple of bubbles stuck to the sides of the glass.

S - Again, on the track to resembling such swill as a Miller Lite or a Miller Genuine Draft. Smells of carbonated chemically treated corn husk with perhaps some vague hint of unrecognizable spice buried in the end. Some very vague citrus note is present in there, also. The "cream" flavor really only begins to present itself by the time the beer has warmed up significantly, and you are practically finished with it.

T - Resembles the smell almost to a tee. Not nearly as carbonated or bloating as I would have expected, judging by the quality of the smell. Definitely tastes very corny and mealy. Dry finish. Not a whole lot of flavor to be had out of this one, though. Cream ale? Doesn't taste at all how the style makes you think it would taste like. Very faint hint of citrus at the end, and a faint cream taste near the end as the beer warms up.

M - Mouth feel is good. Nice medium body, and nicely balanced. Again, very dry in the finish. No real flavor was there in the first place, so nothing really lingers about.

Overall, this brew tastes more like a well-made lager than it does a "cream ale" although this was the first one I've had. Nothing special, more like a quality Miller Lite or Bud Light than it is an actual "craft" beer. Still a step above mass produced swill, but not great by any means, but I would drink it again if I had the chance.
