Pours light straw in color with light honey, light corn and soft floral notes from the German Noble hops. Flavor has moderate floral bitterness with notes of corn and light notes of honey. Light bodied and thirst quenching, this is one of our lightest offerings.

Tasted at the Grovetoberfest in Miami,Fl.

Pours light straw in color with light honey. Nice, little head, almost a finger. You can smell light honey, corn, and some floral notes, but not spicy, just smooth floral essences. Like a caramel rose. Flavor has moderate floral bitterness with notes of corn and light notes of honey and sugar. Light bodied and thirst quenching. Excellent beer that I would buy without problem. You can taste the big effort that this company did on this beer!!

On-tap at the tasting room. Hazy gold color with foamy white head, big splotches of lace left on the glass. Smell: pale malt, honeyed sweetness. Mild floral hop. Taste: sweet pale malt, metallic, mild lemon. Drying finish, creamy, light to medium bodied. Cream ales are not my thing, but this was pretty enjoyable.

Pours a clear, bright, golden yellow with a biggish white head that dissipates rather quickly. Amazing lace.
Smell is malty with notes of citrus, hops and pepper to balance it out. A slight musty note spoils the party somewhat though it might be the glass.
Taste is a pretty good. A bit hoppier than I expected, kind of came across like a flavorful and slightly malty version of a regional lager but quickly blossomed into a more worthy brew with notes of malt, hops with fainter notes of pepper, citrus and vanilla.
Medium-bodied and an solid effervescence on the tip of the tongue that just disappears. A decent beer but sadly not up to the standards of CCB. Or maybe its my bias towards stouts and other big, malty beers.
