Picked this up at a great beer store, Tops Liquor, while at a conference in Phoenix. Nice clear, copper-ruby pour with a quickly fading head and minimal lacing. Kind of a metalic smell, almost like pennies with a hint of maple syrup and roses. The taste lives up to the name. Very reminiscent of shasta cream soda. Lots of creamy caramel with a hint of peach and tea. Very light, smooth, creamy mothfeel. Good drinkable summer beer that truly surprised me.

Poured from can into Oskar Blues pint glass a semi-cloudy amber, with huge off-white head. No discernible lace.
Nose is nicely toasted grains and malty. Kinda sweet, too. Maybe a slightly aged can?
Taste is smooth and malty-sweet, with plenty of toasty grain flavors. This is an easy-to-drink beer, light and flavorful. A solid and worthy warm weather brew.
