16oz can courtesy of Trent!

It pours a straw yellow with a 2 finger head of foam.

I get floral hops and some caramel malt in the smell.

The malt in the taste is more of a grainy variety with the hops giving me a lemony kind of bitterness, not tartness, mind you. A bit of corn is noticeable but not a huge detraction.

Fairly light bodied, it does have a weak kind of watery finish.

Cream Ales are not a style that will turn heads but...this is a very good example of the style and it is certainly an easy drinking brew. I like.
