2.86/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
First had: on tap at 16 Mile
Clear golden-yellow pour with a small white head; low retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuity malts, light herbal hops. Similar taste, pale biscuity malts, quite sweet, herbal, floral, and a touch of citrus zest in there as well. Light body. Not entirely bad, but not really my thing. A little extra crisp bitterness to balance out the sweetness might make for an improvement here, but overall, it's really just a blonde ale.
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev +19.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Poured into DFH footed pint glass; light translucent straw-gold color, lots of lively carbonation, and a moderate clear white head that fades quickly like soda into a slight ring of foam and some spotty foam on top.
Smells of buttery cracker malt, slight crisp hops.
Taste is light and crisp; buttery crackery malt, lightly spicy hops. Tiny bit of sweetness at the end. For such a light beer, it's not light on flavor.
Mouthfeel is thin and clean, but the carbonation creates a relatively full experience.
Overall, this is a tasty and quaffable beer that delivers lots of flavor with each sip while still being light and crisp.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet malts and fruity yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and has flavors of bready and pale malts along with hints of fruity yeast. Faint hints of bitterness are noticeable.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't that bad or a beer for the style and seems to share some characteristics that one might expect to find in a kolsch and a cream ale.
