On tap at Vello's. Pours yellow with creamy heqd, very light colored on both counts. Sweet honey citrus smell. Flavor is sweet but light malts with a rather dirty, lingering dusty finish. Light body and refreshing as a whole but the finish takes away from it.

Poured light yellow, probably straw colored. White, scanty head that didn't last too long. A touch of corn and light grains with a hint of metallicness, pears, and grass, but all of this is extremely light. Flavor is very hard to distinguish. Rather bland and not much to the beer. Not offensive, but nothing really standing out either.

I love to support local breweries. I have sampled other varities offered by Swamp Head and has been very satisfied. Got this one during happy hour at Cody's Steakhouse in Gainesville. I was served in a the typical pint glass.

Appearance - very thin with a hint of pale yellow and a watered down look at the top. Almost lighter than a Corona.

Smell - a very timid nose with some honey and orange blossom notes.

Taste - Again, thin, mild honey sweetness and minimal hopping. Very one dimensional.

Mouthfeel - smooth because of the taste but the dull sweetness gets to you after a while.

I would say this is a good session beer but I don't even think it falls in those parameters. I would just stick to their Big Nose IPA, and Midnight Oil Stout. That is where the flavor is.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: clear, straw with a touch of gold. Rapidly dissipating head.

S: malty, semi sweet

T: touch of bitterness. Malty and cream and honey notes.

M: Moderate carbonation, and light bodied. Very smooth.

Overall: These cream ales always taste more lager-like to me. I really have to focus to get the cream part but for what it is, it is done well.

huge thanks to frank for sending me up the barrage of ccb growlers, loving to get to try these. poured into a pint glass.

the pour was much the same as the chocolate version but with a little less head retention and a bit more of a hazed appearence. Very light aroma, nearly non existent at times with light hints of hops, light honey sweetness and a herbal note but it was all under an umbrella of grain and light grassy notes. clean and smooth again with the flavor with little in the way of aftertaste and light dryness in the finish.

overall a nice and solid beer, nothing out of the norm though.
