A rich gold color with ample carbonation bubbling up. Smells nice, mellow caramel malts with a touch of spicy hops. Tastes good too: smooth mellow sweet malts, with a good measure of bitterness to balance it out, putting the drinkability up there. Great mouthfeel, full and creamy, of course.
A really good everyday beer when you just want something tasty and drinkable.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #64 (Apr 2012):
LOOK: Shiny gold, big head
SMELL: Clean, crackers, fresh-cooked cereal, herbal hop, mild nose
TASTE: Fresh, crisp, slick, grainy, cooked grain, hop bitterness, leafy, dried grass, hop oil, herbal; dry, grassy finish
A solid go, this shows more character than most versions that are true to this style. Balance and drinkability seem to be the prime directives here, both of which they nailed.

3.65/5 rDev +3.4%
Appearance: one inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, clear
Smell: sugar and toasted malt
Taste: toasted malt, grain, and citrus hops
Mouthfeel: light bodied, high carbonation, nice mix of sweet and bitter
Overall: A nice and clean lager. Nothing mid blowing and complex, but solid. This is a beer I would not go out of my way for, but I would not turn down either.

Had one of these out of a tall boy, as is 'Gansett protocol.
A - Light and bubbly like a lager, but with a rich creamy head. Golden with some nice lacing at the top.
S - Very subtle hops and stronger malt, however, with the same tinny finish of 'Gansett's lager.
T - Exactly how it smells - slightly hopped and malty. However, although the start and finish are almost imperceptibly different from the lager, the middle has a sweetness to it.
MF - Light bodied, but creamy in the middle. At the finish though, it fades really empty and has little to offer.
Overall, it is worth drinking if you like the lager and want something just a bit more complex. Other than that, I would pass.

Pours a slightly toasted straw color with a short wispy white head. The head settles into a sparse cap. Some random carbonation bubbles racing to the top.
The aroma is quite neutral, it doesn't smell like much at all. Good thing is there is no off aromas, but still doesn't smell like anything.
The taste is a of a light dry malt, cracker like. A smidge grassy and peppery from the hops and grainy. Very neutral but again no off flavors. Meh but easy to drink.
The feel is light and crisp. Slight bitterness keeps the grain sweetness in check. Easy drinking.
An american macro without the crap. No gross aftertaste, clean. It is boring.

Poured from the 16 ounce can into a perfect pint glass.
Pours golden light, active bubbles, good head of remaining foam. Chalky malty nose. Smooth lagery beer taste, citrus close. Creamy mouthfeel. Mild mannered, if not a touch sour. Good clean fun, though hardly remarkable.

16oz. can. Pours a pale golden yellow, with a medium lasting creamy white head, some light lacing. Aroma and Taste of biscuit malt, citrusy, some grains and grassy notes, light bitterness. A light to med body, crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation on the palate. Finish is some biscuit malt, citrusy, grainy, and grassy notes, some mild yeast and bitterness. Overall a good light refreshing summer session ale.

From the 16 fl. oz can marked 0412-0431. Sampled on April 20, 2012. The pour is golden yellow with a huge, off-white head that lingers. The aroma is full of pale malts and grain. The body is light to medium with the emphasis on medium and it is also smooth. The taste has a definite grainy character but it is not offensive. There is a moderate hop bitterness at the end. this is a delightful cream ale supposedly based on a Pre-Prohibition recipe.

Found this on the Cape and couldn't resist, especially when I say it was now made by the Rochester Brewing Company. Price point didn't hurt, under $6.00 for a six of pounder cans. All that being said, I think this is pretty much Genny Cream Ale in a different package, I'll be eager to do a side by side taste test, however until then, check my review of Genny Cream Ale for this one's specifics...
