Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, pale, yellow-corn color, with a halo of white head. Nose of subtle toasted grains and sweet cream. Flavors are tangy sweet and roasted forward, with a toasted corn backbone. Smooth, light, and balanced in mouth. The aftertaste is light grain and cream again, with a smooth, light, crisp finish.

Serving type: on-tap

I am going by 1 day old memory here. Went to LaB yesterday and sat down at the bar for lunch after 4 hours on the road. Ordered a "1st Gear" first. I believe it was like a cream ale or something? Anyway, it was a medium auburn color and smelled pretty much like toasted bread. Taste was very mild and watery. Overall a 3. It was okay!
