Smell: Malty, nothing really stands out (4/5)

Mouthfeel: smooth, lightly carbonated (4/5)

Taste: Malt tasting for a cream ale. Slight hint of sweetness and a very very low bitterness. Very smooth and easy to drink (4/5)

This beer looks awesome! I was expecting a lighter color for a cream ale but the darker caramel looking color is foreshadowing a hoppy take on this style - extra dark orange like a hoffner bass. Creamy froth up on top of this brew. Really sexy looking head that hangs out for a while.

Malts dominate the aromas with lighter German hops in the back. No booziness in the smell. Kinda smells like Boston lager -

Taste is similar to smell straight up malt forward brew with German hops- I would say this is a hoppy take on this style - not bitter but the hops do stand out for a cream ale.

Mouthfeel is rather thin for a 6.3 abv. Creaminess was not turned up to 11 bro. Slippery and goes down real easy

Overall I still need more cream ales on my resume. This one is the best one I've had yet. The 4 pack o' pint format is awesome and I will definately be purchasing this again
