12oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass.

A- a clear bright yellow/gold. Half finger worth of head that leaves a bit of lacing.

S- biscuits and crackers with some mild herbal hops and sweetness. Smells pretty nice.

T- The taste is pretty "cracker-like". Saltines, and a bit of Ritz. The earthy, herbal hops are quite restrained, but can be detected on the backend. Quite crisp. There are some fruity/citric notes in there as well, but very restrained.

M- Light to medium bodied. Fairly carbonated. Dries a bit on the back end.

O- Being that most of the cream ales I've had have been trash, this one is pretty good, but still nothing to write home about. Certainly better than your average macro.

Excellent Ale! It is very refreshing as the bottle says! It has smell of grain and hops something not really used to smelling with a normal Ale of its style if you know what I mean. Anyway it has an excellent taste beautiful balance of malts and hops making the mouthfeel smooth and creamy with a grand finish!

I tried this beer on a beach trip to panama city. Being from georgia I had to try it. The look of this bite was interesting so I gave it a shot. Just like the name the color was golden with good head. The taste was good and rich and the feel was thick like a beer should be.

Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a crystal clear golden color with a two finger of bone white sudsy head. Head recedes rapidly leaving spider webbed lacing.

S: Nose is grain, corn, and a light fruitines.

T: Taste starts with a slightly fruity grain, pale malts, corn, and a good deal of breadiness. Some apple notes, and light orange, perhaps more of a manderin flavoring are present throughout.

M: Light body, medium carbonation, crisp, clean, with a touch of a slick finish.

O: Goes down easily, tasty, not filling, mild kick, nice representation of style. On my most recent trip to GA, this became my go to after work beer as I was prepping for the next day. Easy drinking and this would definitely go in to my "go to, poundable" beer categories.
