Growler poured into a shaker pint. See-thru straw with a bubbly/fizzy head that quickly fades to a wispy skim of foam. A bit of lacing here and there.

The nose is fairly crisp and clean, but there's a fair amount of honeyish sweetness to this beer. Mild notes of peach and apple. Tastes decent enough, but lacking in the attenuation department. Definitely could stand to lose some of the residual sweetness, and to gain some carbonation. A little heavy and sweet on the palate for what should be a delicately constructed, refreshing style.

Served this 12 oz. can in a shaker pint. No date. The dull golden body supported a white head that quickly faded to nothing.

The smell was lightly vegetal. Anonymous fruit, maybe cooked peaches?

The taste was crisp fruitiness with a light sour/tart flavor. Solidly malty. Lightly bready. Pretty easy to drink.

The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied. Dense and zippy in the mouth but a little slippery and smooth in the finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served from tap into a sampler shaker. Poured a golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, and skunk. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, slight skunk, and earthy. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew, but very weak. The earthy aspect I picked up on was kind of nice. But in a Cream Ale? That shouldn't be here... This one is worth trying for a fan of the style or a ticker, but once and done is good enough for me.

Pint at Barley's

This beer would be a good crossover beer for a macro fan. The beer looked like a macro with a thin head. The taste was similar to a light beer. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth for the style. The drinkability was good. This beer could be sessioned with ease.
