This beer is very smooth. Some cream ales are too sweet, this one is just right. It has a heavier taste than it's light golden color would suggest. It has no bitter qualities at all, and a fresh after taste. Good light beer, great dessert beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

gets points for 'hidden' strength.. tastes like a 4.5 percenter at 6%. there's something not exactly right about the late aftertaste.. a bit too sugary corn for my liking. sweetbread meets lemon in the taste. The mouthfeel is pretty good and to style, especially given this is out of a can. Which makes this a great poolside/golf beer. But not sure I could go further than 2 or 3, so that goes against that a bit.

nice for being in a can craft, but Bombshell Blonde or Sally is much preferred. just a touch too sweet. a little more hop bitterness and this would be much better.

do love the mouthfeel though.
