Bottle from CWBlues, 12oz into a tulip.

Unfiltered browned orange, dense cream cap with moderate retention and some lace. Nose has yeast, bread, some very interesting grain character and perhaps some dried citrus in the periphery. Almost a bit toasty or crusty in terms of the bready quality. Quite perfumey. Taste has more bready and grain character with some very interesting flavours brought on by the yeast. Almost a bit seedy, some veggie or fruity notes are around as well (in a positive way). Almost canned corn perhaps? And some pepper even? Medium body with some weight to it, medium low carb. A very nice cream ale, a lot of characteristics I can't pin down but it does a nice job all around.

Great option from an underrated style. Served in shaker at Mama Mia's, glass was chilled unfortunately. Upon warming, reveals copper color and thin white cap. Bready malt Aroma, which a crisp taste and tiny bite in the finish. A spring/summer beer for sure

Had at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan as part of a paddle.

Traktor is a deep golden yellow color. Patchy, but decent lacing, with only a slight ring of head. On to the rest of it all... I haven't had too many craft cream ales, but this is strange for what I thought the style was. But, I enjoyed it. I thought it had a pretty significant lemon sort of thing going on, also with a wheaty component throughout, with a medium, slightly creamy finish. It's not a hugely complex beer by any means, but this would be awesome to have during the summer, I figure. Clean, refreshing, and worth a try.

Thin head on a cloudy dirty gold body and some lacing. Wheat, pale make and grains for the aroma with a subtle milk sweetness. Flavor is more musty and malty with an understated cream sweetness. Mouthfeel isn't as creamy as others but rather a touch more tart and bitter with medium body and moderate carbonation. Sort of plain overall, not a very good member of te style but not a bad brew.
