Poured from a 12 oz can into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. Canned on 06/11/14 on bottom of can. Single purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Slightly orange pale golden with minimal head despite a reasonably aggressive pour into a clean glass. Head is nearly white, about 1/2-finger with poor retention and no lacing.

S: A little bit of pale malt sweetness with light corn and even lighter herbal, floral hops.

T: The flavor is kind of bland with some straightforward pale malt sweetness and light herbal and floral hopping, light amount of citrus character. I didn't actually sense any of the usual corn/grain sweetness until the end.

M: LIght and refreshing although it seems the carbonation is a little low for the style.

O: Not really much to write home about -- first HP product and not too confidence inducing but will move ahead and try a couple more this week.

pours a clear light straw gold with a finger and a half fluffy white head that fades very quickly into a thin ring.

Aroma of light toasted malt and grain.

Taste follows the nose with a light grain and malt with a very slight fruit sweetness and a slight floral hop finish.

Mouth Feel was light body, with moderate carbonation, smooth with some fizziness and a dry finish.

Overall very light and refreshing if your looking for a thirst quencher this is your beer. When I first saw this green can with t eh words "Cream Ale", I had a throw back to years ago when everyone in Northern Pennsylvania was drinking Genny Cream Ale. Thank god this was a lot better.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a hand glass.

A: Light golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, bubbly white head. Craters slowly and unevenly. Fair beer ring lacing. Sustained surface foam.

S: White bread and dish soap.

T: White bread, a little yeast, a little hop, and a little lemon pith.

M: Light and crisp. Little afterntaste.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is okay. Light, really nice head, and some fair lacing. Nose is very subtle with a bit of a soapy character. Bready with very light hops and citrus. Overall, this is an okay quaff.
