A - Pours a light honey color that is very clear in appearance. It has a 2 1/2 finger bubbly white hear with excellent retention. Nice lacing as well.
S - very light aroma. Mainly malts. Biscuity smelling.
T - Pleasant flavor. Again, mainly malts. Grains, bread, you get the picture
M - Light in the mouth. Very smooth and easy to drink. No burn at all.
O - Great sessionable beer. The name is very fitting. It would be a great beer for a float trip. Very refreshing and would be great at the beach, near a pool, or floating down a river.

Canned 6/24/13, glad to see these guys are now puttinf freshness info on their cans.
Pours bronze with a pinky of fast faliing cream colored head. Faint head retention & lacing
S: Pears & crackery notes, a touch of perfumy hops
T: Follows the nose, some dryness & a bit of fuji apple up front. Pear & apple fruittyness/sweetness mingle with crackeryness & slight soapy/floral hoppyness as this warms. Finishes with much orchard fruit, even a touch of canned apricot & slight dryness
MF: Light/medium bodied, subtle carbonation, nicely balanced
Drinks super easy, a well crafted summer session offering that is going down great in this 90+ degree heat. Another solid beer from these guys

Pours to a nice golden color with no lasting head. Aroma is much like one of the better mass produced American lagers such as PBR and Michelob: grainy with a whiff of hops. Flavor is typical for blonde and cream ale. Muted malt flavor and low bitterness and hop character. Mouthfeel is light and quenching. Low alcohol makes it sessionable. Good call for a beer to sip all day along the river. To be honest, I would stock the cooler with PBR but reserve a few of these to enjoy at certain milestones.

Just bought this. This is very much a summer refresher, but hits the spot in winter as well. Pours a light gold. Some sweetness on the nose. It is a light mouthful. The taste is some sweetness with some hop crispness. This is an easy drink. Good Ale for BMC drinker to start with. Love the 4.5% abv. A true sessison ale. Something we need more of.

A - Poured a clear, orange-red color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin trails of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled sweet and floral with a nutty presence.
T - The nuttiness really came through in the flavor. Sweet toffee flavors with caramel and a subtle bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale.
O - This breaks the mold of traditional cream ales. I liked it.

Appearance: Golden yellow and hazy with a nice frothy head that stays around a little while before dissipating.
Smell: Some wheat, a little nuttiness, and a slight sour note.
Taste: Malt and wheat, a hint of sweetness, and some nice bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Solid medium body. Finishes dry and refreshing.
Overall: An enjoyable beer for the warmer months.
