on-tap at 8th Wonder Brewery

L: pale gold with white head, no stick or lace; 100% clear with little to no amber

S: green grassy hoppy with hints of bread/sweet malt behind it; this brew was definitely dry-hopped -- or it comes off that way. nothing overboard but definite grass

T: grassy hop bite up front but immediately sweetened out by a strong malt backbone; nothing about the brew tastes like "cream" until about halfway into the pint, and then suddenly this creamy light sweetness takes over the hops and it tastes like whipped cream ... again, it's not overboard, but that sweetness really starts hitting home over time

F: solid all around, very drinkable without being watery

O: easily my favorite 8th Wonder brew of the three I tried at the brewery (MCA, Alternate Universe were the others). it's much more hoppy than "cream ale" sounds like it should be, but the sweet cream notes shine through over time -- and whatever it is, I love it. they're supposed to start canning this summer, and I'll be searching for this one when they do.

Pours hazy golden colored with finger width foamy head. Great head retention and Excellent lacing on side of glass. Grassy, bready, sweet aroma. Bready malty backbone up front with nice grassy hop at the end. Mildly Creamy taste right at the end with slightly soapy/astringent aftertaste. This is my first dive into a cream ale. Not sure if this is representative of the style, but it is quite good.
