Poured from a 12 oz. can, and yes, since you asked, that can did reach me by way of the incredible woodychandler. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, some grains and malts are present. Taste is grains, bready malts, a bit of lemon, a good thirst quencher. Feels medium bodied in the beer and probably would be better enjoyed on a hot, summer day.

Golden yellow in color with a slight haze. Poured with a billowy, fluffy white foam that reduced to a wispy cap. Bread , cereal and cornmeal aromas with light floral and metallic notes at the end. Smooth, delicate, creamy feel with a light crispness near the end. Bready malt and corn flavors up front followed by light tangy herbal hops through the middle. Herbal bitterness overtakes the sweet bready malt at the end as this finished with a semi-dry crispness and lingering yeasty and herbal hop bitterness.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a two finger thick and billowy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the heaviest of a cracker like aroma mixed with a bit of wheat and some slightly yeasty smells. Along with these aromas comes some sweeter aromas of a caramel and toffee nature as well as a hint of a grassy smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a slightly sweetened bready taste with some notes of a yeastiness mixed within. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade a bit giving way to more grainy and grassy tastes. All the while a little bit of a sour lemon and an apple taste come to the tongue and with the grassy and hay flavors getting stronger and leaving a somewhat drier and rather crisp taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thins as would be expected for a brew of only 4.2 % with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style and very light abv. nature of the brew the feel is great and makes of a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – A decently easy drinking and less sweet cream ale. A good session style brew.
