Had on tap at a tasting. A nice hoppy lighter beer. I would call this a pale ale and is very well made and enjoyable.

12oz. can into Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Pours a foamy 2 finger white head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a semi-cloudy grapefruit. Lacing is spotty and sparse with no cling. Average for the style.

Nose is mellow sweet peach and just the slightest touch of sweetness and a sprinkle of spice. Pretty subdued.

Opens bright. Sweet malt body with a crisp, clean and slightly tart finish. Nice hop bite right at the end. No aftertaste. Solid.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp and refreshing. Clean finish with no aftertaste. Very quaffable!

Easily better than anything Bud, Miller or Coors has ever put out. I'd drink this. January is just not the right season for it for me.

Can. Golden body with a slight haze and a thin ring of white head. Aromas are pretty muted, as the beer is quite cold. Grain and lightly tart apples. Light sweetness finishing with a meld of bittering hops and fruity sweetness. Pretty good.

12 oz can into a teku glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw color. The head is a finger high, with a rough-looking white shade. Retention isn't very impressive, but nice webs of lacing are left on the glass. (3.5)

Smell: Pretty typical for a cream ale, albeit with a slightly greater hoppiness to it. I get both oats and cereal grain, along with some berry-esque Mosaic presence. I mean, it's just a cream ale - so, really, I just expect a gentle hoppiness on top of a canvas of crackery malt and cereal grain. In such a regard, this aroma is successful. (3.75)

Taste: It starts off with some slight fruitiness, evolving into a mild floral bite, with malt sweetness and vanilla cream flavors washing over the palate throughout. The bitter finish is somewhat out of balance, so I have to bring the score down a bit. Still, this one is reasonably tasty. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: Cripes, this beer is so refreshing. Combined with the light body and semi-dry finish, it really feels good going down the gullet. Carbonation is powerful, too. Did someone say easy to drink? (3.75)

Overall: Nothing fancy or special here, just a solid warm weather refresher. Shame it's so cold right now, because this could become a go-to for me during the summer months. (3.5)

3.46/5: Who needs Natty Boh when you got this?

A big thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, some citrus. Taste is crisp, grapefruit, light hops, refreshing and smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is solid brew, one I probably would have enjoyed more in the summertime.
