Notes/Commercial Description:
Light bodied and refreshing this beer is based on the Cream Ale Style...an original American beer modeled after the light lagers of its time. A subtle tartness adds to the crisp finish of the beer and makes it a good summer quencher.

A: Pours a clear pale golden color with a small head that fades quickly to no real lacing.

S: Mild aroma of malt sweetness with a trace of citrus and fruity sweetness.

T: Taste of malt sweetness, some citrus and bit of apple. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Very light body, crisp and refreshing. Comes across as fairly bland.

O: Nice inoffensive summer ale that goes down easy. Goes best with BBQ.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Pale ,clear yellow ion color, with a bright , white head of moderate foam.
Aroma-Pale malt, faint fruitiness
Taste-Pale malt, faint wheat, very light-bodied, almost watered -down mouthfeel. faint corn sweetness in the finish. Would be a notch above a macro brew in my book.

135 calories per bottle at 4.5% ABV. Unique Cream Style Ale with a light lager taste. The immediate taste is reminiscent of has cream beer taste with a slight compliment of lemon. The aftertaste is a bit below average and the smell is undesirable. Worth a try but not something I would go out-of my way to find.

Bottle says "malt beverage with natural flavors added". According to their website, there is no mention of fruit or spices or anything other than grains, hops, water and yeast involved. No freshness dating either. Pours to a thin but lasting white head with erratic lacing. Color is pale straw, almost like Bud Light. Aroma is grainy and biscuity with a slight butter tinge to it. Flavor is bland and weak but pleasant enough, just merely better than a light macro lager. Finishes super dry and slightly parching. Mouthfeel is so-so. Overall, I would classify this beer as a very weak but drinkable summer lawnmower brew. There's nothing wrong with it, it's just boring light ale and to be honest, I'd be very pleased to homebrew something this light and refreshing and technically pure. Honestly, I'd take a Schlafly Kolsch or Boulevard Wheat over this in half a heartbeat though.
