Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Stinkypuss on 06-03-2012

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.

Very pale yellow, and completely clear. The beer has a thin, soon fading, head. The smell is of grain, a hint of pale malt, and some herbal hops. Muted aroma. The flavor is balanced, but subtle. Grainy and somewhat vegetal. Not really offensive, but not anything that I'd look to try again.

12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a fluffy, snow white head that has good retention and lacing.

Smell is of light fruits, lemon, biscuits and some faint hops.

Crisp, light, and plenty of carbonation in the mouth. Creamy and sweet up front, with a light hop presence which brings just a bit of bitterness to the finish.

Overall, a nice summer cream ale.

I got this beer at the Jewel/Osco store in Glendale Heights, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making this single 12oz bottle $1.67. No freshness date.

The beer poured a clear pale yellow color and made a 1½-finger white head that lasted less than a minute. There was no lacing whatsoever.

The beer smelled like an open box of lemonhead candies.

This is pretty much lemon flavored water with some wheat and corn flavors underneath. No noticeable hop presence.

Very light bodied, close to water-like, with higher than average carbonation. Not very creamy for a cream ale, but it is spritzy and refreshing.

It works as a summer refresher, but it's nothing that i would seek out.
