2.58/5 rDev -20.1%
Clear, pale yellow, pilsner like hue and clarity. Very tiny and slow bubbling. Two finger head that reduces to a half moon of thin foam.
Very light creamy aroma with faint unmalted barley and faintly toasted malt. Bland overall.
Very faint toastiness from the malt also get flavors of unmalted barley and some lactose. There's some adjuncty tasting bitterness on the finish. The palate is smooth but watery. This beer is easy to drink and uncomplicated.

Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1/4 inch head, gold in color, clear
Smell: grain, grass, and light wood
Taste: grain, grass, and honey
Mouthfeel: slightly sweet, medium carbonation, light body
Overall: I have only had about ten cream ales, but this one is near the tail end of them that I would choose. It is an ok beer beer for a hot day, but it is missing some of the flavor and body that others in this style have. Not a bad beer, but there are several others in this style I would go to first.

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.

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.

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, hint of hop, hint of cream, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of cream, pale malt, hint of rice?, and a hint of hop. Overall, weak body and the aroma is lacking.

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.
