Availability: Year-round

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.

3.24/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.

2.86/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
