On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

On-tap at AleSmith itself, on to the beer:

In San Diego, everything is a little hoppier, and AleSmith does just that with this cream ale. Its yellow colored body is topped with a white head which retains decently. The aroma is made of crisp pine and a gentle nod of sweet cream. The taste follows the direction of the aroma, and tastes like a pale ale crossed with a cream ale. The pale ale character is clean and hoppy, piney and clean grass, with a kiss of the cream. That gives this cream ale a bit of a refreshment factor, as it's not as sweet as per style.
