*Review #100*

I can say straight away that this is a beer that I think anybody could drink and not spit out in disgust. It doesn't even taste like a beer, in my opinion, and that's the reason why. Early on, I got a lot of a vanilla/vodka flavor. After a few sips, I pretty much tasted nothing ... and there was no bitterness. I rate it as highly as I do because it's super sessionable, drinkable, inoffensive, and just really good for any occasion. Not just that, but the bottle's attractive ... especially, I'd think, for the female drinkers. The bottle's a measly 7oz.

A - dark copper with a short-lived, bubbly, white head; there are a ton of carbonation bubbles rising to the top

S - cereal grains

T - cereal grains, a bit sweet, a little grassy

M - light bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a light, very sessionable beer that can replace and American lager. There's just enough flavor to keep you interested and a light body that allows you to put away several of these little bottles.

Two 7oz bottles poured into a pint glass.

Pours a clear medium gold with a one finger white head. Pretty decent head retention and lacing; I was quite surprised.

Aroma is corn and some cooked vegetables. Some fairy faint hay and grassy hops are detectable. Really nice aroma for the style.

The flavor has lots of cooked vegetables up front along with some vanilla and corn. I can pick out some breadyness along with a little bit of hay and grass. Bitterness is nearly non-existent and the finish is on the sweet side.

Overall, a fairly non-offensive, although below average, cream ale. The sweetness limits drinkability somewhat but I could see having a few every once in awhile.
