Served in a green (ugh!) 7 ounce bottle. Even with a vigorous pour, there is no head. Hazy with a dirty gold color.

First impression on the smell is plastic. Don't know why. Light fruitiness. No typical smells of malt or hop.

This is a sweet beer that seems like a macro with three teaspoons of sugar added. Not creamy but I would say it is full bodied with a low level of carbonation. The aftertaste is similar to the aftertaste of Coca-Cola.

Little Kings - saw this on sale at HEB and decided to grab one

Appearance - A beautiful orange/carmel color that looks thing almost like hard liquor

Smell - A mild but delicious cream scent that hits you after the inital hops

Taste - A very clear but light cream flavor. Almost not beer like except for the good hops that came aftertaste. I just wish it was a bit more to it

Mouthfeel - Enough carbonation but I really wish it had some more to it, the head is almost nonexistant

Overall - Autumn or Spring beer that is almost a daily drinker

Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Pours a light copper color, With a very small head that disappears within seconds leaving very feint lacing. Smell is STRONGLY of butterscotch, Which is perfect for me seeing as it is one of my favorite flavorings. The taste somewhat follows the smell, Butterscotch with a small amount of Adjunct coming through, Though the butterscotch stay's dominant. The mouthfeel was really the only thing that disappointed me about this beer. Very slight notes of butterscotch in the mouthfeel, Followed by a strong cooked corn Adjunct flavor and a strong almost unfathomable metallic taste on the tongue and in the throat. Though the butterscotch somewhat save's the mouthfeel from getting a very low rating and it prevails in the end

Bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a straw yellow with a fizzy head, pretty typical for a cream style ale/lager.

S: Smells slightly bitter and dry with malt and little else.

T/M: Taste is surprisingly good, in a German way, like a nice pilsner. Medium carbonation, light body, just a touch bitter, smooth, almost creamy.

With the tiny bottle, these could go down real fast.
