3.34/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 7oz bottle into a Sam hybrid glass.

A: Straw. Minimal head, but that might have been due to the pour.

S: Sweet adjunct. Corn.

T: It has an adjunct sweetness that finishes dry.

M: Nice medium body with appropriately medium-high carbonation.

O: A Cincinnati classic that I had to revisit in a more serious light. It's not bad for the style - finishes dry like it's light lager brethren, but with more sweetness up front, yet lacks the sugar-sweetness of a malt liquor (and thankfully the undercurrent of ethanol). This is an light beer that is simple but unoffensive.

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

A: Pours a hazy amber with a small fizzy white head. Head fizzes out pretty quickly, decent retention at least. Little dots and splotches of lacing here and there.

S: Sweet grainy malt. Has an interesting corn and wet hay aroma.

T: Mild, inoffensive and sweet grains. Again with the vegetal corn flavor.

M: Light-medium bodied. Pretty plain. Lower carbonation.

O: Well, it's a cream ale. Pretty simple, pretty sweet. Almost too sweet. No bitterness or hop flavors at all it appears. It pretty much tastes like an extra-sweet budweiser.

Scored an 8 pack in Cortez Colorado while in town for a job. Used to drink these like a madman back in the day. Even if they come in the tiny 10-8 oz bottle.
A: golden straw quickly disappearing head no lacing
S: staw malty smells like a macro
T: pretty bland typical macro
O: Gee I guess my tastes have changed I remember this being so flavorful and good. I swear I could taste the cream that makes it a cream ale. This was only slightly better than a BMC. on the upside my wife loved it. She went crazy for it. Wants me to get more ASAP ! Haha
