Bought in Milwaukee, brought home to CT. Cask conditioned ale, poured from a bottle. Had a slightly cloudy golden color, nice creamy head with good lacing. Sweet aroma. Mild taste, subtle flavors with a bit of malt sweetness. Overall, a nice cream ale with a low abv, perfect for a lunch when you need to keep working in the afternoon!

A- A clear golden color with two finger white head.

S- Hints of spicy hops, sweet malts, hints of fruits.

T- Sweet, some citrus, light fruits, faint hops.

M- Smooth, light body.

O- A very easy drinking beer and enjoyable, would be great for summer. Nothing overly special but still well made.
