3.69/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Poured a cloudy golden. The scant head dissipated into a ring of foam fairly quickly.

Aroma: Some sourness with a slight bit of pleasant funkiness along with some fruit and malt. Not a strong aroma profile overall.

Taste: The main flavor component is sweetness. Nonetheless, the beer has a crispness. The bottle says that corn is used in the brewing, and I can imagine some fresh ear-of-corn sweetness in the flavor profile. The hops come out as a floral with slight sweetness. The hops linger along with perhaps a slight breadiness.

Mouthfeel: The beer has a medium body and medium carbonation which seem appropriate for this style.

Overall: This is a very drinkable and refreshing beer.

Serving type: bottle

this style isn't my favorite but i was in a place traveling that didn't have hardly any craft beers to choose from. it was also one of the first craft cream ales i had so i'd have to say it was fairly good although it did have a corny taste. but overall i can't complain. it was a decent beer.
