Beautiful appearance, pale hazy gold color with a thick creamy head that left my glass sheathed in a thick coating of creamy lace. Head lasted till the last sip. The smell was very faint floral hops but mostly a doughy yeasty smell, not bad at all. Very mild taste, no high or low points, just no real substance in any category. It was good to try again, will keep some around next summer as a good quencher.

The nitro in the can made a very foamy thick head that lasted through most of the beer. The mouthfeel was a little bit too creamy for me which seemed to hid some the beers attributes. It had mild grain flavor couldn't tell to much more. Could drink again.

Poured from a draft into a 20-oz. imperial glass at Hooley’s in La Mesa, Calif. Color was pale honey orange. Tons of head on the initial pour, the most I’ve seen of all the beers I’ve rated so far. Plenty of cloudy, frothy lacing on the top. Cloudy, creamy film on the sides.

Smelled of caramel bitter malts. Reminded me an awful lot of a pilsner. A tad bit buttery.

Initial taste was creamy and bitter up front, giving way to a smooth aftertaste. Bitter finish on the tongue after. Had an apple taste in there as well.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft-to-average carbonation. Long and bitter finish. Smooth.

I wasn’t that big of a fan of this beer, especially as the beer went on.
