Poured clear pale golden with minimal head.

Smell faint, some clean grains, that's about it.

Taste crisp and clean, but really there's hardly anything there. It's just this side of mineral water. A bit of a cheerio note, a wash of mild hops somewhere. Pretty bland. Could pass for any macro lager.

Bubbly carbonation, adds to the crisp feel.

South Shore makes another cream ale that is pretty good. Why they've got this one in their year round tap list, I'm not sure, for the Bud Light drinkers I guess. This beer was unoffensive, but pretty uninteresting.

The Cream Ale was served in a standard pint, the beer is a hazy straw with a minimal white head.

It also has minimal aroma of a bit of grains and if you strain, plum. No off or odd aromas.

The taste is very mild. It is slightly sweet with a touch of crackers and a bit of apple in the finish. A bit bland, but its inoffensive with no off qualities.

Silky mouth due to the low carbonation. I'm not sure it even succeeds as a cross-over as it is very similar to a High Life or its ilk.

Pretty true-to-style cream ale, IMO. Pale yellow color with thin white head. Smell is faint, clean. Some noble hop aroma/flavor. Taste is lightly sweet up front. The beer is well attenuated and finishes crisp. This is a beer built for easy drinking but it doesn't completely by-pass the taste buds as so many mass-market pale fizzy brews do.

Originally reviewed August 17, 2005. On tap at the brewpub. Pours like thin apple juice. Stale macrobrewed smell (not an aroma), like sticky dried beer on the floor of the bleachers at a hockey arena. Flavor is so plain, I can’t describe it. Maybe some light dusty malt and a touch of oyster crackers. Not very drinkable. It makes you feel like you’ve been sucking warm Keystone Light all day, even though this is your first beer.

Pale and light golden. Some haze. Creamy, thin bone white head. Soon, it's just a thin film. Subtle malts on the nose. Taste is somewhat sweet. A little herbal hop wash comes through as well. A non descript beer. Decent enough to throw back one though.
