Served in a pilsner glass
ABV is 4.8%, according to the bartender
Clear golden, white 1 finger head
Doughy aroma
Bready crisp taste, touch of spice on the tongue
Tastes like a wheat beer/crisp lager hybrid
Good lacing in the glass...head quickly dissolved
As the beer warmed, I got a nice hint of peach/apricot. Not overbearing at all.
Extremely drinkable

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a one-finger bright white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of crisp light malts with very small hints of sweetness from the flaked corn. Balancing out the sweetness are good amounts of leafy hop aromas.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Light malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by moderate amounts of flaked corn sweetness. Midway through the sip the sweetness is tempered by mild amounts of leafy hop flavors that carry through to a crisp and mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could easily have a few more of these.

Overall this is the best cream ale I can remember having - a very nice and refined yet simple beer. Worth a shot.

Poured a clear golden color, nice frothy one finger heading. Good lacing throughout and slowly dissapates after a few minutes.

Strong aroma of doughy malt with a good bitter hop crispness. Tere is that nice maize sweetness in the backend as well.

Taste is very good. Sweet light caramel stickiness of malt,quickly followed up with a nice leafy hop oil bitterness. The corn sweetness does pull through a little bit too.

Light bodied,great carbonation and excellent balance. Very light but n no way watered down.

This one shocked the hell out of me. Very smooth and refreshing. A perfect lawnmower beer and I would but this up against any cream ale.

A nice golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is rich and malty, with a touch of apple, inviting a taste. Flavor is thoroughly malty, like a typical lager but fuller and more satisfying, and has a hint of apple cider. Lively, crisp, sassy, and just a little rough going down.
