Pours a slightly hazy yellow with medium head. Resolves to an uneven, splotchy, lacing.
Smell is odd. Slightly skunky grassy hops and a hint of citrus.
Taste is a well blended mix of grain and citrus.

Pours a hazy gold color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of Euro yeast, hint of alcohol, hint of wheat, and citrus hops. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is quite sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, Euro yeast, hint of sweet malt, slight citrus hops, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma and blend.

This isn't bad at all. I get this for the wife when we're in her hometown in the Charlotte area. Crisp and refreshing but with some decent hop character.
