12 oz bottle, while down in OBX. I often find cream ales to be a bit deceiving, because you think you're going to get this heavy, sweet ale. Instead, they often remind me of Kolsch style, or a basic golden lager even. Some have a touch of sweetness from the malt, but I enjoy them for their clean, crisp flavor.

From a 12 ounce bottle into a plastic cup at an airport sushi bar. Hazy golden color no precipitating carbonation thin white collar decent retention. Bready citrus nose. In the mouth slightly hop forward bready crisp citrusy. Mouth wet and quenching with correct level of carbonation. Overall satisfying sessionable easygoing pairs well with sushi.
