12 oz. can:

Pours light golden yellow with a thin white head that fades away. Minimal lacing.

The smell is mild - some grain.

The taste is of mild grain. A touch of non-descript hops balance most of the grainy sweetness.

Very light body, a bit fizzy.

A run-of-the-mill light cream ale. Not much character even for the style.

Poured with little head. very light with little flavor or aroma. the mouthfeel however is excellent with a creamy velvety smoothness. tastes like an adjunct beer but is aparently all malt. Not an overly impressive beer but would be a good session beer in warm weather.

22oz brown bomber poured into a snifter

Flowing from the mouth of the bottle, this beer is quite light in color. Filtered apple juice from concentrate is what I think of. Lightly fizzy, a thin head develops and disappears just as quickly. Relatively average looking, though it does invite you to drink it, as it appears to be a thirst quencher.

Breathing in slowly, the beer comes across as very clean smelling...not a lot going on, but what is there gets the palate working. Lightly fruity apple and citrus smells come through first with a very slightly musty grain following.

Taking a sip yields a crisp apple spritzed with lemon flavor that leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue. Just the right amount of sweetness follows with a touch of earthy/grainy coming through. It finishes very cleanly with a drying bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin and almost watery with very little carbonation.

All in all, a very refreshing beer that is extremely easy to drink. It reminds me more of some of the K├Âlsch's I've had, as it doesn't have the hop presence of most of today's APA's. This beer is nothing that will blow your palate to the moon, but that's not what it's made for...I enjoyed it. I just think that with a little bit more bubbly it would be even more refreshing.
