Poured a hazy gold color with a quick dissipating head.. Nice creamy malts with very little or no hop taste on the palate.. Good to drink anytime anywhere with anyone

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, this creamy ale had significant head. A strong bready smell is detectable instantly. Not as thin-bodied as some ales, this beer is creamy and delicious. I tend to like my beers a little more bitter than this sweet ale, but its a great drinkable beer.
