I picked this up at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making it $1.67 for this single 12oz bottle. No freshness date and no information about the beer on the label.

The beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a ½-finger of white head that dissipated to nothing (not even a rim) in less than 20 seconds. No lacing whatsoever. Not a very pretty beer.

There's not much smell to this. Picking up just a little grain - probably corn and a little wheat.

Weak flavor that's on the grainy side Tastes like corn sweetener, a little lemon citrus, and a mild hop bitterness (13 IBU's).

This is not creamy at all. Light body with low carbonation.

Not much to recommend here. It's drinkable, but not that good of an example of the style.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy golden color. An off white colored head that recedes to nothing, no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, another sweet note such as rice or corn added.

Taste: Immediate malt sweetness, faint grains, rice. Very light tang finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonanted, slightly creamy.

Overall: A bit harsh around the edges, so to speak.

Exposed pours a hazy golden color with a nice large lacing head. There is a slight garbage like aroma. The taste is mellow and creamy with hints of a nice spice. Easy to drink and nice full body for a cream ale. Overall a good flavorful cream ale, good full flavors, and enjoyable.
