Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains mostly on the nose, not much else; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with cereal grains and just a slight sweetness. Really didn't get any honey on this one.

Great color, great lacing. Aroma is ambiguous. Taste is mostly dry. A tad hoppy. It's not a sweet cream ale; that's for sure!
