Pours a very nice looking cream ale. A clean and clear look, with a lot of carbonation. The carbonation creates a nice white head that laces throughout the beer.
Smell has nice clean smells to it. A lot of wheat and light biscuit malts smells.
Taste is awesome on this cream ale. Most cream ales don't have a lot of tastes going on. This beer, has a really nice malty base. A real sweet cream middle that gives this beer some great flavor and a hop shot at the end.
Mouthfeel is very nice, what you would expect on a cream ale. A nice thickness and very smooth going down.
Drinkability is very nice on this cream ale. So many good flavors going on that balance the beer very well. The beer goes down very smooth too, making me want another. Nice work Garin!

A: Pours a bright, clear golden color. The tall, white head has medium density and a somewhat fluffy/rocky texture. Retention is good, and speckles of chunky lacing adhere to the glass in random patterns.

S: Some light graininess and faintly sour/doughy maltiness. Some faint corny sweetness. Hop aromas are faint, with some mild fruity and herbal/floral tones. Some mild notes of ale yeast esters are also present.

T: Moderately grainy and doughy pilsner malts up front. Medium sweetness, along with some mild corny flavor. Hop bitterness is low, but present. Some light herbal and floral hop flavors. A mild fruity and tangy (even vinous?) yeast profile adds depth to what would otherwise be a somewhat sweet base beer.

M: Medium-full body. Smooth and creamy, with rather light - almost wilting - carbonation. A bit dextrinous until a faint drying nip in the finish.

D: A fine beer of an interesting style. That said, this isn't anything especially compelling. It is enjoyable, but you have to concentrate to find much complexity or depth. It does offer a clean overall flavor while maintaining a bit of yeast character.

Served from the bottle into a pilsner glass at Lizardville

A- Poured a pale golden color with one finger of fluffy head that left no lace

S- Very floral aroma, grapefruit, and barley notes as well

T- Nice floral taste, pilsner malt, barley, and nice grapefruit flavor. Much more flavorful than I would have expected for the style, while at the same time being much milder in flavor compared to most craft beers I drink.

M- Highly carbonated, very smooth, and slightly creamy

O- For what it is, it is a good beer. The grapefruit notes on this beer were a pleasant surprise. Very drinkable.

On tap at the brewery. A hoppy cream ale. A nice bitterness, and sme creaminess. Nothing special and in fact a little light mouthfeel, as if watered down somewhat. I suggest they take lessons from the guest tap, the nitro Mojo.Not too drinkable, maybe a transition ale, or smething for a pitcher outside on a hot day.

Had this on tap at the Beer Engine in a pint glass. Pours a pale yellow with a 1" white head that reduces to a thin ring clinging to the edge of the glass.

Has a malty, bready aroma, with hints of honey, creamy butter, grains and floral notes.

Has a creamy rich start, bready and pleasant, before hitting a slight hoppy bitter note. Not terribly complex, this has a simple, enjoyable easy drinking taste that goes well with my burger.

Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish, this has an easy drinking feel to it.

A decent brew which I'll probably get in a growler to go. While I've never cottoned to the craze for Geney Creme Ale, I do like this creme ale quite a bit.
