Served in an Innis and Gunn cervoise.

I needed more cream ales in my life (and down my gullet), so I grabbed some o' this stuff. Get some. It pours a clear sallow (damn, is this shit pale!) topped by nearly two fingers of almost glowingly white foam. The nose comprises mild corn, wild rice, vague sweetness, and a tiny touch of what may or may not have once been grass. The taste rebounds a bit, kicking that aforementioned sweetness up a notch and marrying it at various points with mild flowers and even milder corn. It may not sound all that appetizing, but it really ain't bad. Just...not all that great, either... The body is a hefty-feeling light, with a moderate carbonation and a slightly slick feel. Overall, this could have been a decent cream ale, but it seems as though MKE went in the cheaper direction, making something that doesn't even stand up nicely to Little Kings or Genny Cream. Yeah, it's not really bad, per se, just nothing I would readily call "good".
