They call this beer a cream ale but the color is closer to a lager to my eyes. A cream ale should be a light golden and this one...wasn't. It should also be a creamy brew with lots of loft usually from flaked corn, this beer felt like a light pale ale in taste. There wasn't any distinctive characteristic, I was half expecting a twist like coriander or a hit of rye in the grain profile but I was unable to find any. The smell had a bad yeasty tinge to it and otherwise did not have any great aromas from it. The mouthfeel had a dry ending, but bubbly otherwise. This isn't a bad beer but it also isn't anything to write home about.

A: Appearance is clear, pale yellowish with very little head.

S: Aroma is weak consisting mainly of what and some malty sugar.

T: Taste is very uninspiring and weak - wheat and barley malts with some faint grassy notes.

M: Palate is very watery, flat, and thin.

O: Couldn’t quite tell the difference between this beer and a BMC. Very disappointing.
