Can. Pours a clear and very dark golden color with effectively no head on it. Nose has some corn notes to it, and is very reminiscent of a traditional lager. Taste is actually fairly crisp and not too lager-y, and without the eerie sweetness I feared. Very drinkable.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a clear bright yellow body with a strong sea of carbonation and a snow white head that slowly boils away to a thin film.

S- The nice green sweet hint has a more faint sulfur note that dries it out just a bit. There is a field corn note in the finish that stays soft but has a nice compliment to the hops flavor.

T- The dry carbonic acid hint leads to a slightly sweet finish with a green sulfur note that takes on a faint candy quality before the woody hop hint in the finish. There is a gentle hop and field corn hint that lingers after the finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel is light and crisp but it has a creamy texture with the carbonation and thick head.

O- This beer is a great cream ale. It has some nice flavors that all blend and compliment each other. There is a touch of sweetness here and there to add freshness to the flavor but it says dry making it very sessionable. As the summer heats up this becomes more and more sessionable.
