On tap at the brewpub in Portland.
Pours was clear golden-amber with a durable head that left plenty of sticky lacing: Impressive for style.

Aroma: subtle, with an about equal mix of hops and malts. Unusually, the hop component carries a lot of citrus.

Flavor: mild but strong for style, withno off-flavors and a relatively strong hop load.

Feel: light and smooth, but carbonation should be softer.

O: Recommended version of the style.

A - Light blonde, with little head.

S - Honey, little wet earth, mild hops.

T - Solid cream ale. As per tradition, this cream ale is lightly hopped, nice oatiness, light citrus and maltiness.

M - The most wonderful aspect of this beer is the smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It really contributes to the overall appeal.

Try this beer with a corned beef on rye and the Portland Timbers on the tele. Or savor it on an indian summer evening on the porch.
