Golden straw color with a decent head that left a good amount of light lacing.

Smell is mostly malty, light hops and some... wheat?

Taste is light and creamy, but has a definate wheat characteristic that makes me think of a wheat ale more than a cream ale.

Finshed nicely, but doesn't seem like a cream ale at all. The bready flavor makes me look elsewhere but a drinkable brew none the less.
