12 ounce can - $2.00 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.

Appearance: Slips from the can a reasonably clear, yellow-tinged body with, well, no real head formation despite some active effervescence.

Smell: A little bit sweet-scented on the nose with the expected corn-derived accents backed by a bit of malts and a faint, faint hint of fruitiness.

Taste: Sweetish in taste, with a flavor reminiscent of Corns Pops with a honeyed sweetness. Minimal citrus accent and a subdued hint of spice, with a low overall bitterness. Semi-dry, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's fine (for a cream ale)!

Poured into a Creature Comforts slim pint glass. Bottom of can says 121-15.

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that immediately fizzes away to nearly nothing. Practically no lacing.

S- Doughy cracker-like malt aroma with nearly no hop presence. Slight sweetness.

T- More grainy malt with a bit of sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. Very drinkable and not half bad considering the style.

M- Crisp and thin but not necessarily watery. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Honestly, I've had much worse examples of this style. A decent go-to for when you're craving a thirst-quenching beer without too much pesky character to focus on.

Ok, to syrupy/sweet for me, may have been nice with some hops in there,

Appearance: It is a nice looker, at first, with the liquid pouring out clear and golden and a nice head forming; but the head fades way too quickly and leaves no lace

Smell: Sugar cookie sweetness, vanilla and corn syrup tones; some bready grain underneath

Taste: Sweet and sugary, with vanilla and corn syrup flavors dominating; grainy with oat and wheat flavors developing, to some extent

Mouthfeel: Medium body, rather creamy, with low carbonation

Mouthfeel: Well, what did I expect as it's a cream ale

Pours smooth with full carbonation. Crisp taste with the finish of a cream ale. Overall good beer.
