cloudy and very light yellow, almost a white color. A large three finger head of fizzy white lace formed on top and then it faded quickly leaving behind just minimal lace on the top, but adequate side glass lace. Lots of visible carbonation was apparent. The aroma was very light, and somewhat sweet. Not really too much to pick up, maybe some light malts and a touch of bread but that was it, the style is not really know to be very full. The taste was very light, and refreshing. A touch of yeast or light fruit graced the opening of a very carbonated and light bodied ale. This was more refreshing then anything and it served that purpose well. A somewhat muted taste, maybe a touch of sugar and almost a cola like flavor in the back. Overall this was not bad.

On-tap at the newly opened Cherry Bomb Grill served in a standard pint glass a crisp yellow with a thin off white head that diminishes to a ring and leaves nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is crisp sweet malts and nicely subdued hops. The taste is a nice amount of sweet malts with a nice subtle hop backbone. The beer is quite light and crisp with decent carbonation. This is a very enjoyable Cream Ale for a late Summer day.
