I tried the Foam Top at the brewery. It poured a clear yellow with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent and taste were fruity and sweet. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The pour is a pale straw color with a white head.

S: Definitely some corn along with straw and grassy hops. There's a light floral note to it as well, and some biscuit malts and a bit of bread. Pretty basic cream ale aroma.

T: Slightly sweet with toasted grain, corn, biscuit malts, and bread. A soft hop bitterness, and some floral and grass notes. Somewhat sweet, but overall, a nice balance.

M: Light in body with a medium carbonation.

O: Cream ales are usually sort of a throwaway offering at a brewpub, but this one was a nice, balanced, easy to drink beer.

Served on-draught into a strange curved pint glass at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, California. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of white colour, decent thickness, slight cream, and bad retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper.

Sm: Clean barley and malts. That's it. Very simple. A bit bland.

T: Clean full barley body without too much sharp carbonation. Hints of honey. Surprisingly little cream for a cream ale. Simple but fairly balanced. Boring but enjoyable. Pleasant and drinkable. It's no Kilkenny, but I like it.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nice thickness. Adequate carbonation. Fairly complementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Drinkable but a bit boring. I don't think I' get it again. Very drinkable - its best attribute.

C+
