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.

This pours like an albino blonde ale - super clear, almost like a cheap lager. Aroma was sweet and bready with a touch of citrus. The taste is surprisingly underwhelming for Beechwood BBQ. I am a big fan of Beechwood but not a big fan of blonde ales so maybe that's why this rating is a bit skewed. Overall the taste is very very light for an ale but maybe that was their aim. There is almost zero alcohol taste so could be a plus depending on why you're drinking this beer.

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.
