Pours a clear yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to a small amount of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, sugar, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with very sugary and slighty vegetal flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a slightly below average beer that is extremely sweet and somewhat of a chore to drink.

355ml can. Lots of pseudo Pink Floyd The Wall imagery in the label.

This beer pours a clear, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of wanly puffy, somewhat foamy dirty white head, which leaves some sparse island splatter lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of edgy pale grainy malt, with corn and rice watermarks, some mildly sour apple flesh, a familiar vegetal earthy hoppiness, and a metallic flintiness. The taste is gritty, grainy pale malt, more hints at adjunct grain hell, vegetal fruit essences, somehow, and skunky leafy, earthy hops.

The bubbles are pretty tame, the body medium light in weight, and only tangentially evocative of a cream ale, what with its plain Jane smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the pithy malt doing fine, I suppose, while the other short bus esters mill about.

Another wanna be craft brew from a common Minhas colluder. Nothing worthy of investigating, if you're into the style, or decent beer in general.

This is a good beer for a hot day if you are just looking for a decent thirst quencher. Its not complex, but is a vast improvement for someone who usually reaches for a Bud or Miller. i found it pleasantly unoffensive with a smooth finish. A good beer to steer the uninitiated towards more craft oriented offerings.
