The appearance was a light yellow color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds and not leaving any head whatsoever. The smell had some sweet corn. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, it sat pretty light and sessionable. Overall, cream ale by style, what more was I expecting, not bad, just nothing out of this world.

A: Cloudy lemon/straw yellow colour, foam and lacing better than average.

S: Big noble hop nose with mild notes of bread.

T: Noble hops bring a tasty grass, grain and biscuit malt join in. Finishes crisp and dry.

M: High end of light bodied.

O: I read some of the reviews and they baffled me. My can is tasty and vibrant and a pleasure to drink.
