Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a golden color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades rather rapidly, leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a corny smell mixed with some other aromas of a grainier aroma. Along with these smells comes some other smells of a light grass and hay smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat smooth corn and grainy taste mixed with some sweetness of a caramel flavor. The more corn syrup sweetness takes out the caramel soon after the initial tastes all while the graininess fades away to a more bready and doughy taste. In the end, with a light level of an herbal flavor and some more graininess coming to the tongue one is left with a sweet and rather smooth taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is slightly higher. For the mix of corn, grain, and sweeter flavors of the brew, the feel is rather nice and makes for a rather easy drinking brew overall.

Overall – An easy drinking and rather inoffensive cream ale with a decent corn flavor blended with a moderate level of grain and sweet. Not a bad, easy drinking brew overall.

Poured from Growler into a pint glass same day it was filled from a tap.

The beer has a small white head that has diminishing tiny bubbles. It has excellent lacing. The body of the beer has a nice Golden colour with no chill haze or sediment present.

The smell is deceptive for this beer..It has a malty, earthy, and spicy nose; not a bad smell but it does not match the flavour of the beer

This beers strongest suit.. It has a "cookie" like flavour with hints of citrus and floral flavours. It is very refreshing. There is no lasting after taste noted or other odd tastes.

It is smooth and velvety and matched perfectly with a light/moderate carbonation. The feel is a bit heavier than expected from its appearance that said, it would be suited for drinking in nearly any month of the year.

Overall, this beer has become one of my favourites after this tasting. I will most certainly pick up more of this in the future! However, this beer might be better labeled as a Golden-Blonde-Kolsch Ale as it fits the style better than a cream ale. Great Job though!
