Perhaps I learned the hard way the cream ale is NOT my thing. My girlfriend who hates beer did NOT like this either. Her Father was an alcoholic and she has had a LOT of pain. This was part of my spice rack-style flight at the brewery. A guy at my work said this place was good. He DOES NOT know beer but he was right.

On tap at the brewery, quick review from written notes.
Served in a mini-nonic pint glass.

Lightly hazed straw gold, slowly rising trails of carbonation visible, a dense halo of drippy lacing forms and remains in the glass after the first few sips.

Earthy grain husks and light malt/maize sweetness in the aroma.

Smooth feel, light bodied, pleasant and simple flavors of grain and mild malt sweetness.
Very clean and sessionable, a simple beer with a broad appeal that makes a perfect pairing with ancho pork tacos, or any other foods on the menu. Hits all the style hallmarks perfectly. Simplicity is vastly underrated these days, and still misunderstood by the dilettantes...
