12oz longneck
A) Pours with a finger thick head, settles to a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear golden body. Semi-sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Mellow grainy aroma.
T) Sugary sweet taste. Slightly grainy. Taste fades quickly leaving a subtle bitter taste in the finish.
M) Light bodied. Creamy. Dry and tannic in the finish.
O) An okay beer. Nothing really sets this apart from other cream ales.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear straw color. The head is about a finger high and white in shade. I'm actually fairly impressed with the decent retention for the style. A frothy ring of lacing is left behind.

S: Has all the typical cream ale notes: cereal grain, butter, and crackery malts. Only a kiss of piny hops balance out the maltiness. This style isn't very exciting aromatically, but it smells well made.

T: The hop profile surprised me - it's not in IPA territory, but there is a subtle kiss of melon-y flavor at first. Near the back end, the more standard flavors of cream, cereal grain, and white bread come through. There are vague hints of white wine here and there. It's sweet, but not overly sweet the way most cream ales can be.

M: Surprisingly rich for the style. While it's sweet finishing, it's not oppressively so. Drinkability is good but not insane - that just means it's a nice one to savor. The carbonation isn't overly fizzy.

O: Not bad. It's not the most drinkable cream ale, though. For the style standards, though, it's quite good - its just hoppy enough to balance out the sweet notes. Also, it gives me another excuse to drink local (I wouldn't seek this out personally, though).

Poured into a pint glass. Pours straw color with a tiny head. Smells of cereal grain. Tastes of cereal grain, but stronger than adjuncts, with just a tad of hop bite. Beer is heavily carbonated, light bodied, easy drinking. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of cream, malts, grains. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, grains, light hops, some cream. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good session beer.

Pours a deep clear gold with a moderate amount of creamy white head. The head has decent retention and leaves solid small lacing. The aroma is light, with most it's most distinctive quality being dried grain. The taste Is also light but it has a little more punch to it, with more robust biscuit flavors and a nice clean hops. The body, too, is a light but not watery and has a nice clean finish. A solid, easy-drinking beer.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #90 (July 2014):

Clean, Grainy, Sessionable, Fresh

Sometimes beer just wants to be a beer, no fancy parading here but rather a super drinkable Cream Ale. A no brainer, just knock’em back. Proof that fizzy yellow(ish) beer can be of the “craft” ilk and taste great. This is the kind of session beer we want to grab liter mugs and throwdown!

Nothing spectacular, but as a cream ale it is all you can ask for.
