I never had a cream ale before, but this beer blew me away.

One of my homebrews a while back turned out very much like this. It was thin and watery with a diluted sugary taste. I've always considered it one of my worst batches ever. But now my eyes have been opened! If someone ever says to me "Dude, what the hell is wrong with this beer?", no longer do I have to hang my head in shame and apologize. My answer will simply be "It's a hijack clone. That's what it's supposed to taste like. Now drink up, bitch!".

12 oz. can poured into nonic
(no born-on date)

L: yellow, slight cloudiness but can see through it ... perhaps a hint of gold (orange) in it; weak 1/4-inch head of foam that dissipates quickly; keeps a decent collar of foam but there's almost no carbonation running up the column

S: lemon, grain, sour grain ... just a hint of sweet light malt but the lemon and grain overpowers it all; sour grain showing more and more ... hints of creamed corn

T: sweet biscuit/bread malt with a hint of pepper spice ... tons of sweetness; grain; taste is much sweeter than the smell ... there's no sour here

F: quite solid for a brew that looks half flat ... tons of carbonation, and a solid weight ... not watery; super drinkable

O: as i've worked through a six-pack, this one is growing on me. some of the new cream ales are almost sickly sweet and taste only like creamed corn -- they aren't undrinkable, but this seems to have just a pinch of some german/noble hops that is giving just a teeny spicy/black-pepper hop bite to help it balance. not a bad brew at all.

3.81/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours out with a clear golden color capped by an impressive head; looks like a pilsener and delivers nice lacing action

Smell: Bready with a hint of lemon and vanilla

Taste: Opens bready, with a touch of lemon building alongside the vanilla cream; the finish is slightly sweet

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshingly quaffable; a nice summer beer

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity
