This one pours a golden orange color, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like corn, sugar cookie, bready/nutty malt, and grassy hops.

This is a nice cream ale, with a pleasant bready and lightly sweet malt character, and just a hint of fresh cut grassy bitterness on the back end. Cream ales are kind of what I grew up on, and this is a nice updated version of a New York classic.

This is lighter bodied and really drinkable, with a nice smooth and creamy finish.

I keep loving these lighter canned Grimm beers – they do a great job with them.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange, brief 1" off white head, light lacing. Nose is sweet grain and white grapes, almost like a white wine devoid of any oak. Taste is nicely balanced though between yeasty bread and sweet malt. Very reminiscent of a Genny cream, though dialed back on the sweetness and slight ethyl kick of that brew. Mouthfeel is smooth with a solid carb. Overall, delivers on what it sets out for.

A: The beer a tad hazy and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down and left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with hints of corn.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts with hints of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style.
