This beer has recently been released in cans. As others have stated it's a classic example of the style. Very smooth body with a full mouthfeel but crisp and clean with soft malt notes. It finishes leaving you wanting more. It's a little more than your basic cream ale in my opinion but in the end, it's still just a cream ale and if you aren't hankering for something like it of course you will be a bit disappointing. Over all a great beer, especially on a warm night.

I'd call it a classic example of the cream ale. A little corn bite with the toasty malt. A touch sweet up front with a dry finish. Overall tasty and very drinkable on a sweaty day.

I didn't like this one quite as much as I thought I would, given that it has won a bronze medal at GABF. Probably I just haven't had too many cream ales, so I don't really know what to expect. This one was very light and mellow, but I didn't get the rice flavor. For what it's worth, they say that they removed the gluten in this beer, not sure if that affected the taste at all. But this is a nice summer beer if you're into the style.
