Light in color, good foamy head. Smells slightly apple-y, almost like a sour mixed with a PBR. The beer is..... creamy, but doesn't weigh the tongue. It's exceedingly balanced and easy to drink while treating the drinker to distinct and pleasant flavor with every sip. Pleasantly surprised with this beer.

L- pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a one finger fluffy, white head. Has a little carbonation.
S- smell of sweet corn, malt, and hop. Slight lemongrass.
T- plenty of biscuit cracker with sweet malt. The Hop is secondary but more than I'm used to in a cream ale. Makes a wonderful combination.
M- nice crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.
O- one of the best cream ales I've had.

12oz can. Poured out a pale, golden color with a white head of fluffy foam. It smelled of citrus, bread crust and toffee. Sweet caramel flavor with some mild roastiness and bitterness. Hint of orange, too.

only loosely a cream ale to my palate, this one covers a lot of ground for such a light and pale and drinkable beer, nice to see a brewery put as much thought and obvious care into the light pounders as the do to the more ambitious stuff, this is really tasty. its pretty clear and sort of matte golden looking, lots of bubbles but they seem to pop more than they collect into much head, a thin white layers is all that holds. this immediately seems bold for a cream ale, i get a crackery euro pils malt complexion up front, oddly enough some wit type elements, fruity and estery there, and then also more hops than are usually found in a traditional cream ale. the flavor shows a pretty complex garin layering with pale wheat and pilsener malts obvious, giving some serious character to what usually is a somewhat unremarkable style in terms of the mash. the corn part here is subtle, this isnt sweet like that at all, but its nicely unique, still delicate overall, but just a lot more happening here than in most. its not overly hopped either, but there is more than just a finishing bitter note, dried orange peel and lemon, part of what makes this also a little wit-like. it doesnt seem belgian in the yeast or anything, but i think from these fruitier hops and from the wheat malt i get sort of two thirds of a good wit here, i like it a lot! subtle white grape and orange as it fades out, and of course the pils malt. overall a killer beer, as flavorful as the crushers get without being session ipas!
