A traditional American lawnmower beer, this golden cream ale features a medium body with a creamy palate feel. The aroma is a balance between subtle corn and malt-like notes with a very slight earthy and spicy hop presence. Pale straw in color with brilliant lightning-like clarity, Storm makes a great session beer being low in alcohol and bitterness, but complete with flavor. However, unlike the typical cream ale, no DMS or harsh corn like aroma is present.

Scrappy notes from 2016. 16 ounce cans purchased in Cincinnati, OH.
At 17IBU this brew has a delicate hop scene, a very nice smooth malt cruise with some wheat notes and some grain. A very tasty cream ale.

Purchased as a single can from Kroger for $1.67. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

L - Bright and light gold with a fluffy three-finger pale white head. Good retention of the head.
S - Sweet wheat bread. Herbal honey. A bit of vanilla sugar and spice.
T - White bread and cereal grains. Hints of hoppy spice. Faint clove. Grassy and floral throughout, with a clean mineral finish. Very well-balanced.
F - Medium body, with lots of carbonation. Easy to slam. A bit watery, but still flavorful.
O - A fantastic take on the style. Will purchase again if I can get it in a six-pack. Highly recommended as an inoffensive and quite good brew!

Light golden color with a light aroma to match. Crisp and refreshing with light hops. Very refreshing and reminiscent of a lighter cream ale. Solid, but nothing to write home about.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Look has a glowing golden color, thick soapy head that dissipates over time and leaves good lacing.

Smells mainly of wheat bread and yeast, along with herbal notes. Other notes of a hint of vanilla, sweet corn, and cloves.

Taste is quite watery and flat. Corn and some little spicy hops on the palette, but nothing really else. Tastes like a macro brew lager or something like that.

Beautiful deep golden color with a sizable, fluffy, white head.
Smell is rich and sweet with a nice bitter roast counterpoint.
Taste is smoothe and grainy. Light, earthy, hop bite that compliments the bready body well.
Not super sure how full bodied a cream ale is supposed to be but this one is a bit thinner than other examples I've tasted. Nothing shocking just a bit more toward what I would think of as a lighter lager than not.
Overall a really nice beer. Mild and well balanced, flavorful without being large or in your face. Nothing thrilling or surprising but certainly a pleasant sip.

Thanks Alanna and Richard!

A: Golden amber in color with a small light tan head that disappears almost immediately.

S: Whole grain bread, and herbal notes.

T: Bready with some sweetness, and a touch of biscuit and burnt caramel. Slight herbal character in the finish.

M: Medium light in body, with fairly high carbonation.

O: Overall not astounding, but not dull either.
