Pours a pale yellow with a minimal head that disappears quickly. No discernable aroma. Taste is light with moderate carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Pours a hazy, maize color. One inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, adjunct, hint of hops, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of adjunct, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of hop. Overall, decent cream, lacking in any vanilla characteristics (though not required), and sessionable.

Taste: semi sweet, big corn notes, creamy mouth-feel, sweet nose. Gold, partly clear with a white some lace. Medium body, and a crisp smooth mellow drinking beer that would go with a picnic.
