Pours a light golden color with a slight haze. Taste a light, bready malt base with a nice, slightly tart finish. Very drinkable beer available in cans. This is a quality summer session beer.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, some citrus and some floral hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character up front. Then some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to pound down for a long time.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of biscuit malts, some sweetness. Taste is bready malts, honey, light grains, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

Nebraska Ale Storm has a thick, white head, a hazy, yellow-gold appearance, and lots of lacing left behind. The aroma is of slight lemon, sweet white bread, and pale malt. Taste is of those elements, with a noticeable and mild ending bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Ale Storm finishes mostly dry and highly drinkable.

It looks as though there are now two entries for Nebraska Brewing Company - this one, which seems to refer to their brewpub, and this one ( for their production facility. As such, I am going to copy my reviews over to the production facility, since my reviews have all been of their CANned offerings, including this one. Viva The CANQuest (tm)!

From the CAN: "World Class in Every Glass"; "The pastime of baseball is perfectly suited to an exciting day in the stands with a wonderfully created and equally flavorful Craft Beer. Beautifully, golden and rich in both aromatics and flavor. Low hop bitterness allows the malt to shine through[,] resulting in a truly enjoyable and refreshing Ale."

At last! A non-explosive, reasonable Crack! Even so, I CANnot see the value added in tempting fate, so I am going with a gentle Glug. An in-glass swirl raised a finger of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head that quickly reduced back to wisps. Color was Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5) with ... wait for it ... NE-quality clarity! Yay! Nose smelled of fresh hay, biscuity malt and a light grassiness. Oh, man, it smelled like a lazy summer afternoon on the farm! If any brewery was going to pull this off, it should be Nebraska, where they understand farming. They also understand baseball, hosting the College World Series every year. Mouthfeel was silky smooth, unobtrusive and pleasant. The taste had a biscuity malt flavor along with a honey and hay taste. I remember my maternal grandmother's biscuits from when I was just a lad. Drizzle some honey on them, head outside & watch the tractor make its way through the fields ... Yeah, man! The CAN identifies it as 13.1 IBUs, which was perfect for the style. Finish was semi-dry and highly quaffable. Throw some in the summer cooler or just buy one at the ballpark, but this is just right!

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight citrus hops, hint of wheat, hint of yeast, and a hint of tea. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight floral hops, strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of piney hops, and a hint of yeast. Overall, an easy-drinking, good bodied for a Blonde, and well blended Blonde Ale.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of foam . It smelled of toasted caramel, grains and floral notes. It tasted of sweet caramel and a mild bitter finish.

Sampled last Friday evening on 6/19/15. Comes in a 12 ounce can that is brewed just down the road 15 to 20 mins away. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass plain stein.

Brew pours a golden-yellow in color with a good 2-finger foamy white head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. Aroma is of yeast and malts for the most part. Bit more going on with the taste as there was a light hint of honey. A bitter finish lasted more than I like. Not a big fan of this brew style for the most part. Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Overall, it was OK.

Very good for the style. Nice and malty, light summer beer. the taste is predominantly bread, honey, and light caramel. Not the most complex beer, but really skillfully done. I could have several.
