On-tap at AleSmith itself, on to the beer:

In San Diego, everything is a little hoppier, and AleSmith does just that with this cream ale. Its yellow colored body is topped with a white head which retains decently. The aroma is made of crisp pine and a gentle nod of sweet cream. The taste follows the direction of the aroma, and tastes like a pale ale crossed with a cream ale. The pale ale character is clean and hoppy, piney and clean grass, with a kiss of the cream. That gives this cream ale a bit of a refreshment factor, as it's not as sweet as per style.

A well executed thirst quencher that won't leave you inebriated after a few quick pints on a warm, sunny SoCal afternoon.

Draft at Beer Shoppe. Enjoyed most everything about this beer, but felt my pour was over carbonated. Would like to revisit to see if the taste/finish were impacted by the carbonation.
