A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short bright white head that left lots of lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a narrow ring of bubbles around the collar.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of bready and pilsener malts along with notes of corn adjuncts and faint bit of associated sweetness. No hops are detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This smells and tastes like a classic lawnmower beer.

interesting take on the style here and my first beer from these guys. its a little malty and a little hoppy to be considered a classic cream ale to me, overly americanized in that way, made bold, craftier, but maybe at the expense of at least a little bit of the drinkability. a bit of color and haze to it, frothy from the can though, crazy label art here too. i get the hops right away, this is aromatic and dry hoppy for the style, but i like what it adds. i suppose the hops take away a bit of the crispness, the lager-like aspects i like in the base beer, they linger and dont make the thing as fast to drink, but the flavor is great, lemon and tea notes, orange for sure, and a grassy greenness suggesting this is really fresh. the malt is a little heavy for me, i dont get as much flavor from it, but the body for sure. off dry, well carbonated, and coming across to me more as a dry hopped blonde ale than a classic cream, but i did enjoy it, especially in a warm weather vacation type context. big thanks to my brother for hooking this one up, along with a whole bunch of other awesome beers we had together on our trip! we both liked their crypto currency ipa way better!
