I just noticed there are 499 reviews for this, so let me be lucky number 500 ;)

This is a fantastic beer. Its the beer I drank before I got into beer. Yes its a great cream ale. Yes its craft beer. But, you have to realize that in WI this has become as common as miller light, so I argue one should review it as a BMC beer. I give it straight 5's for taking a strong bite out of the BMC hold here in WI, and would give it nearly as high of a rating even if it wasn't.

Appearance: pours a darker shade of yellow to a light orange. two plus fingers of a white foamy head with strong retention and leaving behind a big lacing. completely hazy and opaque.

Smell: corn sugar, wheat, slightly creamy. a little grassy. a very light and delicate sweetness.

Taste: opens up with corn sugar and a little bit of wheat. some grassy flavors, but not to the point of mustiness. a subtle fruitiness comes in form time to time and gives off a bit of sweetness.

Mouthfeel: light, sweet, some juiciness. very refreshing.

Overall: this is the perfect cream ale as far as I know. does a really well job of taking all the good flavors of everything and combining them into a nice light and flavorful beer. I can see why this beer is so popular among non-craft beer enthusiasts too.
