Growler: The lightest yellow can get before getting nearly clear. Light, light hay stained yellow and clear bodied. A starchy white head of medium to substantial size grows firmly to cap it off. Always keeps a fizzy skimming present and lots of lacing in droppy sheeting.

Aroma is soft and hazey with powdery breadyness and slight creamy sweetness of vanilla.

Nice crispy, creamy taste. Clean and rounded with a firm breadyness with a small underlay of wheaty-like malty sweetness and flour baked, unsalted crackers. Wet and soothing with just the right amount of taste and body.

Feel is pretty solid for a Cream Ale; as cream ales go, slippery, crisp, clean, firm, lasgint body. About medium in body with a soft finish thats light with a slight drifting dryness and an even smaller rebound of sweetness tantalizing the tongue as it does so.

The pinnacle of a summer drinker! Downable by the pint, growler, or keg; if need be. A solid Cream Ale for the hotter months and goes great with just about any lunch, dinner, picnic, backyard BBQ, whatever. Solid.

Brewed for the Madison Mallards. On tap at the Duck Pond all summer long. I’m told this beer is taking up most of the Dane’s Fermenter space for the whole summer. I sure hope it’s worth it.

A: Crayola yellow with nice nitro carbonation and a thick bubbly white head.

N: Cream soda, sweet German malts, vanilla.

T: Honey and vanilla. A pinch of lemon zest. Mild German hops.

MF: Light and refreshing. A touch creamy up front but clean and crisp in the finish.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink. A good summer time baseball game brew.
