growler, about as creamy as a cream ale growler can be. Perfect balance, light everything, very drinkable, great carb.

radagast83 (5819) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Draft at the source. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was light citrus hop notes, some light smoke? Flavor was light earthy hops, some light creamy notes, but a bit more like campfire.

ClarkVV (4353) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draught at Sunset Grille, 8/22/15.
Clear blonde body is topped by a moderate amount of white head that fades to cover steadily.
Light sourdough-like toasted malt, minerals, honeycream and just a touch of hay-like bitterness in the nose. Maybe not so cream ale-like but pleasant enough, with no flaws or alcohol.
Some sweet malt notes up front are quickly dried out by a biscuity character that also has some light cereal flavors, very dry, grassy/hay-like bitterness and very minimal fruitiness. Lots of club soda-like notes, a very watery, light body which is quite enjoyable and no flaws nor fizziness. Pretty nice cream ale, not quite as well-constructed as the Medusa Luminary I just had, but very light, quite clean and drinkable, if a bit unremarkable.

Draught @ Alesmith Brewing Co Tasting Room, San Diego, CA. Pours a clear yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, fresh fruitiness and floral notes. Flavour of crisp floral bitterness, grains, white bread and mild fruitiness. Light bodied. Simple.

Draft. Clear bright gold. Small white head. Nice pleasant hoppiness brighten up this really smooth, cream ale. Nice cracker and light grainy bread. Finishes clean. Very good, well made beer and a standout in a typically bland style.
