3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at brewery. Pours clear and golden yellow with white head. Not much on the nose. There’s a corn sweetness on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s the best of a shit style. They probably made it for all the people who tag along with the beer geeks who ask for the closest thing to Coors Light.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ AleSmith. Nice golden lemon color with a tightly packed ivory head. Citrus, lactose, creamsicle-like with a thick, coating texture and light carbonation. Not a huge fan of the style but this was tasty and highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Alesmith. Pours golden yellow, with a thick eggshell white head. Smells like sweet malt, grassy hay, bread and a little musky hops. Taste is bread, wet hay, light malt and a little hops. This is a thin bodied carbonated beer. Reminds me more of a lager than a cream ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the brewery. Pale gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The nose was light and somewhat indistinct with hay and grass. The flavor was rather pleasant with hay, breads, gains, biscuit and a touch of vanilla. The palate was full and smooth with medium carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: decent cream ale.

On tap at brewery. Clear light golden with a creamy white head. Sweet oaty malty and lightly hoppy aroma and taste with a crisp citrus finish and a lingering malt taste. Beautiful soft creamy palate. Outstanding. Best cream ale I’ve ever had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Hopping Pig - San Diego, CA. Light pale malt nose. Flavor is very easy going and lightly sweet. Clean and gentle. There are some deeper, slightly starchy qualities to the mid-palate, but on the whole, no surprise, AleSmith makes a cleanly, friendly, and fresh Cream Ale that goes down easy.
