Light corn and grain in the nose. Some earthy hops. Light golden pour, lots of bubbles, thin head. The flavor is pleasant. Notes of corn, grain, and bread with light citrus, pepper, and earth in the finish. Light body, drinks nicely. I like cream ales though, so I might not be the one to take the word on this one...

On nitro - mild citrus highlighted grainy malt character. A tad thin, not mitagated by the nitro, with a bitter corn grain essense.

BillKismet (3780) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Cloudy straw-blonde with creamy head. Flat lager hop aroma with a steam beer-like finish. Lightly bitter hop flavor with mild bitter component. Restrained, cold-conditioned hoppiness across a mild grainy and wheaty body. Crisp, with sour wheat and corn mash finish.

7/21/09 on Nitrous at the brewery. aroma is rich and corny in a positive way with a slight sour note. Appearance is clear straw with a well maintained white head. Flavor is soft with a sweet sour tang that never bites, leaving you with a clean finish with just enough of a taste lingering at the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is cream yet light bodied, with a moderate carb texture. Overall, a great summer beer for someone who wants something to kill the hundred degree heat without having to pop the top on a lager.
