This is why I like micro brewers: they have the balls to experiment with things. I’m not rating this real high because I find it overall mediocre. But I give the brewer great credit for trying different things. When Miller or Bud even attempts to do anything even slightly different, they put a different label on it to hide their name (like Millers "Plank road brewery" B.,S.) Cowards. Like putting Alan Smithy as the director of your film. for shame!!!!
I’m not a big cream ale fan. But adding a bunch of hops to an otherwise dry, flat, flavorless cream ale is actually a good idea, IF you ask me! Corny, creamy aroma, average yellow pour, pussy wimp head, dry/quick finish flavor with a decent hop aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours clear and peach-colored with a small white head. The aroma is reminiscent of Nestlé Nestea - black tea and lemon - with a smidge of tea biscuit. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is refreshing, grainy and balanced nicely. There are notes of black tea, honey and biscuit here. Crisp, dry finish. Inoffensive. Cleanly-brewed, but boring. Bottle courtesy of Bvery!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a darker, hazy golden, with a thin white head. The aroma consists of grassy hops, yeast, bread, and cereal. The taste is rather bland. It has plenty of breadiness, bits floral and grassy hops, and a bit of apple fruitiness. Aftertaste is lacking, although I guess you could classify it as bready and short. Medium bodied and in texture, and about average in carbonation. This one doesn’t have anything exciting at all going for it. Very generic.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kind of a weird combination of flavors in this one. A little hop aroma on the nose with some sweetness. On the palate there is a bit of pine, and some cream flavors as well. They contradict and make this interesting but just a bit weird for me.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is grains, sweet and perfume. Taste is sweet, grains, a little spice, yeast with minimal bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good tasting sessionable beer. Overall above average cream ale.

Eh, hop aroma is there and it is nice, but the taste is just not there. A mildly sweet ale that has a weird aftertaste. Bought from total wine and more in Viera, FL.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Poured into tulip at home. Sort of a hazy golden yellow with one finger white head. Head gone in 30 seconds and very little lacing. Aroma of cereal, light pine, and other grains. The taste was mild with cereal, wheat bread, pine, and a malty creaminess. Refreshing and light. Smooth mouth, creamy finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy straw color with very little head. Aromas are grain, caramel, and yeast. Very smooth lager-like flavor without much bitterness despite the supposed hop infusion. Pleasant enough for what it is.
