On tap at Catawba Valley in Asheville. Pours a yellow color with white head. Corn, grainy, husk flavors. I’m not a huge cream ale fan typically, but this is pretty good. Good use of corn.

Sampled at Catawba. Golden with a little haze. A creamedcorn aroma along with soft malts and hops. A great lawnmower beer. Quite refreshing and light. Soft yeast, soft pale malts. Gentle and nice.

11/26/13. On tap at Barley’s in downtown Asheville. Golden orange pour with a small off-white head. Mild aroma, adjuncts, grainy malts, a hint of yeastiness if you search for it. Mild flavor as well, grainy, adjuncts, pale malts, barely a touch of spice if you search. Meh.

bottle. cloudy gold with medium sized, whipped, white head. fruity hops, a hint of grass, and corn syrup aroma. flavor of floral and fruity hops. a lot of corny flavors with probably some flaked adjuncts to add some creaminess. medium to full bodied for the style with a lower carbonation.

Can. Not so good. Golden. Light head. Aroma was a watery, grain like with wisps of a hay field. Taste was very light corn syrup wit a watery hay flavor.
