Draft. Pours really pale yellow with medium white head. Nose of sweet grain Taste is sweet corn and grain with ever so subtle hops. Not really memorable.

Draft at Asheville taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Not much on the nose. Creamy on the tongue. Not much flavor but thatís never been the point with this style.

12oz can from Hops and Grapes in Hickory. Pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet cereal and grain. Tastes of sweet grain, wheat, earthy, grass, corn, little yeasty.

ben4321 (4362) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Location: Can from Ri Ra, Charlotte, 12/2/14

Aroma: The nose is light and fairly sweet, with corn, bread, malt, and a hint of spice
Appearance: It pours a clody golden color with small ring of white head and light lacing
Flavor: The taste is along the same line, mostly sweet, corn and bread/malt, lightly bitter
Palate: The body is medium, slightly cloying, with a soft carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: This isnít a bad cream ale at all. The sweetness feels a touch on the artificial side, but otherwise, it is pretty tasty.

Corn comes through. Golden taste like a American no head boring flavor. Not anything I would get decent mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the source during RBWG. Hazy golden yellow color, white head. Aroma of dusty white pepper. Taste is fruity with light funk, smooth.

Keg @ Catawba during RBWG. Gold with a small head. Pretty bready aroma. Little else. Slight lemon and sugar cookie flavor. Smooth, without much personality. Cream Ales are pretty boring, so this is to style. Not bad though.

Can. Poured a hazy straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor were lots of corn, slight funk, oddly sweet, yeasty. The first couple of sips were intriguing, but then the funky, creamy corn got to be too much for me. I love farmhouse, wild, sour, etc., but this just didnít quite taste right.

Not the best from a really good brewery! Just as any summer release, this would be perfect if paired with a hot, humid day or just cruising around on the lake! Wished it would of produced more cream, as I would of liked the sweetness.

Tried on tap at Creekside Tavern. Better than I expected, but that is not saying much. Pours a hazy golden color. Some head that dissipates. All the grains come through in the nose and palate (actually a nice mix of wheat, corn and barley) - not much in the way of hops. So, drinks fairly smooth and refreshing but lacking in the way of interest/taste. Might drink after mowing the lawn.

Poured from a can. Pale yellow with fizzy ivory head. Aroma is grain and a touch of funk. Taste is malt and grain with a strange sweetness that tastes like corn. Light crisp body. Probably not a repeater for me.
