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.

Pale golden with a very short-lived head  A weak ale in terms of both aroma and flavor.  Light body; enough carbonation to provide a touch of crispness.   No more flavor, and no better, than a typical light beer.  Hints of corn even. Smooth.

@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear medium gold amber, rim head, no lace. Taste is souped up MGD - sweet malt with corn that turns fizzy bitter somewhere deep in the palate, then moves to a short finish. It’s not that I can’t easily drink it, in fact, it’s a plus that it drinks easy. It’s just that there are so many better choices at a comparable price.

Draft at Barley’s. Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have creamy wheat, corn, mild fruit, floral nose, yeast, softer finish. Alright for what it is, but not something I would revisit.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent light gold with foamy white head. Smells yeasty with a touch of hops. Tastes like it smells with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alright.

Can: Pours a nice golden yellow with a big white head. I loved this... but I’m a sucker for a cream ale. Nice and refreshing, light but still packed with some flavor. Grainy... Corny... Tasty.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Draft at the Asheville tap room- Pours a semi-cloudy light gold with no head. Notes of cereal, wheat, florals, straw, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonatoin. Clean and funky. Nice, fresh take on a cream ale.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG 2014. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Good citrusy fruity, some apple, pear notes. Passion fruit. Hint of caramel malt. Medium plus body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, hint of zest, lighter sweet. Bubblegum. Some toasty bread. Enjoyed this one more than I should have, maybe.

Draft - Light sweet grains in the nose and flavor. Pale fizzy yellow. An average interpretation.

Taster at the brewery (RBWG). Pours a slightly cloudy gold with moderate white head. Mild aroma of perfume and sweet corn. Delicate flavor of flowers with sweet corn and vanilla. Surprisingly good! My favorite from Catawba.
