3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: hazy straws – chill haze? White head is bready and smooth with a full collar and ambitious lace. Steady stream of bubbles keeps the head puffy and fluffy.
Nose: gentle sweetness. Angel food cake, white cake. Bread crusts to temper the sweetness without overwhelming. Gentle lemon esters. Dew-dropped cut green grass in the back.
Palate: creamy mouthfeel. Lemon zest and green grass lingers in the back from first quaff to last for some refreshing thirst-enticement. Dryness of bread crusts underneath with sweetness of angel food cake and white cake in the middle. Driest along the edges and tippy-top of my tongue. Honey.
Final Thoughts: yum! Not corny or grainy or adjunct at all but a true honey cream ale. The style itself may not be for everybody, but this particular offering from Cigar City was inspirational.

Cream ale with a little of the body of a bigger beer. Honey is on the back end of the flavor and in the finish.

he aroma has yeast and malt with low hops. The appearance is very light with a creamy head. The taste is like the aroma with honey and a touch of citrus. Not all that special but tastes pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Kickbacks in Jax, FL. Pours a unclear, glowing SRM3 white with a fizzy white head. Not a lot of retention. Nose is sweet grain and lemon moving to fresh citrus as it warms. Taste is heavy dough with apparent graininess. Soapy and powdery mouthfeel with small macro feeling "sting." Something like grains of paradise and orange peel in the flavor produce and witbier character that is overpowering. Very difficult to see past the witbier aspect...perhaps a style change for this one.

Aroma of yeast and pilsner malts. Pours very light with a creamy head. Taste of light honey, wheat and lemon zest. Not much substance but a pleasant drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewery. Light gold pour with a thick white head. Honey aroma with a nice grassy hop balance. Light crisp malt taste with a grassy hop bitterness. Easily quaffable and slightly one dimensional, but a nice hot weather beer.
