CC mini growler thanks to David. Pours a clear golden/orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet oranges and apple. The flavor is much like a fruity bitter; sweet citrus and light bitterness, earthy, smooth. Nice. Lots to like here despite being very light.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Aromas of honey, grass, grain and fruit. Flavors of honey, bread, grass, grains and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel was blah, which is to be expected for this style. As far as Cream Ales go this is one of the better ones I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light honey and sweet malts are the main points of notice in the aroma. This one goes down super smooth, with lots of honey and some ever so slight hops and some caramel malt. Natural honey flavor is probably the best quality of this beer. Too many beers boasting honey in the name come off tasting too refined and almost unnatural in flavor. This one is nice. Easy to drink. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour was a light yellow, and had a nice bubbly head. Smelled mellow of honey, hops and light citrus. The flavor was light, consisting of honey, hops and having a bitter/spicy finish. This cream ale was light, and had a pleasant fruity background, but was TOO light for a cream ale if you ask me. Ask me.

Sample at the tap room. This beer is a clear golden color with a thin white head that recedes to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet honey and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet fruit, grassy hops and malt. The finish is fruity with a grainy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Growler from the brewery. Pours pale honey color with white head. Cereal grain aroma with some floral and perfumey notes. Similar flavors. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. I didn’t care for this one too much.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the tasting room. Nice clear bright yellow pour. Big frothy white head. Sweet aroma of straw and lemons. Taste was very crisp and clean, citrus, grass, slight bitter on the back. Decent beer would be great poolside on a super hot Tampa day.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up on tap at Cigar City Brewing Tap room with deep gold body and white head. The aroma is sugary sweet malts, fresh grainy malts and sharper lemon like citrus notes. The taste is a mix of honey sweetness, grainy fresh malts and then those notes are cut by firm spicy and floral hops. It ends dry with the help of increasingly bitter hops into the finish. Damn fine crisp fresh summer brew.
