OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2011
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.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2011
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.

Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2011
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.

smith4498 (3069) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2011
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.

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2011
On draft in the tasting room. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Nose is corn, grain, some grassy and some lemony citrus notes. Flavor is light an sweet with some crisp lemon and grass. Light in body with a nice amount of hops. Drinkable cream ale.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
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.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2011
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.

burg326 (3885) - Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2011
On draft at cigar city pours a pale yellow with a soapy white head. Crisp ale that has a hint of corn, a little sweetness that makes it drinkable.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Growler… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Clear golden beer with a small, quickly dissipating, white head. The aroma features pale grains, spicy Euro-hops and a hint of corn. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is grainy, but balanced with a rumor of butterscotch. Finishes crisp and mildly bitter. Very clean for the style. Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly!
