2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
As pretty a beer as I might’ve ever seen. Golden yellow, thick foamy white head after the anti-bubbles a la Guiness. But that’s the best part. Aroma is nothing really at all. Flavor is nitrogen and banana/lemon/yeast/foam.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy yellow-gold color with a thin creamy white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, bready malt and fruit. The finish is creamy and mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Average overall.

I’ve never had a nitrogen infused beer which was this light. Smooth and refreshing with a creamy head. A nice touch with the nitrogen as it lends a very creamy texture to the beer and makes it just that much more tasty.

Straw pour, big creamy head.
Aroma of grass and soap.
Flavor is hoppy sweet. Initially overwhelmingly sweet but not so bad after a bit.
Dry fresh mouthfeel.

A: Golden Straw/Light Amber hue, Think Creamy Off White Head, Great Lacing
S: Bready, Earthy, mild Malty
T: Bread, Malty, mild Hops
M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, mildly Dry
Overall, a decent Cream Ale done justice by the nitro tap, decently blended

Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours clear golden with stable white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Ditto taste, with a slightly estery touch. Mild finish. Very low carbonation. Acceptable but I have tried a better Cream Ale before.

Draft at draught 55. Light nose of hops and while being almost flavorless if you really search you can find grass and caramel. Very creamy palate so no lie there but very watery and bland as can be. Not offensive at least.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:
Nice creamy loooonglasting head. Aroma is slightly roasted, cereal, grain, popcorn, hay, caramel, dough. Taste is slightly dry, light malts, hay, cereal, caramel, grain, grass. Medium bitterness. Fair enough.

Oof. Grainy, little carbonation, flavor of arm pits and a crotch. Not the good kind of crotch I might add.

Tap at whole foods, very flat tasteless cream ale, Taste was grainy without any flavor. Ugh !
