COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Weak aroma and flavor of caramel, citrus and cheap, metallic hops with a dry finish. The body is light with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light yellow colored body and a fair lacing. . The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and grassy. Not one that I would buy again.

Received this bottle from a vacationing beer buddy. Iíve traveled to Frankenmuth many times but was unaware that there was a brewery there. This cream ale poured pale golden yellow with an average white head. No detectable aroma other than faint stale hops. Flavor was tame in and a tad skunky with only slight traces of carbonation. Malt & brewers yeast were the dominant ingredients that I tasted. Mouthfeel was strickly watery and similar to a light pale ale. The aftertaste was brief and quickly forgotten. Not bad, but not great either.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Pours a very nice yellow color with massive amounts of bubbles that lifted from the bottom of the glass and seemed to last forever. Really a very good tasting beer with very little or no after taste.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: Hazy yellow color with a compact bone-white head and spotty lacing. Floral aroma of hops and malt. Light and creamy body with a mild but flavorful hops character, along with a touch of malt. The finish is sweet and lingering. This style is not normally my cup of tea but I found this beer to be simple yet refreshing and tasty.

Draft at Frankenmuth Brewery. Small white smooth head that mostly diminished, decent amount of lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Nose lightly malty and lightly hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty and vanila. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body.

Hmm... nothing too overwhelmingly memorable about this one. It does have some nice bite, but Iím not a huge fan of the style. I guess it is a good beer, better than a pale lager, but not worth seeking out for me.

BigNasty (55) - South Lyon, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Tasted as part of sampler and from mixed 6-pack purchased at on-site store. Not much in the way of aroma (may have been my seasonal allergies), but beautiful color and head. Great tasting beer, with somewhat assertive malt and interesting creamy citrus/vanilla/honey notes. Would keep this in my fridge at all times if I didnít have to drive an hour to get it.

Lightly hazy yellow with white head. Some malt in the nose. Taste like every other cream ale, kinda watery with a slight vanilla touch. Refreshing.

Part of a sampler at the brewery. This was my last choice for the sampler and my favorite beer, go figure. A hazy yellow straw color in the glass with a solid white head. A mild aroma of malt and floral hops. The flavor is of sweet malt and is creamy indeed, like honey with vanilla. It has a good body and carbonation lingers a little. This is a really tasty and well made beer, and probably underappreciated by the beer rating community due to its style.
