1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear golden coloured body with a light copper glow and a very thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of grass, malt, alcohol and metal - not too pleasant. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic and malt notes at first with a large presence of alcohol and bitterness with not much else going for it. Aftertaste is obtuse and not complementary to the style or favourable tastes. Overall, a fairly bad offering with a lot of metal and assertive alcohol flavours noticeable, but only some malt to help it out. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes (Fairfax), Virginia on 02-August-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-September-2015.

Small, white head thats short lived, spotty lacing. Clear, pale gold color. Grainy , malt nose, decent. Light bodied with a lightly prickly carbonation, slightly coating. Tastes of grain, bready malts and slight grassy notes. Dry finish, no bite. Still a decent quaffer though. One of their better beers. Bottle from statelineliquors.

A few extra points added for trying a cream ale. Maybe more enjoyable at the Yard in the heat of summer. For now, a way too mellow cream. Gently hopped is correct, maybe it needs to be a bit rougher.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours golden, one inch quick white head, no lacing or retention. Aroma of bread but very light. Taste is mostly sweet grains with just a touch of hop bitterness. Light bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes sweet with notes of bread, wheat and earthy hops. Just average.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors purchased solely because it’s a cream ale. It pours a very light gold with a short lived white head. Slightly doughy and bready nose. A touch of corn bread, a little butter, and a slight sweetness. There is a light metallic bitterness on the back end. Very light body with a clean finish. A true mass produced pale lager competitor.
