3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. This is pretty much beer at its simplest, and this is the strength of this beer. Clear yellow pour... not much to look at really. Thinnish white head. Nose show sweet corn, super mild grassy hops, some grain. Tastes similar. Usually anytime I use "corn" in a description of a beer, it’s a bad sign. In this case, it works out just fine. This is no stunner, but it’s great in its simplicity, especially on a hot summer day.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a translucent clean yellow with a one finger frothy white head. Nose is vegetal and grassy, corn, some hay, mildly sweet, strange aroma. Flavor shows corn and hay, vegetal, not digging it. Palate is soft with a low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The last beer I tried of the just released fullsteam lineup. Never been a big fan, or maybe I just don’t "get" cream ales. I think I’d rather just have the Carolina roasted corn grits separate from my beer. This tasted like a sweeter pale lager and was very difficult to drink. Sweet corn, sugar, bleh. I don’t much care for this one.
