4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had in a flight on tap. There’s a small head and it looks gorgeously golden orange. A little hippy nose but that’s it. It tastes really creamy and is pretty great.

On tap at brewpub. Quite creamy. A bit full flavored for a cream ale but that’s not a bad thing. A bit bland but a really solid lighter ale.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of quickly diminishing
finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The aroma was mild with a slight malt hop note. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a slight astringency in the finish. The flavor was mostly malt hop with a crisp hoppy aftertaste. An OK beer for perhaps a session at the bar.

Clear golden with an fine white head. Light vegetal sweetness, honey. The slightest bitterness and spice. Light, clean body, medium length finish. Decent.

The Traktor pours a mostly clear dark orange yellow with a thin ivory head that does not last long. The aroma is lemon, citrus and wheat. The flavor is also lemon, citrus and wheat with an added hint of caramel. Overall this is decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. Notes of vanilla yogurt are the first thing I noticed on the nose with a light banana, lemon, and a decent amount of grains. It pours a hazy, murky orange with a soft whitish head. The head dissipates slowly, but eventually dwindles down to a thin ring with a wispy surface and it leaves behind an above average amount of thin web lace. It’s a well balanced medium / medium-light bitter and sweet - maybe slightly more sweet than bitter. The light bodied beer has an oily texture with a soft carbonation (maybe lightly fizzy). There’s notes of caramel, grass, and grapefruit at the finish with a light yogurt tartness to it. The tartness lingers along with grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. It’s dry and astringent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Dan’s. The pour is a surprisingly clear light amber color with a nice white head and some lace clinging all around the glass. The aroma is sweet; a nice light maltiness to it, combined with a good honey prominence and some small notes of vanilla. The flavor has a bit more vanilla to it, with the sweetness keeping a solid undertone. The mouth feel is definitely creamy, and the after taste is really sweet, which compliments the creaminess awesomely.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A couple of tall drafts at Finley’s in Kalamazoo (kudos to them for maintaining an extensive craft brew draft line up). Clear yellow brew with white head. Aroma of sweet grain, maybe honey and hints of mint. Taste is sweet at the start ending with a slight astringency and a bit of mint at the very end. Palate is great - creamy, actually, due to active small bubbled carbonation. Very tasty!
