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.

Pours dark yellowish gold. Nose is light wheat and honey. Hints of vanilla in there and some malt. Taste is great! Very sweet which might put people off. A lot of malt and honey. Sweet but with a nice hoppy signature. Body is probably the best part. Very creamy and effervescent without being thick and undrinkable. A great beer!

Bottle. Golden color with dense medium head. Creamy vanilla aroma with slight hops that all but disappears when the head dies. Taste vanilla, some sour, a little funk and wood.

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with good, foamy white head, good lacing / Sweet, candied, Jolly Rancher nose / Medium body, fat and creamy, smooth, good hop balance with some astringency on the bitter finish / Simple flavors of sweet corn, straw, hint of Jolly Rancher / A pleasant enough drink, if simple and somewhat awkward.

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!

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.
