3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ROBORB in trade. Thanks man. Pours golden with a short lived white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smell is light grassy hops and subtle sweet malt. Taste is smooth and creamy with a balanced light sweetness with just a twinge of hop bitterness to balance. Overally, very creamy mouthfeel for a lighter feeling beer and soft to medium carbonation. Very drinkable and non offensive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Damn if I really know much about this style, but this was pretty good. Certainly very light and not amazingly flavorful, but this seems meant to be an easy-drinking summer beer, and I could see myself drinking many of these. My pour was draft at Brewgrass. Clear gold with white head. Very mild. Some corn/grain. Minor hop presence. Not an overly crisp finish, but pleasant. Solid.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle thanks to Book m Dano. Lightly hazy onion skin colored pour with a light head. Musty aroma that is kind of like fresh top soil. The flavor is grain. Just smooth grain like flavors with a touch of earth. Drinkable for sure, just not particularly interesting. Fairly smooth medium body.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bruisin’. Moderately hazy, fairly thin golden color with a foamy white head. Mild grainy flavor and nose, a little corn and malt, almost no hops. Easy drinkin’. Would work as a gateway for new craft beer drinkers or as a summer refresher, but not much more.

Bomber pours a mostly clear pale yellow body with small white head. Faint aroma has a hint of pears. Lots of corn syrup sweetness with some earthy hop bitterness. Slight metallic note. Forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a clear gold with fluffy white head. light crisp sweet aroma, smooth palate with dry finish, refreshing qualities of the cream ale, sweet millde and creamy background. light and sessionable, but a good quality palate, It is a ceam ale so complexity is light, but a good cream ale it is. the beer is good for its style.
