3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap at Cobblestone’s - served in a 6oz sampler glass.
The ale is lightly toasted golden with a thick 2 finger frothy head. The smell is your basic non-descript golden ale aroma, not really hoppy or malty somewhere in the middle with mild yeast aroma. The feel is good with nice body and slight hop bitterness alongside some mild malt nutty textures.
The flavor is pretty decent with a mild yeast flavor which is slightly fruity and a somewhat sweet but still balanced malt body. The hops are not dull, they seem to come in later in the taste to add some nice spiced and the beer lives up to the name as it fits the cream ale style well. Overall I think this is another good offering from Lancaster brewing, doesn’t really stand out from the pack, but it is well brewed and I enjoyed trying it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, Harrisburg. Pours a clear pale yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is light as expected, just a touch of bready malt, and some light corn possibly. The flavor is equally light, some soft maltiness with a slightly fruity finish, no appreciable hops. Light bodied and fairly easy drinking. Not a bad clone of Genny Cream Ale. Too bad that doesn’t add up to much.

Draft @ Capones (Aug): Poured a clear golden with a nice head. The aroma was that of a beer. The flavor was hardly there as well, but the aftertaste was def creamy. Overall, not the best but not the worst.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at Capones. Okay no long write up for this one, it sucked. Poured a clear golden yellow with a creamy white head that completely dissipated. The aroma and flavor were so faint that they were hardly detectable. Unoffensive beer but just blah......
