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.

Draft. Clear yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of straw, light lemon. Taste is s bit too lager like for me.

Pours a clear gold with a creamy medium white head...decent lacing and lively. Aroma has mild grassiness. Flavor follows suit and adds just a touch of hoppy spice. Mouthfeel is full and creamy and the finish is dry and slightly bitter/grassy...very quaffable.

From the keg at the 2012 Selinsgrove Beer and Wine Festival
Poured a hazy dark straw with minimal off-white head. Nose was malt, mild hops and citrus. Not much nose. Bland flavor with notes of pale malt, hops, and some earthy notes.
Below this brewery’s standards.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very mediocre beer. Pours golden from tap with a thin white head. Aroma? No. Slightly creamy mouthfeel but otherwise nothing remarkable about the drinkin’. Finishes clean. The best thing you can say about this one, which many have said before, is that it’s inoffensive.
