2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, light golden color with a small, disappearing head of snow white fizz. A thin, soapy wash leaves almost no lacing behind. The nose is an odd one, showing a strong vegetal overtone, hinting at pea soup and boiled beats. Underlying notes of sweet corn flakes and white bread toast provide the malty backdrop. There is a certain creaminess to it, but it can’t hide the general vegetable nature. Likewise, the flavor is a disappointment, showing more dirty vegetable notes, including celery and peas, with notes of sweet creamed corn and aging cereal grain. There’s even a hint of tartness on the back end, which certainly shouldn’t be there. On the palate, soft carbonation make the body feel overly sugary and stagnant. This brew just isn’t good at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle served in an English pint. Clear pale yellow with a short white head. Minimal retention and lace. Aroma of wheat and light malt. Medium-light body with a creamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation and a crisp, yet bready finish. Would make a nice session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle pours murky yellow into a lager glass with medium head. Slightly sour aroma with some yeast, grains, lemon peel. Tastes like it smells unfortunately: lemongrass and sourdough bread... not the most pleasing but not terrible. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, creamy, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Indeed, dry and crisp.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 From a 12 oz bottle from a six pack purchased in McCall, idaho this poured a hazy lemon yellow with a foamy head head that diminished quickly and left light lacing. The aroma is citrus, floral, and grassy hops. . Light body and nice smooth mouthfeel. The flavor has a slight sourness and the finish is dry and bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with little head, lacing is standard. Nothing special about the aroma, the flavor is hard to pinpoint, some ginger, but i am unimpressed with this beer, It should be creamy. It just isn’t that good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: My first good cream ale. Very crisp and refreshing, yet flavorful. Way more citrus than I would have expected.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light yellow with an average, almost white head that slowly diminished and kept a thin sheet and left good lacing. The aroma was light yeast, lemon citrus mostly, some fruit and some flowers. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, acidic and slightly sour; while the finish was acidic, ever so slightly bitter and slightly sour with a short to average duration. There was lemon citrus mostly, lost of fruit, some floral notes and a little yeast, too. The light to medium body was sort of creamy and dry with fizzy carbonation and a chalky, dry and light to moderately astringent finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw body with a white head. Nice fruity esters, hints of citrus, lemon, light passion fruit and mildly tart. Almost slightly infected but in a good way. Sweet and drying. Nice brew.
