12 ounce bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Thanks! Pours a pale yellow color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of corn, caramel and light grassy and fruity notes. The taste is significantly dryer with corn, grainy notes and a grassy finish. Some toast as well. Nice level of sweetness. Well balanced. Medium bodied. Very nice cream ale.

Pours a hazy amber with a huge white head that sticks around. Smells of fruit, some light malt, grassy. Tastes spicy with lightly dry malt and some nice hints of perfumy hops. Great, full bodied finish with some spicy hints and peppery splashes. Excellent!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bright yellow beer, with a monsterous thick pure white head.
Sort of eggy,peanut shell aroma to it. I find this typical of Cream Ales.
Flavour is sweet, honeyish, corn, candy sugar..with a slight bitter end.
Nice enough on the palate a touch silky but easy going down.
Overall a nice light beer.

bottle thanks to ditmier. First beer from laughing dog brewing company. poured about 1/4 of the bottle into a mug and got about a 4.5 inch head. Looks like frothy soap bubbles. This whole encounter slowed me down a bit, but i took a swig or two from the bottle while i waited. Also had a few bites of my onion, mushroom, spinach, feta, egg scramble. Aroma is grass, corn, some pales malts, and a dash of skunkiness. I might be making this sound bad, but it was actually an interesting and enjoyable beer to drink. I was in the mood for a cream ale for some reason and this one hit the spot. This beer was definitely overcarbonated. Even when i pour the beer ever so gingerly i still get a big assed head. I guess this is the 4th best cream ale according to ratebeer. I haven’t had many cream ales so I’ll have to keep exploring. Thanks again eric for the bottle.

Thanks to Eric for the bottle! Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was sweet with corn and pale malts supporting grassy and grainy hops.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor had honey, pale malts, and some creamed corn with dry grainy bitterness around.. sweeter on the finish with nothing memorable, but it was aiight. Lighter-bodied and grainier than it was creamy on the palate.. OK flow and balance.. entirely serviceable.

Hazed amber color with moderate off-white head. Aromas of creamed peas. Big DMS problem detected. Unfortunately the creamed peas and vegetables carry into the flavors. I found this unworthy of my time on vacation and found the lightly sour beverage rinsing out my sisters kitchen sink drain.
