Semi cloudy orangish yellow with a thin ff-white head. Smell is sugary sweet and honey and flowers. Flavor is sweet and juice like. High carbonation. It just reminds me of a carbonated juice. Not bad, just not really my thing.

12 oz can poured. Clear golden pour with a thin patchy head. Sweet candy fruit aroma. Flavor is very nice. Light beer, but a big melon flavor and a cool finish. Extremely flavorful cream ale, which is nice to see. Bonus points for sure. Very refreshing. I dig this.

More bready than creamy. Decent crisp body and an ok example of the style, but ultimately passable.

Decent body but fruit like aroma and tart, almost rancid flavor. Just awful.

1" head drops leaving spotty lace above a clear straw gold brew.
Aroma is very bready. Smells like a loaf of sweet bread right before it goes in the oven... clean and pronounced corn/fruitiness at the same time.. all the smells are very separate... light spiciness throughout.
Flavor is pale malts and white bread... again there is a touch of hop spiciness.. some yeasty fruitiness that is different than most beers.. almost like it is accentuated... light body that tastes thicker...and prickly carbonation... Reminds me very much of a lighter "Rogue Dad’s Little Helper Malt Liquor".. sorta corny mid palate.
Not my cup of tea.. but I am sure that if there is such a thing as a Micro "Cream Ale" this has to be pretty good for the style... Probably would be very refreshing in the summer heat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copied from my BA review.
Can dated by the store on 09.11.14.
Poured into a beer can glass on 09.12.14.
A: 2 1/2 finger head. Straw yellow. See through.
S: Smells somewhat similar to a hef. Bubblegum. Maybe because of German pils malts as listed on the can?
T: Bubblegum, corn, and grain. Some grape too.
M: Creamy. Good carbonation.
O: Cream ales are not my favorite, but this one is good for the style. It’s a simple beer so it would be a good substitute for some macro lager drinking friends.
