2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slight grainy aroma, pours a pale light amber with minimal head. There’s not much going on here, a touch of overcarbonation adding a bit, a quick sweetness, then a grainy finish. I would not consider this a good representation of the cream ale style.

Bottle at home. Grassy, herbal, hay. Creamy palate, high carbonation. Crisp finish with a touch of sweetness. Refreshing.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
March 26, 2014. Bottle pours light yellow with nice foamy white head. A lot of carbonation but little clingy lacing. Aroma is malt, sweet grass, slightly lemony but not citrus. Taste is simple and unforgettable. Slightly sweet, grassy and some bready malts in finish. Light palate held together by high carbonation. Too plain.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My 4600th rating here. Bottle. Nose is grainy with a whiff of stale that passes quickly, light grass. Pours clear yellow golden with aggressive carbonation and a noisy off-white head. Crisp light-medium body, medium bitter in the absence of balancing antagonism, lightly but persistently metallic and grainy and a touch unclean; faint tartness swirling with bread, some alcohol and sticky lips. Comes off like Genny or Cobra, yup, definitely pushing a malt liquor vibe with less sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I guess the flavor in the finish does taste like a cream ale but it certainly doesn’t looked like one. Lagerish in appearance, very light beer. Okay.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is fruit bread, grass. The appearance is clear gold, white head. The flavor is fruit, grass. The finish is noble hob, spicy. Thin medium in body. Ok overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rated on 3-14-2014. This bottled beer pours a small smooth, creamy white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, very fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. This beer’s aroma is malty, bready, grassy, musty, grainy, and some fruitiness. The taste is sweet, grainy, malty, fruity, grassy, and has a short dry finish. The palate is smooth and this beer is light bodied. I did not like or enjoy the flavors of this beer as they just do not come together very well for my liking. I have rated better beers of this style and this is a beer I will not drink again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of frothy finely sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The semi-flat dry mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering herbal aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of cardboard mild hops and malt. Not one that I would likely buy again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear bright yellow with a fairly thick, though not persistent, white head. Aroma is malty, a teeny bit fruity, not strong. Malty flavor has a hint of fruit and says a brief hello to the palate. Texture is smooth and fizzy, but just average. OK, probably best with a meal or at a party.

Beautiful golden color. Pours well with nice white head. Perfect on a hot day. Probably the easiest magic hat to drink.
