Not a great beer. Kind of boring and lacking in flavor. Drinkable but nothing special.

Somewhat doggy aroma at first, then just fades off to being cereal. Misty blonde, lackluster label. Mild lemony notes, tangy, nothing else. Medium-light body. ABC Liquors, Betton.

seymour (1558) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Poured from 12oz brown bottle (I love the ski lift artwork) into tulip glass, it poured a crystal clear golden colour with sudsy white foam which dissipated fast. Fairly strong DMS or corn aroma. Mushy grainy flavour and mouthfeel, dry finish but no descript hoppiness. I know we’re not supposed to expect much from an American Cream Ale, but this isn’t even a good one, and there are actually some I love. I really wanted to like this more than I did. Magic Hat makes other fantastic beers, but this one was a missed opportunity. I’ll say my favourite aspect of this beer was the oh-so-subtle woodsy/spicy Ringwood yeastiness that snuck into the aftertaste.

Bottle from Magic Hat’s spring variety pack. Pour is clear golden with a bubbly, short-lived head. Not much in the way of aroma. Taste is smooth, almost generic "beer" flavor, with a hint of bitterness in the finish; not a hoppy bitterness though. Thin mouthfeel. Overall, it’s a fairly refreshing little ale, and I wouldn’t mind it much if it were cheaper and easy to find. As it is, my money is better spent on other brews.

libertine (261) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
pours a very light hazy golden yellow. Aroma is dank with lemongrass and malt. Flavor has that note of corn in it that is disagreeable. I really have nothing positive to say so I will end it there. Dont buy this.

RichardGretton (4365) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, and the flavour is yeasty with some sourness and plain bitterness. Overall a very average golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GranvilleTim (1759) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2015
pale golden pour with a disappearing white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is a malt base with light fruit in the finish. Little dry mouth feel. OK beer, no lacing.
