Not hugely crazy about this brew. Had some on tap at the Magic Hat brewery. Poured a pale yellow with a light head. Nose of weak malts and, yes, slight spice. Flavor echoes the nose. Finished a little earthy, skunky. Not bad but I’ve had much better cream ales (Genesee, Utica Club).

Clear apple juice body topped by minimal head. Aroma is sweet, peach, bready. Taste is minimal at first, but quickly develops into peach and bread, before giving way to a finish of moderate herbal bitterness tinged lightly floral. Light-medium body, with slight acidity. Enjoyable beer.
