3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Aroma has some roasted notes from the malts but I can’t really detect any hoppy aroma. Pours a light golden/yellow with a thick white foam. Taste is crisp and a little bitter, very pleasant. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. For the style, it was pretty good; as someone else noted, though, it was pretty hoppy for a cream ale. Poured essentially a golden yellow and went down very smooth. Easy to drink.

Birra bella fresca per l’estate, gasata il giusto, luppolata senza eccessi, gradevolissima. Me ne faccio sempre una boccia da 1,5 litri al 4:20!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Frisco Taphouse, Columbia, MD on 06/12/11. Served in a goblet/Trappist glass. A clear pale gold colored body with a smallish off-white head. A subtly sweet aroma of cream, vanilla, caramel, a touch of corn, and hints of grass & citrus. Went down fairly thin and relatively creamy. Carbonation was a tad low. Somewhat refreshing. Semi-sweet upfront taste-wise. Creamy middle with some vanilla. Musty. Kinda crisp at the end with a touch of wheat and some citrus. Solid attempt at a lame style.
