2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz. bottle, fresh from WI. Very mild aroma, some light, grainy malts and even lighter citric fruitiness with a touch of yeast in the nose. Light-medium golden yellow color, hazy, vast majority of sediment left in the bottle, possessing a thin, white head. Flavor is malty, dry and bitter to start, sweetening up just a little throughout before the somewhat vegetative, tangy and watery finish. Thin and well-carbonated palate coupled with a light body. I wish I liked this more.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. nothing to write home about here. Hazy pale yellow in color with a very fast fading head. I suppose it would make for a decent lawnmower beer on a hot summer day.

Yeasty aroma. I didn’t like the sample at the brewery so I only got a 6 pack-should have bought a case. I like this...goes good with a Sunday afternoon football game.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a very pale, hazy golden with little wisps of off-white head. Very mellow aroma of malted wheat, light honey, and just a little corn. Smooth and clean on the palate, but really had nothing exciting to it. Flavor was not un-like the aroma. This came across as a creamy malt liquor, with more thought and money spent for ingredients, and less emphasis on the booze. I’m a big fan of most of their other offerings, though.

Mild grain and light alcohol in the aroma. Hazy yellow color. No head. Cool and refreshing with very little taste. Mild malty sweetness int he aftertaste. It is actually pretty dang thirst quenching though. It makes you take big gulping sips.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Overall, a nice looking beer. Golden straw color with nice carbonation. Light malty grain aroma, similar to a light lager. Medium slick body. Flavor is like a deeper tasting BMC product. Malty grain, corn, a bit of syrupiness. Nothing fancy but nothing off either.

Cream Ales are soooooooooooo boring. Like flat lager this doesn’t have any character at all. The flavor says "whatever", and rolls it’s eyes. I suppose if it’s late at night you could drink one. It will bore you to sleep.

Light malt aroma. Cloudy yellow pour. Sickly dry malt flavor. Tart finish. Why do people brew Cream Ales?

I tried a number of these over different weeks to test consistency. The beer moves from a flat, low body ale to a yeasty flavor over random bottles. I dinked the flavor rating because of this. Overall: A mid-grade beer, good for bulk drinking at cookouts. For the same price, you can get Bell’s Oberon which is a grade better.
