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.

I like cream ales in general...great round mouthfeel and satisfying going down. Fruitiness reminds me of farmhouse type ales. This one is decent but not remarkable.

This beer is cloudy from the yeast...don’t expect a bottle to look the same as tap. In fact, I have had some pints from a tap that resembled flan--in looks only.
Good beer, a little sweet.

This sour yeasty beer has got to be the most popular microbeer in WI. Everyone asks for it but to me I’de rather drink something a little darker like the fat squirell by NG. Spotted Cow is a good one though don’t get me wrong!

On tap at the Hotel Trempleau. Pale gold with a HUGE white head. Creamy and sweet. This is now my all time favorite cream ale. Archetype of the style. A delicious beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a decent enough drink, good for a hot Summer day, but nothing spectacular. It’s a cloudy, straw-colored drink with a very short-lived head. The aroma is malt with tart oranges. Medium bodied and carbonationally challenged, it has a light malt flavor with a bit of citric tartness. Oddly, I don’t really detect their admitted addition of corn. I’d drink it again, but not if there were other choices.
