3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a brighter yellow of partial cloudyness, thin, loose, white crown that faded fast and leaves minimal whispy spots of lace.
Smell is light, clean, and soft malts of sweetness, with a dulling floralness of hops dotted through each wiff. Taste is clean and creamy sweetness of softly done malts, kinda frothy grainyness, like intensely whipped cream malts or something, quite a appetizing feel, but it doesn't last I'm afraid, but the creamyness stays til the end where it cleans up with a touch of floral hops and goes dry; nice and easy, clean and creamy little drinker.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is lemon tart and mildly sweet. Taste is mild -- some corn sweetness, some lemon tartness, hint of peach and finishing with a light herbal bitterness. Light/medium body, nice summery beer.

Not bad at all. Slides down your throat like so much milk after a waffle binge. Very pleasant. I love cloudy beers.

This is a simple, easy drinking beer. Not much aroma, and a slightly sweet taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smooth drinking. A slightly sweet aroma. Some hoppy bitterness. Not bad for an easy to drink beer, the brew is kind of bland so if you want to drink a lot of it, it's ok because your palate won't get saturated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice head that dissipated quickly.Nice fruity aroma,a little bit of everything apple,pear possibly some citrus.and there might be that hint of corn but for my untrained nose it hard to say if it's there.the flavor was much the same as above but more of a sweet/sour taste with a mild hoppiness to it as well.This is a hard brew to describe.what you think your going to get via the aroma and the look of the brew are not the same as the flavor.still it's not a bad brew just different.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[draught] This beer is a hearty helping of boring, with a great big side of ho-hum. It doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. Is it a lager? A pilsner? A witbier? I can't tell, but it certainly isn't creamy either. There is a hint of lemon and a mild sweetness, but I could get the same flavor by adding a lightly sugared lemon wedge to a glass of water. As far as this beers relation to cows goes, I would be more inclined to associated it with an excretion that can't be made into cream.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very light colored, light bodied beer with a mild flavor of honey. This reminded me a little like Magic Hat Hocus Pocus. Pale yellow body, rich head - I had this beer on tap. This is totally a summer beer, but I don't think I'd call it a cream ale, as it wasn't really creamy at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Bottled. This is described on the label as a "Wisconsin farmhouse ale," and indeed it seems more like a French than a cream ale. Nice looking head dissipates quickly, leaving a hazy, strawlike body. I get nice effervescence and a grapefruitty, almost sour taste. They get some props for not only admitting to using corn, but giving a reason. Corn seems to be the source of the sweetness more than the malt. Hop finish is there, but not distracting. A very pleasant experience.

Cloudy yellow with very little head. Apple, pear, spices, hops; and yes, corn can be detected in the light aroma. The taste surprised me with it's complex nature. Sweet and sour fruit, and just the right amount of hops balanced the yeast, made this enjoyable. But classified as a cream ale? A hefecorn?
