2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Part of the sampler at the brewery in Garden grove. Never have been a fan of blondes. Too much of a corn/grain flavor. Not bad, just not my style.

Not much aroma. Very light and tasty beer. What I like best about it is the hop bitterness in the aftertaste

Tap. Light gold pour. Did not get too much from the aroma. Taste is light cereal malt and a slight bitterness. Nice smooth body and lower carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed as part of a sampler at Oggi’s in Garden Grove, CA. Appearance a bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma is different, yeast, not much malt, and cream corn. Taste is exactly like cream corn, buttery and light. I actually like cream corn, not so much in beer form though.

Draft at Apple Valley. Served a clear, pale gold with minimal head. Very little is happening with this brew. Some bread, straw, light floral hops. Slightly sweet, very light body. Pretty forgettable, not sure why they call it a cream ale.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a fizzy white head and minimal retention.
S: Starts off innocently enough with some pale malts and a nice sweetness. A hint of floral hops and a sweet fruitiness to the beer. Then, there comes a strongly vegetal aroma that just ruins the beer. It’s almost like broccoli.
T: The vegetable character is there from the start. Bit time grass and vegetable juice flavors. A mild bitterness, green apple, straw, and some moderate malt/grain sweetness.
M: Light in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: I would pass on this should we cross paths again.
