Hazy golden in color with scant head, aroma of mild malt, tastes also quite malt and not as much lactose presence as expected, finished smooth and with a bitter end-note.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from a 12 brown bottle, cool graphic design, into a pint glass. It poured a clear amber colour with weak white foam. Faint aromas of grainy malts and noble-ish hops. Flavour was bigger though: rich combo of caramel malt and light residual sweetness of lactose sugar. No noticeable taste of hops nor ale yeast. Medium body, full creamy mouthfeel, sweet aftertaste. As the brewer’s description indicates, this is definitely a beer style which would benefit from a proper pub draft pour, but it’s still pretty good in the bottle too. It’s not spectacular; but an authentic cream ale (creamy from actual milk sugar, as opposed to flaked corn) is rare and unique over here.

Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza.12oz bottle poured into a 12oz Corsendonk glass. Not a fresh bottle but was in a store fridge the whole time.
Generally a dust slight old mealtimes. Low on hops. No flaws and no flare. Boring.

The color of this beer is an ever-so-slightly hazy orange with almost no head whatsoever, and what is there dissipates very quickly; furthermore, the aroma is quite malty with no complexities at all. The taste is overwhelmingly sour with not much else to the flavor, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a finish that only intensifies (read: worsens) the already not-so-pleasant flavor.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal, skunky, malty aromas. Straw, cereal flavors. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange with little head and some lacing. Simple aroma of grainy malt and some fruity esters. Malt taste up front with some sweet light fruit but not much else. Moderate mouthfeel with dry finish. Better than a commercial beer but still not very complex. Flavor was unremarkable but simple and easy drinking. Bought in six pack of Weston Brewing beers from Smooth Endings. Drank at home 9/16/12.

Tried this first on tap in Warrensburg, MO and later at the brewery and bottled and I’ve never been impressed. Has the creamy mouthfeel of the style. A light, buttery hop flavor but there isn’t much flavor to speak of aside from that.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I rather enjoyed this beer, despite the mediocre reviews it generally gets. It’s about as good as a beer can be without being at all challenging or deep, but neither is it entirely without character.
It’s an easy-drinking beer (no, not in a macro-brew sort of "easy drinking"), with flavor that works great on a hot day. It’s not heavy, it’s not bitter, it’s not chewy, you don’t have to think at all as you drink it -- you just enjoy it.
A: A nice blonde with slight head and little short-lived lacing. It’s a pleasant color, just deep enough to know you’re drinking something with ingredients in it.
S: Sweet with a touch of breadiness. A little hop. I want to say there’s some citrus which helps give it a slightly sour smell, but it’s barely on the edge.
T: See above.
M: Not bad. Enjoyable. But kind of watery. Despite all my description of how it’s enjoyable unchallenging, and that’s a good thing (in the proper circumstances), I personally like more chewy beers. But, the mouthfeel for this one matched its taste.

On tap at the brewery. Comes light gold with a small off-white head. Aroma of grain, malt, and butter. Taste is malt, grains, butter, and some citrus. Easy to drink. Not much else going on for it.
