2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very clear orange-golden beer, metallic, with no head left but a white rim. Rainwater nose, garden herbs, moss. Rainwater, grains and pale malts - dull. Very watery body, if with a creamy texture. Oh well... then again, my sample was probably not in the best of condition.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild ale with almost a hint of a wheat beer. Most of the bite comes from the carbonation. Very easy drinking, but kind of boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Golden shower with a nice creamy, thick white head.
S: Dry grass/hay.
T: This really resembled a BMC pilsner or lager more than a Cream Ale. Not much flavor.
M: Thin and slightly dry.
O: I was expecting this to be a bit more like Boddington’s or one of the other cream ales I have had. I was hoping for much more as the other Pelican beers were pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear pale gold color with a small white head that leaves a lasting film and ring. Aroma of roasted marshmallow without the char (reminds me of the smell of when we used to put Peeps in the microwave as kids), grassy hops, sweet malts, and peppery spice. Flavor of sweet malts, straw, crackers, grass, dry grains, and spicy hops. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Decent cream ale, but as I’ve said before this isn’t my favorite style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: Light, creamy and smooth texture. Slight sweetness -- caramel, sweet bread and cola. Mild bitterness is mostly balancing. Faint herbs in the aroma. Pleasant, easy-drinking beer.

Bottle… Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011 … Pours golden with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma features honey malt with a pinch of white pepper. Medium to full-bodied and lightly oily with lively carbonation. Nicely balanced, malt-forward flavor. Adequate bitterness compliments without distraction. Crisp, modestly sweet finish.

Sample tray. Pale yellow. Faint scent but they are brewing today and there is an aroma of yeast throughout the bar. Nice light ale with hop finish. Very nice for a starter/into beer.
