3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Hayduke who I am sharing with via Facebook chat. A big bubbly almost white head that has good retention. Body is clear, golden, with active carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma is grass, grain, and fruit. Flavor is also grass, soft hops that are gentle fruit. Some light grain and a bit of earth. Everything here is understated, soft, and gentle. Finish had a bit of butter. A champagne aspect here. This would make a great session beer and is interesting and nicely understated. Well done.

Bottle... Poured pale, straw-golden with a bubbly, white head that dissipated quickly. Fruity, estery, grassy, herbal nose. Dry palate, slightly refreshing with mild hops, cracker-like malts, floral earthy tones and a short clean finish. Not much going here, just like most cream ales.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a medium frothy white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and bready malt. Light body with flavors of mild hops, sweet malt and fruit. Touches of corn as well. The finish is lightly hopped with a grainy malt aftertaste. Tasty Cream Ale overall.

10th October 2008. GABF. Clear gold beer. Lagerish but with a softer palate. This beer is all about the finish - sweet cream with a touch of hop. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery on 6/27/09. Exactly what was expected. Pours a cloudy pale gold, frothy white head. Hints of lavendar and honey. Not too complex with a slight dry finish. Good cream ale.

On tap at 2009 NABA in chilly Idaho Falls. I love this brewery! Pours a deep golden hue with a large white head. The aroma is full of light hops, butterscotch and corn. The flavor was excellent; a full mouthfeel of creamy goodness, butterscotch, light citrus hops, corn and sweet flavors. Very enjoyable.
