4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Madison Co-op in Seattle. Nose has mild berry hop aromas, light graininess. Flavor has pronounced peach hop flavor, substantial textured barley flavors - good malt profile for a pale beer - very nice lingering dry bitterness in the finish. Palate is light and bubbly. I believe I could drink a keg of this in a sitting and enjoy every drop.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours blond with three fingers of fluffy white head. Smell is light fruity, sugary almost. Taste is a bit tart, almost a bit of the lager taste, hard to put my finger on it. Very carbonated and thin body. Good for the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are clean, bready, grassy with mild DMS. Flavors are sweet, floral, bready, corn bread with a hoppy and slightly fruity finish. Really good for the style (one of my favorites). Lively bubbles, light and dry.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Flasche) Es hat ein helles, klares, fast Zitronengelb mit einer weißen, feinen Schaum. Das Aroma ist stark citrusartig und leicht lipulinig. Geschmacklich ist es kaum bitter, außer ganz leicht im Abgang. Er ist schlank und etwas langweilig aber retronasal ist das Hopfenaroma gut schmeckbar. Im Ganzen etwas langweilig aber sehr süffig.

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.
