23 july 2015, bottle. yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. nose is sweet rice malt and some floral notes. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Tastes odd. it has a definite lager component, slightly sweet, some grassy bitterness, with an odd metallic or other odd flavor. not a fan.

Not too shabby. Another boring beer from Pelican. Poor is mediocre, as is the appearance. A very tiny, white head that left no lacing. Golden blonde color that is pleasant to look at. Taste is decent. I kind of like it, but it doesn’t grab my attention. A fair representation of a cream ale. I’d recommend it to those who are unfamiliar with the style.

My wife really loves this beer, I like it very much myself. Since it is brewed on the coast and we love the coast this makes for a great combination. We have only tried it in a bottle so far. We need to head over to Pacific City and try it on tap!

The description tells of the appearance fairly well and there are floral and citrus characters to the aroma and flavour. Juicy lemon predominates the flavour with a nice tart finish. It is a refreshing devil. Likeable.

On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, faint hops, and dough. Flavor the same. Average to lighter texture. A boring beer, but nothing wrong with it.

Draught at Thai Smiles, Portland
Hazy blond color. Paper and bread aroma, dry and weak mouthfeel, papery malt flavor, relatively low bitterness. Not bad, just very boring.

Draft pour at the Tavern Hall. From notes. Pours a clear golden color with a lot of fizz. No head. Smooth, creamy flavor with a sweet fruity grain aroma. I seem to think most cream ales are much of the same, though this one was on the flavorful side, which is good. Overall, not bad.
