22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light puddled film and medium collar and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of a lightly sweet grain malt, floral hops and a doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a mild fruity ester. The taste was rather malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a pronounced grainy feel from the start, becoming lightly hoppy with a slight adjunct presence and a light fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow and had a light spicy sweetness at the very end. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a good refreshing brew with an unpretentious taste and a great drinkability...

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.

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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours golden with minimal head and pour head retention. The aroma is a sweet maltiness, soft floral hopping note. The flavor is grainy, malty, light floral and fruity notes. This is a solid cream ale. Delicate. Nice.

I avoided buying this beer for years because I thought it would taste like an orange creamsicle beer. It must have been the name and the orange label.

09.29.14 best by. Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 07.16.14. A: Sweet flower. Maybe citrus too. Nice. A: Completely see through straw yellow. The head recedes quickly to a ring. T: Flower with a malt backbone dominate. Grass is subtle. P: Creamy. O: It had a nice floral flavor and was very well balanced. It was very good for a cream ale. It was just a very laid-back and subtle beer.
