3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery shop.
Pours a medium golden color with a huge creamy bubbly bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of floral and earthy hops with a fair amount of bready pilsner maltiness and a light touch of fruit and corn. The flavor is clean bready with a touch of honey and corn on the malt side with a solid shot of earthy hop flavor. Light hop bitterness is present but doesn’t let this on skew from the malty side. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugar watery mouthfeel. Solid cream ale, I really enjoyed this!

Draft, served in a pint. Clear yellow, steady layer of foam with great retention. Easy sweet malt, grain and a moderate hop in the finish to help balance it. The hops play well with the grain. Texture / mouthfeel follow this style. Simple beer in a simple style. The Brew master; does a wonderful job making a simple, light style desirable.
