Sampler from brewery. Cloudy straw color, smallish head. Grainy. Not "creamy" but very grainy with a mild citrus bite. Heavily carbonated, maybe a tad too much. Pretty good.

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!

a bit of a fruity aroma, a little estery. smooth malt flavor with some fruitiness. medium body, not much hop flavor or bitterness, but it builds towards the finish with a clean merging of the soft malt flavor with a good hop bit. fairly clear medium honey gold color. a bit of a tangy note. creamy texture/flavor as it warms.

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.

1st on my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Pours yellow with a ring head. Not much of a nose. Taste is sweet, light and really there ain’t much there. Nothing to write home about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought this bomber at the brewery. Poured to a light golden orange with thin off-white head that lasted awhile and left little lacing. Nose was a mild floral hop, and the mouthfeel of this medium bodied beer was a bit on the thin side. Flavor followed the mild floral hop theme and the finsih was medium short and unremarkable.
Not a bad session beer, but nothing great either.
