"Yum" - That phrase sums up nearly every taste test we do when we trot out our super smooth cream ale.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Twelve ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a golden color with a medium head, average head retention and poor lacing. Slightly sweet malty aroma with slight corn and bitter hop notes. The taste is fairly bitter leafy hops with some metallic notes and sweet malts that develop into more of a corny note as the beer warms, leading to a flavor profile very similar to cream soda. Thin to medium bodied.
