COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with crystal clear water from Lake Michigan, but never watered down. Weíve searched around the world and have yet to find a beer quite like this. A brilliant straw-colored ale, with a crisp and clean body, subtle malty profile, and satisfying finish reminiscent of a honey-dipped biscuit.

chucklemation (534) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours a lemon yellow with a white foam head. Has an aroma of honey and bread/wheat. Flavor is subtle wheat and some lemon, with a light touch of bitterness. Not a whole lot of flavor, but this is a decent tasting light beer with a low abv (3.8% according to the can).

16 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with clean and balanced malt, yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, cracker, corn, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice clean, robust, and balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very good cream ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Sampled from a can, this ale had a pale straw yellow-gold pour with no to little haze until the latter part of the can is poured when more haze was noticed, and the pour made a small head of white bubbles that receded to a ring and some islands, it had aromas of light biscuit malt and bread, a little grain, light grass and spice hops, and a malt and sugar sweetness, it had flavors of some malt, bread and a touch of grain, light hops and very little sweetness, the finish was pretty dry with a faint bitterness, there was little to no sweetness, it had a little crispness to it, the mouth feel was light, this beer was easy to gulp, it had average carbonation, this beer had a light nose and flavor and not as sweet as I was expecting for a cream ale, it had little sweetness in the flavor which makes this drink a great beer for a hot day, a nice drink for working in the yard, a good drink.

shrubber85 (7862) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Can. Cream and barley malt aroma. Hazy medium yellow with large white head. Sweet creamy barley malt and mildly bitter grass/hay flavor. A very good cream ale.

Can: Slightly hazed lemon-yellow with a huge, lacy white head. Grain, lemon scent. Taste is light and sweet citrus....honeyed grains...Just a slight grassy bittering. Very tasty.

johnnyoski (444) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Can. Light yellow with a frothy, white head. Grassy, lemon zest aroma. This same ízestí is present in the finish but otherwise its just a balanced light beer. As others have pointed out the can says 3.8% so Iím not sure if the formula has recently changed. Drinkable and refreshing but not what I was expecting.

tectactoe (2173) - Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Tap: Bright yellow with hints of amber, mild chill haze throughout; mostly translucent & topped with a small layer of healthy, off-white foam. Aroma is mild as cream ales tend to be; notes of light grain, honey, cereal, biscuits, & lightly buttery yeast. Taste is quite smooth; follows the same relaxed notion of the aroma... Biscuit & bread-like malt with notes of grains, oat, cereal, & faintly sweet honey in the finish. A touch of metallic flavor in the aftertaste with crisp yeast & crackers. Certainly quaffable, a nice cream ale when all is said & done.
