COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true American style. This smooth delicately hopped ale uses a percentage of corn to give it it's golden color and clean distinct taste.

Tap at SG, labelled only as ’Cream Ale’ but the abv was the same (4.5% / 1.047 OG). Pale golden with a clingy white head. Beautiful grainy-bready nose and taste, lightly sweet and juicy in-mouth, really makes you appreciate the beauty and simple pleasure of the subtle interplay between malt and fresh hops. Medium body and super moreish, light fruit in the background. Take Genny as your starting point and imagine much higher quality, cleanliness.

Draft at the source. Deep golden color. Aroma of sweet hay. Taste is bitter hay, straw, grass. Nice.

I never thought I would rave about a cream ale, but this one was wonderful, with banana and lavender aromas and a great, rich mouthfeel.

This poured a blonde color with a white head. Aroma was of grass, lactose, and pale malt. Flavor similar, pretty standard cream ale, but better than genny.

I think I got a flat growler of this. Can definitely taste the corn adjunct but this is part of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
