3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft... Clear amber/orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aromatic highlights are piney and floral hops. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with zippy carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced and faintly acidic. Finishes crisp and mostly clean. Best cream ale I’ve had in quite some time.

Hazy creme soda color, thin off white head. Nose is slight caramel, with
faint hops. Sweet on the tongue. Through the middle somewhat metallic & bitter. Dry and somewhat citrus finish. Not sure what to do with this one...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce can poured an amber color with a cap of off white head. Aroma has grains, wheat, and mild grassy hops. Mouth feel is light with average carbonation. Flavor has grains, odd hops,and a very strange flavor that I can not put my finger on. Very strange brew that lacks a lot of the mouth feel and creaminess I look for in a cream ale.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can poured into a pint glass. Immediately just a not-good beer. Sickly maltiness, a sort of grainy puddle of a beer, with an intolerable astringency that recalls chewing on a teabag steeped in body odor. To call this a "harmonious balance of sweet and bitter" is like throwing a cat at a harp and calling it a harmonious balance of fluffy and melodic. Sort of.

Color is amber and orange, I smell malt, caramel, hops, citrus and bread. I taste cream, sweet malt, bitter hops, citrus/fruits and light wheat. A whole lot is going on in this beer, complex. Damn good beer!
