3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can and served in no-nik glass: Hazy golden hue with small floaties, long lasting creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of biscuity and bready malts along with a dash of caramel, some peppery and herbal hop, light grapefruit ester. The taste is a smooth balance of pale malts and fruity hops, a touch tea-baggy with a quick finish. The mouth feel is smooth and easy, a bit metallic however. If the ABV was a tad lower this would be a very good session brew. Still could easily have a couple with no issues. Surprisingly good.

A very nice cream ale. Pretty mild, but such is this style and it sticks true to that.

16oz can 5/12/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-48° in Footed Pilsner-Pours a dark golden with a loose white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a bit more hops. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy. Was not expecting much but thats why we drink it.

Can. Sweet caramel malt, apricot, and pine/grapefruit hops aroma. Hazy amber, small off-white head, suspended sediment. Heavy metallic flavor, as well as some malt and light hops. Light to medium body. I had my hopes up with the aroma, but they were dashed by the heavy metallic flavor.

This is moderately hoppy with an above average looking pour. Somewhat malt and hoppy. But...........! It has an overly light mouth feel and a watery finish. It almost drinks like a hopped up light beer. Not bad but not real great either.

Growler from Duane Reade. Weak aroma. Nothing noticeable other than a trace of hops. Beautiful deep gold with lasting head. sweet initially, but very well balanced. hops match well, nothing overwhelming, neutral on the palate. (had some with sushi, and it paired well). I enjoy the sweetness and balance. i’ll definitely have this again.

On draft. Great looking golden beer. Not much on the nose. Some sweetness from the malt, not overly biscuity and a slight hop bite in the background. It’s a good session beer but feels a little subdued in the flavour department.
