"Smooth body, and decent semi-sweet cream and earthy hop flavor. Aroma is hard to get out - you have to work for it. Nothing to complex or interesting in this one."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little citrus-y and very malty on the nose, with a substantial bread, toast, oatmeal contribution from lots of malt. Still, the beer is in balance, and there is a unique astringency from the hops that would leave one to believe there is more alcohol to this beer than there really is. Generous palate.

16oz can. Golden yellow color with a small white head. Raw dough and grassy aroma. Clean malty flavor with a hint of wheat and a creamy oat finish. Creamy texture with average carbonation. Nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. Smooth, well balanced and enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not much on the nose maybe some bread or light grains. Tastes nearly the same with some more grainy flavors. Maybe a tad of vanilla? Either way nothing special here.

16oz can courtesy of Trent!
It pours a straw yellow with a 2 finger head of foam.
I get floral hops and some caramel malt in the smell.
The malt in the taste is more of a grainy variety with the hops giving me a lemony kind of bitterness, not tartness, mind you. A bit of corn is noticeable but not a huge detraction.
Fairly light bodied, it does have a weak kind of watery finish.
Cream Ales are not a style that will turn heads but...this is a very good example of the style and it is certainly an easy drinking brew. I like.
