Pours golden out of a 16 oz can, a superior package. Nice aroma of sweet malt, corn and some grassiness. Flavor is sweet and biscuity with a nice dry finish. A nice, sessionable brew.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma- Has a nice clean malty aroma with soft malt character and very minimal hops in the nose, very nice .
Appearance- This beer is brilliantly clear with a great foam stand which is long lasting.
Taste- Great example of the Cream Ale style. Has a nice malt character with a faint bitterness that is just enough to balance the flavors. Has a nice corn characteristic that intermingles with the soft malt character. No diacytal, DMS, or any other noticeable flaws.
Palate- This beer is easy drinkin, with a great creamy character that intermingles with medium high carbonation. It goes down very easy.
Overall- Great example of style, extremely well balanced and clean. Brewed for the masses in Indianapolis to help convert Bud/Miller/Coors drinkers to craft beer. Excellent job guys!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Yogi’s in Bloomington IN. Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of ale esters and sweet cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation and a refreshing mouthfeel. Very pale malt backbone in which I can pick up the wheat malt. Just enough hops to bring some balance, but not with any discernable flavor traits. Sweet with not being over the top. A good example of the style- which is not supposed to be overly complex. A good lawnmower session

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
well another cream ale that is pretty damn boring. Light gold, white head. Very light on the malt and hops, I detect a light butter note. Flavor is smooth, lightly crisp, some faint bittering hops, honey/malty notes. Passable on a hot day.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at Brewery. Appearance is clear, pale yellowish with very little head. Aroma is weak consisting mainly of what and some malty sugar. Taste is very uninspiring and weak - wheat and barley malts with some faint grassy notes. Palate is very watery, flat, and thin. Couldn’t quite tell the difference between this beer and a BMC. Very disappointing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz. can. Pours a pale straw yellow with a decent sized fizzy head that dissipates quick. Sweet malt aroma and cereal grains. Flavor is light malt and a slight grassy hop background. Light bodied and creamy on the palate with a mild grainy finish. It’s not mind blowing but cream ales usually aren’t. It is however, a very decent and drinkable beer.
