3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Yogiís 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

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. Couldnít quite tell the difference between this beer and a BMC. Very disappointing.

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. Itís not mind blowing but cream ales usually arenít. It is however, a very decent and drinkable beer.

Tallboy can in the Indy Airport. Crisp pale golden pour with a beautiful frothy white head. Nose is sunshiny malt with plain grass and no hops. Taste is malt-forward but only slightly. Crisp and dry with some bread toward the end and very light fruity notes around the edges. Touch of grain but offset bu the golden sunshine. Medium-full body, clean and super refreshing after my flight [def have to watch out for bias here] and great promise from the brewers of one of the best cream ales Iíve head!
