I did not like it. Clear yellow with thite head. Aroma is musty, soapy and skunky. Taste is corn based. Not something I will have again.

A pretty okay cream ale. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly sweet with a bready aroma. Picked this up at the Indy airport on my way back to Omaha in 2016.

Sampled at GABF 2015. I negleced to post this one and this is from my tasting notes from last year. In the tasting glass gold with a white head. Nose of light malts. Light body. Flavor is malty and there is just not much taste here. I notice this won a gold medal at the the festival. Not sure why?

can. meh - very simple, crisp little beer. Didn’t expect much - not bad by any means, but nothing spectacular

The smell of this beer leaves me perplexed. It has subtle notes of floral and dare I say it mud. A quick sniff of the can confirmed it wasn't the glass. This beer however makes up for it in flavor! Wonderful on the tongue and light going down.

Heavy malt aroma. Thin, watery, no head. Some vanilla flavor but otherwise boring.

At the brewery. Wheat and creamy with a hint of lemon. Just like the Little Kings of my youth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 BJCP Category: 1C Cream Ale
AROMA: Light sweet malt with a lemony character. Classic lager aroma in the background. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Crystal clear amber/golden hue. Off-white suds evaporate quickly and completely. 1/3
FLAVOR: General sweetness with a faint honey flavor. Oats may account for the sweetness. Some maize-like presence in the background, though not in the style of a cheap beer. Hops are quite low. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light body with a thin, flat mouthfeel. Smooth, refreshing and quaffable. Clean aftertaste. Should have more body considering the ABV and higher CO2. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty tasty for a cream ale, though might be better judged (and marketed) as a blonde ale. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 33/50

From an old can that was kept in the fridge. Aroma is heavy caramel, which I think is a result of the age. Flavor reflects that too. Not a bad, beer; just not much of a cream ale at this point.
