Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with little head and slight lacing. Aroma is light, malty grain, with a touch of hops and sweetness. Taste is all of that, but slightly more assertive on the grains. Clean, well-balanced, and a smooth finish. Pretty nice light beer, best cream I’ve had.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Draft at St Mikes. Very clear pale straw with a white head. Citrus and strong grainy aspects with bubblegum and corn. Astringent bubblegum and corn, honey flavor with a awkward slightly bitter finish. Eh.

Draft: : Poured a clear white golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is soft notes of grain and fruit. Very refreshing and reminds me of a good brew after a hard day’s work in the yard.

growler. pours a pale straw yellow with a 2+ finger white head. sweet nose with honey, bread notes, green apples and at times light vomit - not sure what is causing that. med soft creamy body with apples, citrus notes, bread, honey and smooth malts. lasting finish with sweet fruit notes, honey and grains. very drinkable on a hot day, but I’d rather have an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: sun-soaked straw under a fluffy white head with an intriguingly almost light grassy green hue along the edges. A few random bubbles trickle to the top only to meet a solid layer of white resistance.
Nose: crisp blanched bushels of straw with fresh green grass blades. Creamy sweetness along the edges. Lemon cakes with sugar crusts. Sweet grains, sweet rolls, and a touch of raw grains. Key lime zest. Bright cereal grains.
Palate: key lime rind along the edge and in the finish. Medium-light weight. Sweet honey-coated toasted cereal grains. Key lime and lemon in the middle with a light, uplifting dry finish. Honey is a subtle touch, kissing the grains and gently infusing freshly baked breads with its essence. Sugared lemon candies up front along with lemon cake with a thin sugar glaze coating. Playful. Rind slowly grows in the back swallow.
Final Thoughts: a very tasteful take on the cream ale from yet another Florida brewery making itself known in the seemingly always behind everything sunshine state. Good stuff; perfect for a day on the beach or out on the ocean relaxing with nary a care in the world.

På det hela taget en öl som påminner om en lager. Liknande gräsighet i både smak och arom, samma ljusa öl med vita skum, svagt av lime och ljus knäckebröd i smaken.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
På fat hos Cigar City. Ljusgul öl med vitt skum. Doft av bröd, lätt gräsighet och honungssötma. Samma i smaken med visst citrusinslag. Inte alls vad jag trodde att en Cream Ale skulle vara.

Not really a bad brew. Smells sweet, a little bit like Twinkies... The mouth feel is dry yet smooth, and with a subtle taste of honey in the background. Light and session-able, just not anything spectacular though.
