3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Farrah’s in Gainesville, FL. The pour is a clear, light yellow topped by a dense, off-white head. Nice retention and lace. Aroma is soft, fruity, mild adjunct and grain. Sweet melons and sugar comes through. Taste is malt heavy, biscuit, sugar, heavy butter biscuit with mild diacetyl and lemon. Bitter, nutty, sharp. Perhaps a bit too rich and too buttery. But definitely on style for cream ale (though diacetyl should be avoided but doesn’t detract too much here), which should be the ale equivalent of pale lager. Very nice- a good stepping stone beer for someone trying to move away from macro pale lager and into craft beer.

On draft that poured a pale golden color with aromas of cereal, corn, and a touch of floral hops. Flavors match the aroma with a touch of sweet honey in the aftertaste. Beer was crisp and an easy drinker.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Clear, light yellow lager with a small, wispy, white head. The nose is of honey, grilled corn and warm, spent mash. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Flavor-wise, notations of pale grains and honey predominate. There’s some really decent bitterness here, but the folks in Gainesville stay true to style with grainy sweetness standing out. Finishes crisp, snappy, and then moderately sweet, but fairly coarse.
