Poured a clear golden color with a huge white head. Fizzy body. Aroma of light sweet malt. Wife said it smells like Bud. Flavor is lgiht, sweet, and a touch of hops. Light bodied and smooth. Could be a nice warm weather beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and corn-laced, could be disgusting, but isn’t. The aroma is soft and undetectable, but the flavor is grainy and ful l (for the style). Finish is sweet, with a subdued bitterness and a nice lacing on the tongue.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 I fianally found this one at my local beer store and had to give it a try. The first thing that surprised me was the aroma...baby throw up. The flavor reminded me of a mixture of Budweiser and Schlitz malt liquor. This is horrible. I actually poured half the glass down the drain. I love Terrapin Rye Pale Ale and was anticipating another great beer from this Georgia brewery. The only explanantion I could come up with was that this is their attempt at a mass market beer. I’ve just lost a lot of respect for this brewery. I guess I can always use the remainder of the sixer for cooking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at Charlotte Oktoberfest ’04. Golden body with a creamy white head. This was a heavy beer for its coloring, and the mouthfeel made the beer a little bit unenjoyable overall. I may need to try it again when I haven’t been sampling so much.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer looked great, smelled great and was even refreshingly lingering, but it still didn’t live up to my expectations. Maybe the cream ale style is just too mild for my tastes. Still a very thirst-quenching beer that was MILES ahead of the other fair (Bud Light, Miller) at Rocky Mountain Pizza.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Foundry. Fairly weak but pleasant hop aroma, on the grassy side, and perhaps a slight lager skunkiness. Light golden in color with a moderate/thin white head, and a slight cloudiness. Flavor was, like the aroma, relatively weak but pleasant, with a nice malt sweetness and just enough hops to balance. But what I really liked was the mouthfeel, a totally unexpected creamy thickness that I really enjoyed. In this beer, one can experience the flavor of an extra pale ale accompanied by the mouthfeel of a fine porter, and that’s pretty cool. Not a favorite of mine, but an interesting experience that I enjoyed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Summits. Light gold color with hardly any head at all. This may be one of my least favorite styles. Hardly any hop taste but the malts are hidden also. Just smooth any creamy, so I guess it’s what it’s supposed to be.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very slight hop aroma. Body is very smooth with just enough bitterness to give it character. A very good session beer, but not something I would search out.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, shaker. Small, fizzy, white head is quickly diminishing. Body is a clear light yellow. Grain and cereal malt (M); flower and grass hops (L); aromas of grape, apple and pear. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Lingering bitterness. Light body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: more than I was expecting from a cream ale!
