From a bottle. Light yellow color. Some hops, as well as yeast. Light overall, but not bad. Good for warm weather.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale gold with a medium foamy head. Aroma is grainy though not unpleasant malt, light lemony hop.
Flavour is more of the same, corny sweetness, lemony hop. I like that this is only 4% as well.

So far the ratings appear to match my preference for the three 3rd Street beers. This was my middle of the three. It seems drinkable enough, with a light yellow color and a potentially wheat ale sensibility, and there’s some fruitiness to be liked. As it warmed it turned out a bit rougher and more vegetal than ideal, however. Still, drinkable; wasn’t a drain pour, unlike the brown ale, which will be my next rating.... Bottle.

I bought this beer on a whim at the Four Firkins. It was Surly tasting night so i wanted something easy to drink for the weekend. This is one of the better cream ale’s i have had. This isn’t a pungent beer by any means. At 4.1% it is very light on the palate.The Malts used in this were Pale and Wheat and they went with Northern and Saaz for hops (German and U.S). I would recommend this beer to someone that is looking for something different than a pilsner. Third Street Rise to the top Cream ale has a light, crisp finish with a well balanced creamy malty aftertaste. I will be buying this again. Excited to try rest of the beers from this new brewery.

Not much of a distinguishable scent on this beer. Taste it a little bit of hops, little cream and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from 12-oz bottle, supplied by distributor. Pours a semi-clear golden straw colored brew with a decent sized white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of light creamed corn, light spicy and grassy hops and a touch of honey. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, corn and light grassy hops. Finish is semi-sweet, crisp and a quick bitterness then a sweet malt aftertaste. A solid cream ale. Similar to the macro-produced golden ale but with more flavor body.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a bit of hoppiness with sweet creamy grain backing. Flavor is much more creamy with some earthy grain backin and a hint of grassy hops.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Wheat, light malt, and a small cream soda element. Not bad!
