Was turned onto this beer from the staff at Hops and Vines in Shakopee. It is an upgraded alterative to Spotted Cow. Since you can only buy Spotted cow in WI. Very sessional beer, smooth with slight tartness. can easly drink several of these beers on a hot day.

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.
