COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a special beer style that is a satisfying refresher. The light body and pale color results from the quality malt recipe and our famous Cold Spring water. The brew is mild both in aroma and taste, but has its own unique signature. The hop impact is not excessive and compliments the pale malt flavor profile. This is an easily drinkable beer that can satisfy at a session with friends.

Hazy straw colored pour with medium white head. Aroma is almost grainy with some straw or grass notes. Taste follows the aroma, mostly bready malt flavor with just a touch of lemony citrus hop.

Tap; pours a clear gold with a thin white head; aroma is sweet malt and taste is similar; finish is wet with very little bitterness; this one is very similar to a pale lager but slightly better

YigSvartka (89) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Translucent golden yellow with a mid sized head. Relatively stunted aroma consisting of vanilla cream, malt, and honey. Smooth, creamy texture complementing a mildly sweet, dry, pale lager esque taste. Minimal hops. Smooth, but little flavour.

Easy to drink, slight malt finish. Really nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
You don’t find many Cream Ales. This is much like Spotted Cow but not as sweet, with more of a biscuity malt flavor up front. I found it nicely drinkable and refreshing.

Ericular (678) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a light yellow with decent head. Aroma is mild, lightly sweet grain, maybe a little corn. Taste is grainy, slight lemon sweetness. Overall not a terrible taste, but thin all around.

mully262 (56) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours an unique golden yellow color with medium head. Nose is floral and grassy; flavor is malt, bread, grass; smooth mouthfeel. Drinkable and unique, similar to a hef.

DrSilverworm (6809) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Cornbread in the nose. Sort of a pale-ish clear golden color. Minimal white head. Few loose bits of lace. Clean, kind of corn-bready flavor. Light carbonation. Lighter body. Lightly dry finish. Pretty clean and easy-drinking. Kind of refreshing. Light bitter, more of a sweet taste. Pretty tasty cream ale, one of the better ones I’ve had.

Pours golden with lots of creamy white head. Some Grainy and creamy aromas and flavours. Otherwise pretty neutral beer. Smooth nonetheless.

Straw and gold color. Earthy, grass aroma. Malty taste but extremely mild. Nice and refreshing but not noteworthy.

nellycale (189) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours slight hazy, yellow hue with a thin white head. Aromas of pale malt, some hint of corn, sweetness. Taste of corn, sweet, hint of citrus, somewhat chewy. A delectable light summer beer which is a nice alternative to a pilsner. Nothing flashy but for the style, really enjoyable. I like it better than New Glarus Spotted Cow which seems to be the signature cream ale in the Midwest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
