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.

Fantastic cream ale, light, nutty, toasted, full and complex. A surprising touch......

Pours pale yellow with an unimpressive he's that disappears in a flash. Champagne bubbles pop from the glass bottom. Wonderfully sweet, floral aromas. Carbonation leads on the tongue, but a nice silky mouthfeel accompanies it and pleasantly lingers afterward. The beer's flavor is the best part... goes down incredibly smooth with delicious sweet bread flavors and finishes with the slightest hop tang. Awesomely refreshing on a warm summer evening.

12oz bottle picked up in Duluth. Hazy light yellow-tan color. Lively carbonation bubbles rising. Thinnish, creamy white head. I have developed a certain appreciation for this style, and find this to be a pretty enjoyable example. Delicate light to medium body. Creamy, yeast and corn flavors merge. The hops are nice, but are probably more representative of new-school example. Solid offering if you can dig it.

Wet Yellow with a mildly hazy appearance. The flavor reminds me alot of New Glarus Spotted Cow with Corn, Yeasts, Barley and Malts. Palate is light, smooth and mild carbonated so it’s pretty easy to drink. It isn’t as sweet as Spotted Cow but it’s the closest thing Minnesota has to it as of right now. This is my first beer from Third Street Brewhouse, so I’m eager to try out more offerings from them in the future.

Pours a nearly-orange yellow color. Clear with a bit of head. Aroma is subtle, but definitely smells like fresh bread. Semi-sweet taste, bready with a bit of citrus. Clean finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skyview (5215) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2012
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.

I call this beer a Lager +. Personally, I think "cream ale" is almost misleading. I think of irish cream ales, and this is a classic lager kicked up a notch! Great summer beer for hot days. Very refreshing. Probably not the best fall/winter beer as it lacks depth and complexity. Stock the fridge with this from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.
