Reviewed from notes. From my AZ trip. The appearance was a golden and somewhat hazy yet still a clear color, slight small carbonation is seen rising, slim less than a finger’s worth of head that dies immediately and leaves no lacing. The smell had an aroma of a normal cream ale - corn malts/adjuncts - some may say and stays the same smell all throughout the entire consumption. The taste was mainly sweet through the corn malts/adjuncts, no aftertaste and no finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to somewhat medium on the body, mostly sessionable, and the carbonation is good for the style and for me and leaves a slightly creamines coating the mouth and tongue. Overall, this was a good Cream Ale worthy of coming back to.

Caytinator (899) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Green pint on tap. Thin head, good lacing, light-medium taste. Not very creamy for a cream ale, though. Balanced, no off tastes or anything in it. Not bad at all, very mild and drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (3371) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours straw with not much on the nose. Clean and crisp without a whole lot on the tongue or in the finish. It’s a gateway beer and nothing more.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2011
[Tap] Light golden pour with about an inch worth of white head. Nose is of white bread, crisp light hops and grains. Lots of light malt and grain in the taste. Smooth mouthfeel and light grassy finish. Light in palate. Easy to drink and without any major flaws.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Draft at Thunder Canyon. Pours clear green/yellow, thin white head; spotty lacing. Nose is butter, clean cardboard, barley, light nondescript spice. I don’t mean cardboard to be offensive, this isn’t the nasty wet-cardboard you get in a flawed brew, this is more fresh, clean cardboard. Flavors of spicy clean malt, some richness, medium-bodied. A very nice cream ale, which isn’t a style I normally like.
