3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy tangerine gold with a thin cap head. The nose is slightly wheaty and a little earthy green grassy. The taste is like a decent wheat beer, with mild biscuity doughiness, mixed with a decent amber ale, with chewy grainy pale toffee and crystal malts. A bit biscuity and chewy overall.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Into a U.S. pint glass. Half finger of head with a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The smell is mild grain.
Taste is fizzy with mild bitterness balanced with a dose of malt. Simple and mild taste overall.
Moderate carbonation with a nice fizzy. Light to medium body.
Enjoyable and quite drinkable for the long-haul.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock, AR. Pours a cloudy, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a really nice lacing throughout. A good looking cream ale? Aroma is light with some grainy pale malts, a touch of creamed corn, and a hint of grassy citrus. Flavor is similar. Thin, grainy pale malts with some corn and a touch of grassy fruitiness. Finishes slightly creamy with a very light grassy bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Smooth, clean, light body and a somewhat creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, very boring, but not a bad example of the style. Pretty nice looking with a fairly creamy palate and a light grassy fruit note.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap- Served a light straw color with a small head and bits of lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness, spice, and fresh grain. Taste is similar to aroma, malt sweetness, bit of spice and grain. Fairly light body, smooth and creamy, with a decent balance. Nice beer that goes down easy. Pleasant surprise from a small local brewer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 10/11/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, cereal/bread malts, grains, and a little caramel
Appearance: This one pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is fairly light as well, grainy, light sweetness, and mild hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light and clean, but not really that creamy, still fairly drinkable though
Overall, this a solid and drinkable beer, but it is a touch dull, and doesn’t really have that typical cream ale feel to it that I was expecting from this style. Still though, it isn’t bad, but it won’t knock anyone’s socks off either.
