2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes just found after an excursion driving through West Viriginia last summer.
At the brewpub, this was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice light golden yellow color with a thin white foamy little head (bar pour). There wasn’t any lacing.
The smell was your basic cream ale styled brew - light corn/rice adjuncts but nothing off-putting - basic cream ale sweetness.
The taste was sweet and ended up leading to a sweet corn aftertaste and a watery finish (but its a cream ale, so no worries).
On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and showed a great deal of sessionability to it with a smooth carbonation running about my mouth and tongue.
Overall, not a bad cream ale, but its a style that isn’t exactly easy to make complex and show a great deal of character. Worth trying again - perhaps. If you’re at the brewpub, I say why not.
