[email protected]: This didn't do anything for me. A suppose it was creamy but it wasn't refreshing and the flavors didn't seem well integrated. A rare miss for deschutes.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 On tap at The Lions Pub in Vancouver. A golden beer with ample white head and a beer nose. I’m surprised to say it, but I like the creaminess of this beer. 3.3

400ml draught at MKT. Gold with a solid creamy nitro head. Aromas of light fruity malts. Taste is fruity and bready, grainy, a little sweetness. Light hop notes and pretty low bitterness. Typical nitro body. Drinks easy, but not a lot going on with this one.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light grass, floral, meadow, herbal aromatics (like lavender). Taste is creamy, soft with some light grass and herbal bitterness. Not typically a fan of this style but one of the better cream ales I’ve had.

Not a huge fan of the nitro, feels a little slimy compared to a regular beer.

Bill Becker (1104) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Pours hazy orange yellow, +1" head of foam. Really light smell. Some lemon citrus and cracker malt. Taste is more assertive but still light..like most cream ales. Pale malt earthiness, light hoppy character that shows up in the finish as a gentle touch of lemon citrus. Definitely maltier than hoppy. Light bodied. Decent drinkability. I wonder what it would be like without the nitro?

On tap at the brewery. Pours out golden topped with a white cream head. Nose is light grain and some grassy notes. Taste is more of the nice light malts some cereal and grass.

IndianaRed (4869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2017
On tap at the Bend BrewPub Clear pale golden thick dense white nitro head. Classic cream ale flavors...that is tinsay not much. That and the nitro makes for a smooth pillowy feel.

Draft served in a nonic glass Appears golden with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is is mild, and has that backyard grass smell. Taste and feel follows with a grassy flavor and soft, light body. It lacks a cream corniness that I often find in cream ales, but that is alright.
