Bottle. The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that diminished down to a very thin film and tiny collar creating some fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, a grassy hop and a musty cobweb yeast with a hint of corn and not much else. The taste was a bitter acidic with a pronounced grainy feel from the beginning and finished mildly hoppy with a slight metallic presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slight bitterness and a mild metallic taste left to linger. Mouthfeel was very light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall a pretty basic brew that was more like a light beer than a Cream Ale, although it did have a decent bitter undertone to it...

Fruity and clean and I really enjoyed this - surprised to see it here as cream ale but I don’t really understand that style anyways.

On tap at the Charlotte, NC airport. Yellow, heady pour. Slight haze. Big citrus hop aroma, which is unusual for a Blonde...Unless I was misinformed of what I was drinking. Toasted bread. Light to medium body. Same big citrus hop finish with roasted sweet malts below. It is more like an IPA.

Bottle into glass at the beach in Nc. Very pale straw color w white head. Corn aroma. Bitter indistinguishable hop taste. No real creaminess. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light golden color. It has the taste of grass, with corn, and faint floral elements. It has a clean finish with a bit of an astringent bite.

On tap at Tobacco Road. Go hoos! Crisp clean dry. More presence and flavor than the full steam IPA I just had if that’s telling you anything.

Alright...eh...won't buy again. Bitter on the back of the tongue. Doesn't taste like a cream ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head. Aroma is clean malt and earthy hops. Taste has a weird iron metallic note that just grows the more you drink it. No bueno.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Got a six pack while on vacation. Pours a pale golden yellow color, with an inch of white foam. Aroma of some malt sweetness, and a bit lemony, minimal hops. Taste is grainy malt taste, with some mild lemon at the end. Palate on the lighter side, medium body, crisp and clean aftertaste. Overall, not great but ok.
