2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Finally have this at my local beer store! Knocking off the cream ale category once and for all. Not expecting much, but here goes: generic corn/grain beer smell with some cream. Tastes generic beer with some cream. Slightly acid finish. Got a sixer. I can see chugging a few on Super Bowl day. Drinkable. Don’t feel a need to ever get it again, though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I believe the bottle i purchased was old because when I poured this beer it was completely flat with no head even with an aggressive pour. I would like to try this beer again with a better bottle. The beer is a clear straw yellow color. The aroma is corn and not much else to it outside of some sweetness and bread. The taste seemed off but once again since I believe my bottle was old. I pick up some sweetness and white bread. I also get some very mild hops on the back end. Even with an old bottle this beer was quite drinkable and I would probably rate much higher with a fresh bottle.

Pour is slightly flat. Taste is corn and sugar with a bitter, hoppy finish. Slightly below average.

Draft at brew house - at the source. To develop the true cream ale character, cases should be piled in garage and left to age for several years. Then the cases should be stolen and drunk warm by suburban teenagers. Other than that, its just not worth drinking.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned November 3, 2014.
Glass: Otter Creek can glass.
Appearance: A massive foamy white head erupts and clings to the glass. The body is pale golden and clear.
Aroma: The aroma is a bit sweet, creamed corn esque. Nothing offensive, perhaps even a dash of banana.
Taste: Mildly sweet with a creamer like presence. I actually sort of enjoy it. There’s a hint of malty sweetness with a dash of banana noted on the finish. It reminds me a little of drinking a cream soda.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is $0.50 a can, how can I complain? I actually prefer it to the mass adjunct lagers, it has a bit more character to it.

Bottle - Pours light golden with a smallish macro head. Sweet malt aroma. Some grassy notes and sweetness. Quaffable, better than your average macro.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from can to pint glass. Thin white head dissipated quickly. Rice aroma. No malt or hop notes in the aroma or flavor. Tastes like a American pilsner. Not creamy either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can, poured into a shaker pint at approximately 40 degrees F.
A: Pours a crystalline-clear pale yellow with a two-finger white head that quickly vanishes. Looks like watered-down apple cider in the glass. Bubbles stream from the bottom relentlessly.
S: No real aroma to speak of, just some vague grain malt and grassy-fruity hop odors.
T: See the "Smell" section above. A mouthful of of slightly-hopped grains, with vague hints of grass and apple.
M: Actually slightly creamy, with lively carbonation.
O: Not a bad go for a regional macro adjunct, especially for the price point of about $0.50 per 12 oz can. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, this is a fantastic beer to bring to a party, music festival, or similar event. If you’re looking for an amazing beer experience, then by all means, pass on by. For what it is, however, this is decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet aroma of fruit. No malt or hop aroma. Nice color, no flaws there. Taste is sweet graininess with a hint of neutral noble hop flavor. Maybe hallertau? Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Highly carbonated. Any easy drinker - better than the BMC crowd.
