COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by ale breweries to compete with the surging popularity of lager beer, it remains a regional specialty in the Northeast United States. Our version is light-bodied and pale straw color, but uses no corn or rice as many of the original versions did. The result is a supremely malty and refreshing version of a style dear to our hearts

Can @Craigs. [Paper Backlog] Pours golden, white head. Nose is malty, floral, it smells sweet, slight grass. Taste is more of the same with a flight floral note.

Slightly hazy golden and light copper coloured body, with a nice, three centimetre tall pure white head on top that fades quite quickly. Aroma of pale malt, some cardboard, lactose and a dose of yeast and bread, all with a light corn aroma and a dash of grain. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grain and malty flavours at first with some earthiness noticeable along with a smooth sweetness, showing lactose and sugars from canned corn. Aftertaste is a bit underwhelming with a hint of grass, coupled with a lot more lactose, grain, canned corn and dry earthy malts. Overall, a decent cream ale, but showing a bit too much pungency and astringency at first, but the concept is about right here, plus it was in a nice can, which helps. If you are a fan of the style or something different than the typical IPA, this might be a good option for you! I sampled this sixteen ounce, pint can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 02-July-2016 for US$2,75 sampled at home in Washington on the Fourth of July, 2017 for my three beer celebration - red/white/blue, and this was sampled as my ’White’.

From bottle at Camping Ratebeer ’15. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, not much else. Taste is yeasty and sweet with a soft bitter finish. Medium body and carbo.

Hey, craft that tastes like a straight up better version of cheap beer. Where have you been all my life? A nice grain character and a pils-like level of hop bitterness. I’m into it.

The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours light gold white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with many pale malts. Taste is like a golden ale that is on the hoppier end. Still it is very smooth. Easy to drink. Body is not too light. Kind of grainy. Not bad.

nota (47) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
Clear and pale golden with lazy carbonation. Minimal white head dissipates quickly. Grassy and piney with corn-cereal and a slight mineral back; looks and tastes like a fuller-bodied pilsner. Finishes semi-dry with sweet corn and a final point of herbal bitterness. Refreshing and light, a great beer for the beach.

Werckmeister (3272) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 12, 2016

McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Very pale slightly greasy with no head. Nose is grassy, chalky and creamy unsurprisingly. Initial taste is a nice dewy, light crispbread and malty minerally. Carbonation is solid and a light enough mouthfeel. Finishes rich enough, lingers neat breadiness. Bit plain.

Bottle, Garvies, Cheers Pauli G
