Light-bodied and refreshing, this beer is uniquely based on the Cream Ale style ... an original, true American beer modeled after the light lagers of its time. A subtle tartness adds to the beers crisp finish, making it the perfect summer quencher.

Bottle. An eggshell white head tops a medium bright gold body. Apple bread is in the sweet nose with some cherries. There is also some hint of nuttiness. This tastes fairly sweet with some pears. There is also some cinnamon. Sweet and light, this is decent.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale golden color. Small bubbly white head leaves quickly. Perfumy, sweet , Malt nose. Notes of anise and apricot. Flavor is light grainy malt. Some fresh fruit syrup, like you’d did in a fruit cocktail. Light bodied and bland. Could be a refreshing brew come summer.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2017 I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy, golden color with a white head. The aroma was lemon and other fruit. The taste is lemon, orange, bread, and a very subtle hop bitterness. This was pretty okay and refreshing.

Poured a clearish gold, with a 2 finger head that held for 3 minutes. Left a nice lacing on the glass. Taste of tart lemon and very crisp. Great session brew.

12oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a fluffy, snow white head that has good retention and lacing. Smell is of light fruits, lemon, biscuits and some faint hops. Crisp, light, and plenty of carbonation in the mouth. Creamy and sweet up front, with a light hop presence which brings just a bit of bitterness to the finish. Overall, a nice summer cream ale.

I had to laugh, I saw cheap’s rating a few down from mine. Typical good Cheap brew, nothing rude or offensive in this one. Decent cream ale, good light lager.

JonLaRue (59) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Tasted from a 12 oz bottle. Faint odor of stale white bread. Appearance typical of a lager. Tastes like a cross between a cream IPA and a lager. Sadly too light on hops as an IPA. A tad bitter for a lager. This beer is a cross between an two styles and happily doesn’t take much identity from either. Its refreshing and has more character than bud light. This is a good beer to switch someone from mass market to craft, though it will leave the seasoned taster wanting more.

Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some grain and light sugar notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of biscuit malt, grain and grass. Fairly sweet overall. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

cheap (5698) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Froma twist off bottle. Looks like any other cheap lager. Decent fresh beery aroma, a little metallic on the olfactory. Fromthe tastebud start, this is a pretty refeshing beer, glasd I tried it. It seems to have good manners. Would appeal to the typical lager lover, never over the top. Hides alky fairly well, even for 4.5%. Yes, good overall pleasant beer experince. On style for an enjoyable cream ale. Easy to like.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2013
When poured, this beer’s aroma is very light, combining hints of dough yeast and sweet malts, and the appearance combines a clear light yellow color with a medium white head. The taste is slightly sweet and a touch sour, which makes for a barely there flavor, and the palate continues this overall light quality of the beer with the fusion of the light body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a sweet finish.
