Being someone who has not gagged at maybe 3 out of 20+ cream ales I’ve tried, I didn’t hate this beer. I’m trying to gain an appreciation for cream ales as a style but I find my palate just doesn’t want to cooperate. That being said, from draft, a sweet bready goodness emanates from the glass immediately and it has a beautiful golden straw color that will catch light and your attention from a distance. That’s about as elegant as I get in the description because the taste is nothing to write about. General adjunct flavor or corn and oats, with a very lagery finish leave me wanting to push it away but I continue on to try and enjoy this beer. It’s just not for me but I appreciate the quality and complexity of it’s creation.

Pours clear golden yellow with white head. The aroma has pale make, earthy hops and pretty clean. It has a very light crisp body with sharp carbonation. It has pale malt, sulfur, sweetness and fresh cut grass. Nice.

Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, tartness, vinegar and hint of popcorn. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long slightly tart and citrus finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft. This beer have gone bad but I feel like it’s probably better this way.

Floral aroma and dry finish as advertised. Nothing really catches your interest in the middle, though. Pale in color, light in body, light toast, cream and floral hops. Meh. 22.
