Hazy amber and deep bronze coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall tan head - absolutely beautiful. Aroma of pale malt, a touch of light hops, alcohol and a tiny bit of sugars. Light-bodied; Mild flavours all around with some nuts, some earth, some wheat, a bit of mash or spent grain, some sweetness and a tiny bit of earthy english hops. Aftertaste is just as mild as the flavour - with perhaps a bit of malt, but just about water in the palate. Overall, a pretty mild and flavourless beer - if you want that, then drink this, but otherwise, this is just lacking in flavour, depth, complexity and just taste. I sampled this 473mL can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 19-July-2012. finol (3365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2012
Can at Bishops Linnegatan.
Pours a red shade of amber with a creamy head.
A very smooth and nice beer with a light hint of citrus.
The best in a rather dull style... DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Ariel. Clear amber with a white head. "Green" aroma of hops with pine needles, some flowers and marijuana notes. Flavor has sweetish malt and a mildly bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and refreshing. rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pretty good. It was indeed sweet then bitter - especially the first sip out of the can, a definite sweetness with very mild carbonation, which allowed the sweetness to come through. Its followed by enough bitterness to wipe away the sweet sensation, though. After a few sips, the flowery hop aroma and the drinking-from-a-can didnít mix well, so poured into a glass, where the aroma fully came through. The sweet/better never became more than the sum of their parts, though. A good beer but I wonít be buying a 4pack anytime soon. tmoreau (4298) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 On tap at the World of Beer in Naperville, IL., and shaker served with a hazed, amber color, average amount of off white, cream & bubbles head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was citrus, hop cone-like scent, light resin, and some sweetness. Medium bodied, the flavor added fair malt, and moderate hop bitterness that was earthy, rind-like, and somewhat lingering. As the beer warmed toward the finish, this bitterness showed a less appealing abrasive side that made the ale a bit difficult to finish. A Pale Ale, maybe even a session IPA, but not a Cream Ale. Recently shared a 12 oz. can with beer friends. The aroma was dank grain, with a hint of pit fruit. Light to medium bodied, fair carbonation, and modest, rind-like bitterness. Lighter textured, and less astringent, but no real improvement from the draft version.

Golden pour. Easy drinking but nothing special. Grassy wheat and smooth taste. Good beer

Can from wine warehouse - pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is floral. Taste is sweet as described with a few notes piney bitterness. Palate is creamy and finishes a bit dry. Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2012
12oz can. Pourds hazy amber, off-white head. Aroma is bready with a surprising amount of hops (I was expcting a lot of malt based on the description). Flavor is similarly hoppy, but nice and... sweet on the finish, as promised. Not sure Iíve had many a "cream" beer before, but this is enjoyable. Nice beer for a 90* day. Long live the can! odinstyr (794) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a foamy 2-fingered off-white head. Smells of caramel, cereal, floral. Taste is moderately sweet with a hint of bitterness, reminiscent of a heller bock. hamachi (1) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2012 does not count
Pours a lovely, hazy amber with a massive, fluffy, long lasting head. Nice, bready aroma with noticeable citrus and grassy hops notes. The tang of hops hits you up front but what makes this beer palatable (for someone who isnít a fan of over-the-top hops) is the sweetest finish. The teeny but of caramel notes in the malt cuts straight through the hops bite makingvfor a smooth, refreshing brew. Almost creamy mouthful with light carbonation. Not lacking carbonation though. This is a perfect beer for hot New York City summers. Pour it cold into a frosty mug and youíll feel the grime fade away.
