On draft that poured a pale golden color with aromas of cereal, corn, and a touch of floral hops. Flavors match the aroma with a touch of sweet honey in the aftertaste. Beer was crisp and an easy drinker. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Draft. Surprised I haven’t rated this yet. Aroma is sourdough bread, light grassy/floral hops, honey. Flavor is light sweetness and bitterness with a good bit of lemon, biscuit, and honey in the finish. Palate is clean, medium carbonation, light body. An excellent session ale with a nice twist.

Golden with a mild honey nose, bready malts, mild bitter finish. Dry. Not a good match with bleu cheese Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2011
This was a nice little surprise while getting dragged to my wife’s 30th class reunion - on tap 5th Ave Tap Room. Clear, I think, bright with a small white head. A mild, but deft, bittering. The honey is not overdone - and for you non-Floridians out there, we Florida crackers do tend to go on about tupelo (which is a swamp kin of oak (sub-parenthesis: tupelo is also good for growing shiitake)) - it doesn’t crystalize, but orange blossom honey tastes better. Medium light body. Decent enough, especially for a dreadful style.

On tap at Cigar City. Rather plain cream ale, a little hop flavour, a bi of honey. So-so JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
On tap at Cigar City on 4/28/11. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Malty and corny nose with not much else going on. Malty, corny and creamy flavor with a bit of noble hop. Pretty typical cream ale. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Tap at Farrah’s in Gainesville, FL. The pour is a clear, light yellow topped by a dense, off-white head. Nice retention and lace. Aroma is soft, fruity, mild adjunct and grain. Sweet melons and sugar comes through. Taste is malt heavy, biscuit, sugar, heavy butter biscuit with mild diacetyl and lemon. Bitter, nutty, sharp. Perhaps a bit too rich and too buttery. But definitely on style for cream ale (though diacetyl should be avoided but doesn’t detract too much here), which should be the ale equivalent of pale lager. Very nice- a good stepping stone beer for someone trying to move away from macro pale lager and into craft beer. TJay7481 (96) - Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2011
It tasted fresh and lively. It had a bright golden color and had a slight fizz. A perfect taste of honey complimented the light taste hops. I seemed to enjoy the beer more as I kept drinking it. I would order this one again for sure. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2011
On draft at Datz. Very light in color, slight golden brown tints with a very clear transparent center. Aroma is slightly sweet with hints of honey. Flavor is on the same lines with the aroma, slightly sweet with honey and malts. Very sessionable.
