Clear pale golden color, white head. Sweet, mineral, a bit flat taste. Medium to fizzy a bit thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, some compost scent.
Tap at Pegs Cantina. Clear yellow pour with a monster white head. Honey and citrus, smooth but light palate. Not bad. cubs (10675) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a clear, very, very light yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, lemon, a bit grainy, herbal aroma. A bit sweet and kind of high carbonation, but not all that hard to drink. Not a style I particularly care for, but this was ok.

Draught @ Tu Tu Tango. Bright yellow gold, average white head. Soft honey and leafy hops underscore clean pale malted grains with a mildly bitter finish. Paperboard dryness creeps in late. Still, a highly satisfying honey ale. sebletitje (10220) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
Draft @ FBGBF ’10. Swamp Head. Interesting brewery, up and coming and quite honestly, each of their beer is unique. The incorporation of locality in the brewing process is always a nice extra.
Pours nice hazy golden, white head.
Aroma and flavors, lots of good honey sweetness. The addition of NZ hops always brings a great dimension to the beer that I’ve come to enjoy a lot.
There is a mild touch of barley, pale malts, that is nicely mixed with the bitter hops though keeping a unique honey flavor coupled with some tropical notes.
Light and refreshing. Greta to see them come to Tampa. onceblind (10098) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear golden with a wee tight white foamy cap. Nose is biscuity but also grassy with a semisweet crisp blonde grain tone. Flavor is grainy sweet with a touch of corn and very light grassy hops. Earthy and a bit biscuity throughout. MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
My Bottom Line:GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
This slender and bubbly Cream Ale possesses floral honey allusions and leveled herbal hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the clear very pale blond.
-The mouthfeel is very lean, even sharing flavors, leanness and color with many Japanese rice brews.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The aroma becomes quite pleasant upon warming up. But when served ‘cool’, there is not much to get from it.
On tap at Coffee District.
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.
