Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pours just watery clear with a faint hue of yellow color supporting a thin bright white head. I don’t think I’ve seen a beer that was this close to looking like a glass of tap water. The aroma is very light with a sense of graininess, noble hops and malts. The taste is sweet and somewhat watery to start beginning with honey sweetness and then some graininess rolling into mild amounts of noble hoppiness around the edges. The above average carbonation helps give it a little bit of a flavor kick to help keep it from being too watery. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
On draft at FBG Fest 2010. Pours almost transparent gold with a big white head. Nose is honey, slight malt, and some grain. Flavor is a bit watery with edges of carbonation lifting up some of the honey flavor. Interesting, but it is a mild cream ale that is decent overall.

Tap @ CCB. Poured an extremely pale yellow color with a thin white head, looks odd. The nose is malt forward, with some earthy hops, light grain, and honey. Medium to thin body with fizzy carbonation and a slightly watery mouth feel. Flavor is mostly honey sweetness, some grassy hop notes as well as some more grain or cereal. Finishes with more honey.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear, pale, yellowish-golden color with a small, wispy head of off-white foam. A thin, soapy wash glazes the glass, breaking apart into small, scattered spots of lace. The aroma is simple, yet clean, showing a base of fresh cereal grain along with notes of creamed corn and flaked oats, with just a faint smattering of floral hops. Flavors follow right in line, again showing basic, clean grains, most prominently corn and cereal, with a touch of honey sweetness and a tiny dash of peppery petals. The body is on the thin side, yet balanced in terms of carbonation and crisp on the finish. Easy drinking, inoffensive little session brew. Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Yellow, mostly clear, nice dense white head. Clean, sightly corny aroma. Maybe a little grassy, was well. Dryish palate, some corn, some grass. Not bad.

Tallahassee, Fl - Momo’s Pizza - on tap. Pours alight golden with little to no head. Brief hint of mint and fruit cocktail aroma. Flavor is mellow with some pears. light graininess, a hint of fruit cocktail and a hint of honey in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of spritziness to it which sits nice.

On tap at Cigar City. Rather plain cream ale, a little hop flavour, a bi of honey. So-so Aurelius (5651) - 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. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
Tap at Cajun Café. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head leaving lace. Aroma is sweet malty honey and fruity. Flavor is malty bitter sweet fruity and honey. Finishes bitter sweet. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
My Bottom Line:
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.
