I got this bottle in a trade with leftmindedrighty, Thanks Aaron!
This beer pours from 12oz bottle a slightly hazy light gold with a small, quickly receding head of foam.
The smell is very light..hard to detect anything. Maybe a bit of hops? I keep on sniffing but not much is registering.
The taste is another matter. First thing I notice is a real grainy and bready flavour followed some citrus and a slightly sweet malt flavour. Pretty tasty in my book. It has a light mouthfeel, the carbonation is high, and it finishes with a grassy hop kick that lingers on for some time after the swallow. A pretty nice Golden..err...Cream Ale and one that I could easily kick back a few of.
Thanks again, Aaron!

Easy to drink and boring enough for style. Golden pale pour. Light crisp papery finish. Sampled on tap at atlanta airport location. ARH (1139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2016
On tap, poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is a pronounced grains note with a light sweet lemon backing note. It pours a brilliant and clear, oily gold topped by a soft, soapy, abundant white head that retains well with fluffy islands, and leaves a good lace. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The texture is slick with foamy carbonation and a medium light body. The flavor profile is, up front, grains and lemon, with a crisp and clean finish that’s refreshing with a mild citrus zip that turns to bread with a light buttery character. The aftertaste is a light citrus rind. HuskerTan (2451) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - OCT 29, 2015

A- Corn, grains, straw.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Corn, slightly sweet, grains, cereal, grassy, subtle spice, butter.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish.
O- Let’s be honest, who likes cream ales. It doesn’t take much to dislike them. I can’t say I have any hate against this but I could leave it. Just bland and boring and a bad aftertaste. 574deadzone (1420) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2015
As "Golden Ale" in a sweet can. Pours hazy to cloudy straw gold with a bigger foamy, pillowy eggshell head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves honey, biscuits, light citrus and spicy hops, and golden malt. Somewhat sweet, lightly bitter. Medium bodied, creamy, slightly oily, with a drying lightly toasty honey malt finish. A really nice drinkable brew that would definitely be good in those steamy Georgia summers. I dig this a lot. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
