Pours clear goldeb with a creamy medium white head. Aroma has fresh grass and citrusy notes. Flavor follows suit...very fresh and bright hoppiness...rindy/herbal bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry rindy/herbal bitter finish that lingers to resinous. Baseball sucks anymore...but I did like Eddie Murray as a kid. Nice beer.

Union Craft Anthem
Thanks Nate. Can to becher pint glass, the appearance was a soft yellow cream color with a slim cap of a little white foamy head. Sly lace, just slid right into the beer. The aroma had some sweet grains, subtle sweet dough, light citrus, and some soft sweet biscuit. The flavor was sweet throughout with the normal lingering sweet doughy aftertaste I expect from the style which guided into the finish as directed. The palate was light bodied with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, for an Americanized cream ale, what’s not to love. Are they drinking kegs of this at Orioles games? I would if I lived in the Baltimore area.
