  • Pours with a slight haze while almost an inch of light tan, thick foam coats the liquid. Retention is average on the outside while lacing is juicy and thick, quickly receding back.

    Aroma is straight forward cream ale: bready malt, grass hops, and some sweet grains.

    Taste seemed to be a bit surprising. There was a creamy, teetering on a cream soda type of flavor that really built from the middle to the end. Not much else there as I didn't take another sip.

    Light body with a good amount of carbonation.

    The taste did this beer in for me. I don't want a beer that makes me think of soda pop. My first beer from Iowa won't deter me from trying something else. Enjoy!

  • Pours a slightly hazy orange, pink, amber with a creamy white head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a thin layer of tightly formed bubbles floating on top. Very little lacing.

    Aroma is creamy and sweet. I am getting grain, bready malts and a hint of vanilla.

    On the taste I am getting a big caramel malt flavor that lasts all the way to the finish. Starts sweet and keeps going to the finish. A big blast of vanilla on the finish reminds me of a cream soda.

    Light body with light carbonation. Creamy, but at the same time seems watery. Finishes with a sweet stickiness.

    Overall an interesting beer. It is enjoyable, but seems a little bit too sweet, almost like a desert beer. The flavors seem fake to me. Like it has flavoring syrup in it, which seems odd. Too sweet to drink more than one in a session. Worth a try if you have a sweet tooth!
