This beer is a brilliantly clear gold color and is topped by a thin, frothy, pale, off white colored head. A soft fruity aroma is a mix of kiwis (I think), apple and honeysuckle. Actually more than fruity this reminds me of an aromatic sweet nectar from a flower. I really like the aroma, there is a soft herbal character to it as well an perhaps even a touch of diacetyl, which only adds to the complexity.

The taste is a touch creamy feeling with a definite malt sweetness and again just a hint of diacetyl. A nice honey flavor runs throughout as does a nice hoppy, herbal bitterness. The bitterness fades in the finish where the sweet honey-like nectar notes linger on for a bit. The mix of flavors in this cream ale are just so well integrated. In fact this is the first cream ale I have had that I would be happy to drink again. Despite this, I don't see this being too much for the craft beer neophyte or reluctant brew-pub goer.
