1232. Jack's Cream Ale

This Cream Ale pours a cloudy straw-golden color. It's topped by a half-inch, bright white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of grainy malts, slight citrus, and that sweet maltiness that I can't place, but is characteristic of cream ales.
There's a grainy start to this beer that moves into a mildly citric center with accompanying banana sweetness. There's a creamy sweetness in the finish. I've never had a cream ale with such obvious fruity esters before. This beer is clean, crisp, and well carbonated.
Overall this beer was a bit sweet, but was tasty overall.
