Tasting Notes: Initially a little sweet but at 6 weeks in the bottle has a real nice balance   

Technically this probably isn't a cream ale but I didn't really know how else to classify this beer.

If I would change anything I may remove the Corn Sugar because initially I thought it was too sweet but once this beer sits for a couple weeks it has a really nice balance.
