This is my first cream ale. AleSmith makes nothing but perfection. I hope this becomes number one on the cream ale list. I love the subtle hint of malt and the mellow finish. Great job Alesmith!

"Definitely not a favorite style, but a favorite brewer, so there was hope of a style-redifing moment. Alas, it was not to be. Solid brew. Good for the style, but not enough to come near ANY of their other offerings. Light amber pour, aroma and flavor of hay and sweet malt. Feel thin and slightly creamy with a touch of lactose on the palate. Just pretty good. Was hoping for more."

Draft at 38 Degrees. Brilliant clear golden with good lacing. Grassy, lemon, grain aroma. Subtle but nice. Great smooth restrained grain flavor, maybe a touch more hops than most cream ales. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel with a good carb level. Really a standout in this boring style.

DiarmaidBHK (3455) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Draft at brewery. Pours clear and golden yellow with white head. Not much on the nose. There’s a corn sweetness on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s the best of a shit style. They probably made it for all the people who tag along with the beer geeks who ask for the closest thing to Coors Light.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Decent cream ale on tap at the brewery, not my favorite either, but drinkable and sweet. Gold pour, white head, some vanilla in taste and nose, okay.

On tap @ AleSmith. Nice golden lemon color with a tightly packed ivory head. Citrus, lactose, creamsicle-like with a thick, coating texture and light carbonation. Not a huge fan of the style but this was tasty and highly drinkable.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2013
On tap @ Alesmith. Pours golden yellow, with a thick eggshell white head. Smells like sweet malt, grassy hay, bread and a little musky hops. Taste is bread, wet hay, light malt and a little hops. This is a thin bodied carbonated beer. Reminds me more of a lager than a cream ale.

Draft at Urge Gastropub. Crystal clear pale yellow, with a large sticky white head. Light sweetness, very crackery, grass, and light earthy hops. Very clean easy drinking.

StefanSD (2149) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Taster at the brewery. Pale gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The nose was light and somewhat indistinct with hay and grass. The flavor was rather pleasant with hay, breads, gains, biscuit and a touch of vanilla. The palate was full and smooth with medium carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: decent cream ale.

Four ounce sample at the brewery. Hazy yellow pour. Soft body. Light carbonation. Flavor of bread and hay.
