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!

mansquito (4450) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2015
The Well, Brooklyn tap: pours golden with a white head. Aroma is corn and hops. Taste is lightly bitter with a corny sweetness at the end. Very easy to chug and drink rapidly. Nice hoppy aftertaste. Pretty nice.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Draft at Arnold’s, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that settles into a ring and island of film, leaving spots of lace in the glass. Less sweet and more crisp and clean than other cream ales - straw, cereal, cracker, grass, mild peppery spice, cream, celery salt, and herbs. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a crisp, clean, not overly sweet mouthfeel. Good for the style, big time. Leave it to AleSmith.

growler, about as creamy as a cream ale growler can be. Perfect balance, light everything, very drinkable, great carb.

Draft at the source. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was light citrus hop notes, some light smoke? Flavor was light earthy hops, some light creamy notes, but a bit more like campfire.

ClarkVV (4591) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draught at Sunset Grille, 8/22/15.
Clear blonde body is topped by a moderate amount of white head that fades to cover steadily.
Light sourdough-like toasted malt, minerals, honeycream and just a touch of hay-like bitterness in the nose. Maybe not so cream ale-like but pleasant enough, with no flaws or alcohol.
Some sweet malt notes up front are quickly dried out by a biscuity character that also has some light cereal flavors, very dry, grassy/hay-like bitterness and very minimal fruitiness. Lots of club soda-like notes, a very watery, light body which is quite enjoyable and no flaws nor fizziness. Pretty nice cream ale, not quite as well-constructed as the Medusa Luminary I just had, but very light, quite clean and drinkable, if a bit unremarkable.
