Good cream ale with nice honey flavor to it. It falls a bit flat with the overall beer taste a little too much to make it better. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

On tap at Rockfish Grill / Anacortes Brewery, pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is light, with sweet cereal and honey notes. Flavour is light as well, with notes of cereal malt and hay. Pretty unflavoured but clean. Meh, it’s a cream ale.

Not too excited about this one. Too sweet. In fact, I passed it off to my wife. Not a bad beer, just not my style. What the hell did I expect from a beer called Honey Cream??

Draft at special brews. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a loose scattering of sudsy white film. Stale honey nose, kinda like plywood. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Stale honey mid palate, kinda like a wonder bread pb & honey sandwich except with no pb and old bread. Not as bad as i am making it sound, but it does need more dimension and freshness.

Nose has definite notes of honey and some corny notes. Hop presence is light but a touch grassy. Pours golden with some light haze and a fizzy head with not too much staying power. The flavor is corny, grainy, grassy with a light hop bite in the finish. To style, easy to drink, pleasant.

Draft at Bottleworks. Pours a darker straw yellow with a very slight haze and a creamy small white head. Nose is pretty light with hay, grass, heavier on the corn and a touch of sweetness. Lively carb with light creamy feel. Flavor is pretty straight forward with corn, slight hop grassiness and light honey sweetness. Easy drinking and nothing offensive going on here.

This was not a very exciting brew. A light bit of honey in the nose, some spices, with some lemony acidity. Creamy sweetness at first turning to a slight bitterness in the finish.
