COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. Itís malty, very mildly hopped, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor. A cool beer for the heat, whatever your latitude!

Single can. Copper with OK head. Malty aroma with interesting dark spice and maple touch. Body and flavour are a little strong for summer. More like a sweet winter warmer. A touch on the syrupy side, thick malt and more maple than spice.

Sweet on the nose like bread dough and a bit light on esters on my first try. First sip comes across creamy and smooth and ends with a carmel sweetnesss. Out of the can and poured to a light head. This is a very easy drinking beer where you donít want a hoppier Ale.

Aroma is very faint grass and a creamy sweetness. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Taste is sort of like cream soda at first with the ever so slightest bitterness at the end. Feels creamy and really coats your mouth.

One of the few cream beers out there. Has a magnificent taste, and is best served in a glass from a can.

From a can. Tasted a little like Cream Soda mixed with beer. OK, but a little sweet for my liking

Orange-amber color with a thin head. Aroma was a sweet citrus with the wheaty background. The taste was a sweet butterscotch with a hint of citrus and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. Kind of like a spiked cream soda. Decent stuff for a summer beer, though you could probably find some better summer fare.

Very creamy with a smooth crisp taste. Great summer beer. I will probably have 6 every night I can.

Bottle: pours light brown with large creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with some cola and light peach. Flavor is mildly sweet with a soft ceamy caramel, malt, cola, and vanilla. Palate is silky and lightly sweet but rather thin especially at the end. Overall this makes for a good hot weather beer easy drinking not too thick.

Copper pour with thick white head and lots of lacing. A little to carbonated for my liking. Aroma is very pleasant, malty and unique. Flavor is much of the same, smooth creamy a la cream soda and well balanced. It is a little deserty but still extremely drinkable. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, creamy sweet and malty but very drinkable and unique.
