Bottle, from Julioís. Good nose, sweet. Kinda cream soda, little fruity(strawberry), little bready, little grassy. Nice clean orangy brown color, ok head that faded quickly to a ring. Sweet flavors. Malty. Like aromas with a little lemon and caramel. Thinner body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet, crisp finish. Nice summer brew, a departure from the traditional summer beers out there.

Pours to a medum head, carmel color, not much aroma. Very little taste; slighly malty favor, with a clean finish. Not one of my favs, especially for $8 for a six-pack.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Perhaps the darkest cream ale Iíve encountered. Copper hue with aroma of bready malt spice, hopcit, with lemon as the primary citrus element. Tastes full-vodied for a cream or summer ale, with hints of bready malt, lemongrass, hops, spice (black pepper), and fruit. Nice complexity and wonderful balance. I bought a bottle of this at State Line in Elkton, MD, and I hope they have more when I return this weekend. God, Itís great to have relatives around the DE/MD border!!

On Tap at Moan and Dove. Very very pleasant cream ale! This was a delightful root beer float -- but better! Strangely worked well as a summer ale, and basically Iím just glad itís not another "summer wheat!"

Surprisingly light for an amber colored-creme ale. It poured dark/amber-red. Smelt sweet like sugar, baked corn bread. Flavored was subtle. Refreshing with a smooth velvetly texture. Excellent beer from the bear with antlers!

Bottled. Ruby, brief head. Aroma of toffee with a hint of red currant. Fairly sweet with soothing creamy mouthfeel and medium body. The flavours are wrapped in layers of soft cotton, creating a pleasant, but one-dimensional beer.
