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!

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!

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.

Dark amber with low creamy foam. Sweet aroma of toffeea and strawberries. Sweet creamy flavour of raspberries, butterscotch and cookies. Sweet and clean aftertaste.

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!"

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2005
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.

Clouded reddish amber hue, decent head formation. Mild strawberry fruitiness in the aroma. Sweet strawberry candy palate, smooth with very mild spice. Finishes fairly clean.
