COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. It’s 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!

Pours. Bright copper with a white head leaving strong lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, no bitter hops present in the nose taste follows, very malty and creamy. This is so easy to drink and so very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just OK, but I am not a huge fan of the style in general. Smooth and drinkable, but not something I would got out of my way for.

Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is super faint but has light sweet maltiness...caramel and light chocolate. Flavor definitely has light chocolate and mild roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is roasty with cocoa notes.

Appearance: Dark copper in color, tan head. Aroma: strong aromas of vanilla ice cream and caramel. Taste: Sweet caramel and vanilla flavor. All malt flavor and almost no perceivable bitterness. Palate: Smooth and medium bodied Overall: Great cream ale. As others have commented it would pair well with dessert.

(on tap) Clear coppery mahogany with slight white head. Aroma is candy with subtle stone fruit and floral notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated with good mouthfeel: smooth and with a bit of interesting fizz. Unusual taste - there’s a lot of cream soda in there - also candy and sweetish malt with very little bitterness. Despite all these sweet flavours it is not oversweet or cloying. Overall this is an unusual, maybe even clever, beer that is easy to drink.

Poured out of a can. Nice frothy head, Deep amber color, with a mild aroma of ice tea and some spice. Tastes of vanilla ice cream, or maybe even a root beer float. Very creamy and delicious! A fabulous summer beer! This would pair well with just about any desert.

Courtesy of craftycarl21 at Smoke and Barrel. Hazy orange pour with a small off white head. Caramel malt and cream soda are pretty much all I got. Vanilla extract. Not awful, but not great.

Nose of caramel malts. Taste is same with a slight hop note. Very thin finish. Taste isn’t bad but this is not my style.
