3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet caramel and brown sugar nose, a hint of cherry or sherry, as Bück, says, a little buttery; smooth palate and some honey, toffee and nutmeg notes; one of the better cream ales I’ve had

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber color, off-white head and no lacing. The nose is odd, a bit funky with some light sherry and sweet molasses. The flavor is lightly hoppy, sweet and creamy? Maybe, not that much though. This could use some work. Dry empty malts with an edge of hops and a center of water and alcohol.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Cerveza and Crema are usually flags that pop up when I see a beer a don’t like. I know to stay away from both. However this stuff is incredible. I’ve never really enjoyed cream beer before but wow. I have a roomate who almost gave the full bottle back to me when he read the label, after he tried one he bought a case. Nice orange-amber color, (almost resembles their Boont amber) and a nice off-white head that will hang around if you pour the beer a little agressivley. Huge, but balance, malt (crystal, maybe a little wheat?) And a smooth creaminess that makes this a sexy brew. Suprisingly refreshing, the hops come in as the malt is on the way out, and give a clean finish. If you can find this beer give it a try. Everyone I know who has tasted this beer loves it, and along with me have new faith in cream beer.

Poured a medium mohagany color, with a thin white head. Which had minimal retention. Aroma was mainly doughy with some mild fruity and honey notes in the background. Taste was mainly malty. with a lot of minor tastes in the finish. Which consisted of fruits and spices and a creamy finish. Hops bitterness was minimal at best. Seem the be gassy which made it heavy on the stomach. Good for its style, and maybe enjoyable during the summer but in the end it’s average at best.
