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!

Can at Jerry’s. Copper with decent, creamy beige head / Earthy nose of sweet malt, bread, and spun sugar / Medium body, smooth and creamy, moderately sweet, with excellent balance and dry finish / Flavors of bread, toast, vanilla, and spun sugar, with notes of orange and pineapple / A distinctive cream ale, and a cut well above the usual Saturday night 6-pack style.

Draft at Smoke and Barrel DC. Slightly hazy amber pour, small head. Nose and flavor are really mostly caramel malt, touches of molasses and cream soda, and a bit of maple syrup and honey in there as well. Palate is uninteresting, doesn’t really stand out in any way. Sixpoint’s Sweet Action is a cream ale that separates itself from the pack stylistically; this does not.

Sevenlee (1264) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy amber colour with a tall frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, dried fruits and notes of honey. Taste is also sweet, fruit, caramel and some honey leading to a sweet fruity and very lightly bitter finish. Not bad.

ALLOVATE (2349) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2011
Pours a light copper and bright with a fine, tight bead and topped off by a flaccid, shortlived crown of white. Doughy, yeasty nose with evident diacetyl and notes of play-doh, creaming soda, steamed rice, raw almonds and fake vanilla, ugh!
Tastes extremely nutty and unfortunately a recreation of the nose for the rest. The body and carbonation quite light but the linger overstays its welcome by a longshot. It lathers the mouth with a film, plastic, play-doh like phenols, buttery diacetyl plague it, unless it is the mystery ingredient? And what is beer with natural flavour added!? Couldn’t finish it. A re-rate may be warrented!(12fl/oz, 5.0%ABV, no date stamp [fresh batch], Mane Liquor, Belmont)

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 Can from Mane Liquor. Looked nice..smells like kola beer mixed with fanta and vanilla... Tastes like kola beer mixed with fanta and sweet vanilla. Crazy. Not my kinda thing at all

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - NOV 18, 2011
slightly fruity (raisons, cinnamon? and apricots) and spicy nose, murky dark copper, effervescent, light body, slightly sweet, a tad bitter aftertaste which rounds out. Nice little summer beer but nothing to write home about.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2011
[Can] Pours a golden color with a ton of dense head that looks almost like a nitro pour. Aroma of vanilla, cereal grains and mild grassy hops. Distinct taste is of vanilla extract, cocoa powder, cotton candy, light nutmeg, citrus and sweet honey. Easy to drink with a creamy palate and slick mouthfeel. I can see how some people wouldn’t like this, but I really enjoyed it. I wish I picked up more before it sold out. A perfect summer beer in my book.
