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!

(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by a small and swiftly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/toffee, vanilla, evoking candy corns. Taste is the same, with a mild astringency in the finish. Watery light-medium body with a light acidity.

Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, peach and tangerine, though a bit dusty. Sweet and fruity flavour, easy drinking

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Aroma of fruit and vanilla? Deep amber color with ruby hilites; frothy white head that tried to lace on the rapid way to oblivion. Starts with vanilla. Very creamy. Then stone fruit. Malt and hop seem quite balanced, but the vanilla spice note tends to dominate.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a thin and quickly vanishing off-white head. S: Nice (lightly) roasted malt aromas combined with a hint of caramel. There’s also a fair amount of diacetyl in there, lending a buttery, almost creamy aroma. T: Again, a lot of caramel and toasted, biscuit malts. Not much in the way of hop flavor or bitterness, but I like the sweetness this beer has, which manages to be quite balanced. M: The body is a bit on the light side, but still good, and the carbonation is moderate. D: I can’t say I’ve had too many cream ales, but I found this one to be very enjoyable. A nice low alcohol beer with good flavors and a light-medium body.

rlgk (10254) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. Golden color, white head. Fruity sweetish aroma with notes of pear and melon. Malty wheat flavor, fruity and spicy notes. A bit on the boring side...

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
A hazed reddish amber ale with a thick creamy light moka head. A rather smooth aroma of vanilla cream and light peated notes. In mouth, a smooth and lightly cloying malt, vanilla/Bailey’s overtones, light cardboard....not my thing.

BeerandBlues2 (9586) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, vanilla notes, and no hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dates and vanilla with faint hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Amber pour with a foamy, mostly white head. Aroma is faint and has some malty, honey notes. Flavor is certainly creamy, a bit sweet, and has a flavor of honey mixed with an artificial sweetener. Interesting if not a bit odd.
