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!

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 Bottle... Clear, copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Rich, malty aroma of IBC cream soda with a hint of spice and toffee. Well-balanced flavor. Tastes a bit like IBC cream soda without any cloying sweetness... bigtime vanilla in both the nose and flavor. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Malty, then lightly bitter finish. Rich, but refreshing. Iím a fan.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium and clear copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, nuts, and light vanilla. Thinner body. Hard one to figure out.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a copper appearance with a decent size head. Actually one of the better cream ales that I have tasted.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
A cream ale with some attitude, a definite fruitiness, though the finish is a bit odd. Sweetish with creamy orangey colour and good foamy ice cream head.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Pours a clear, light amber with a thin, bubby, white head. No retention or lacing. Some honey and touch of apple cider vinegar in the nose. Taste is sweet, grainy, slight oatmeal in the body. Thin, watery.

DrSilverworm (9092) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2011
12oz can. I had no idea going in what kind of beer this was, but I assumed it was a cream ale judging by "cervesa crema". Hazy orange color, minimal head, mild lacing. What is this aroma? Raisin? ... Totally raisin. Dead on raisin. Sounds weird, but I actually like it. Some sweet taste. Very interesting.

Deep amber pour. Lots of vanilla and a bit of soft malt character as well. Fairly sweet up front, but there is a touch of decent dryness though on the finish as well. Okay - but not great. Soda-ish.

Pour on tap at Nessun Dorma, dark copper red with fluffy white head, aroma has a surprising cream aroma, a sweet lactose sugar, toffee, nuts, grainy notes, hints of slight floral notes. Taste is sweet cream and lactose, some dark sugars with caramel, toffee, slight earth, nuts and almonds, touch of grassy, finishing sweet, slightly dry.
