3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Perhaps the darkest cream ale Iíve encountered. Copper hue with aroma of bready malt spice, hopcit, with lemon as the primary citrus element. Tastes full-vodied for a cream or summer ale, with hints of bready malt, lemongrass, hops, spice (black pepper), and fruit. Nice complexity and wonderful balance. I bought a bottle of this at State Line in Elkton, MD, and I hope they have more when I return this weekend. God, Itís great to have relatives around the DE/MD border!!

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear ruby/amber pour with light off-white head. Light and fruity aroma that was quite sweet... had some berries in there. Very silky smooth on the palate with a little misplaced residual sweetness on the finish. Sweet berries in the flavor with some light spices toward the back. Quite well-balanced, but not very powerful on any front. Well-crafted for the style, but Iím not too keen on this style... this wonít fall into my regular rotation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin tan head. The mild aroma is malts, grains and caramel with a estery-ness that makes it seem like lager yeast notes in the background. The taste begins sweet with malts, a sense of corn and caramel. It then moves towards sugary sweet malts and mild floral hops by midway. It ends with a lingering mixture of caramel, again mild ester notes seeming like a lager yeast quality, mild cherry and red apple candy. It is a bit on the sweet side.

Can. Pours a nice clear amber with a creamy eggshell head. Aroma is very sweet, buttery toffee and hints of chocolate. The flavour profile is not as sweet as the aroma, and instead is far more toasty and a little nutty (hazelnuts). Malt is the message here, with just a kiss of hops in the finish to dry things out a bit. I was very surprised with this little number, and would definitely add this to my "summer session" list. Perhaps the most flavourful cream ale Iíve had.
