COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This simple and effective Cream Ale focuses on its light toffee nature and leafy hop touch to provide a quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the dark amber.
-The body is cushy but remains well dried out to remain quaffable.
-Malts are lightly biscuit throughout.
-Caramelized cereals adopt toffee angles once in a while.

On tap at Rogue Ales Public House, SF.

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!!

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2005
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.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Amber/bronze beer with an off-white head. Low aroma - light malt. Creamy mouthfeel. Some vanilla, wheat, malt flavors with toasted bread. Lighter bodied. Lingering wheat/toasted malt. Easy drinking.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2009
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.

12oz bottle, copper, off-white head. aroma, fruity, light grainy nose, malty, notes of bready malts and vanilla. flavors, sweet creamy mouthfeel, dark fruits, some spices; clove? , vanila, light fruit and hops bitterness. As it warmed up, the beer gained a hard to finish astringent aspect.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a mostly clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Sweet and grainy, with some fruit. Somewhat odd smelling. Medium bodied and creamy, cream and caramel. A little bit sweet and toasty. Sweet finish with a bit of cereal and grains and some fruit leather.

DuffMan (6547) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2010
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.

Yellow and light unclear. White head, mostly lasting. Hoppy aroma, citrus, crisp, sweet fruit. Flavor is sweet, light bitter finish, dry, watery texture.
