No doubt that this is a quality beer. Unfortunately the hops were too overwhelming. I should have paid more attention. Cream Ale is its own style, and hops in this much quantity are reserved for IPA’s. Glad I tried it. Will not buy again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Second Bell City brew review of the night. Pours a clean rich amber colour with a creamy beige head, good retention and creamy lacing. Fruity aromas with nice malts. Eventually, lots of butterscotch come out. Mild caramel flavours with some decent light hops to balance things. Thankfully not as rich as their Lenoir Belgian Ale. Pretty drinkable actually.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from LCBO. C0316 - canned March 2016? Pours clear dark amber, almost coppery, with a fine light beige head. The aroma is rather nice: nutty and caramelly, grainy, plus stone fruits and toffee, herbal and flowery hops. Tastes toffee and caramelly sweet with earthy, leafy, herbal bitterness. Very dry finish to go with that, almost like black tea. Thin but crisp carbonation, mediumish body. Pretty unusual for a Cream Ale - as far as my experience with the style thus far is concerned. I quite like it.

Amber slight haze. Toffee smell, bread. Tastes very bready, slight sweet and creamy palate, pleasing bitterness in finish, nice after raking leaves.

Mouthfeel is a little bit dry. Has a bit of a rusty like finish. Average carbonation. Medium retention. Fairly average cream ale.

Pours a rich amber, with a large foamy head. Aroma has notes of toasted malt, caramel, vanilla, toffee, and honey. Tasting notes include fiery malts, toffee, fruity esters, hoppy finish with a CO2 bite. Nice brew!

can. Poured clear dark amber with a creamy tan head. Rich malty aroma is so inviting. Medium body with soft carbonation, almost buttery mouthfeel with a bite at the end. Sweet caramel malt, slightly oaky, has an earthy raw grainy feel. peppery hop finish. Really nice savory brew.
