2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the better cream ales out there. Blonde colored with perfect creamy cover. Easy malt aroma and clean grain bill. Crisp. Pleasant. Mildly grainy and light malting in flavor with perhaps some corn. Some tannic graininess on the end note. An easy drinking, creamy-bodied brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at the brewery, under nitrogen. I think this is the first cream ale I’ve had under nitro - pretty nice. Very faint malt aroma, pilsner, with just a hint of mild fruity hop character. Light golden yellow clear with creamy white lacing head. Light watery body with a creamy mouthfeel and smooth carbonation. A very mild ale with a nice sweet pils flavor. Maybe because of the nitro, but it also seems a tad salty. Mild hop bitterness in the finish with creamy smooth after.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the brewpub. Fairly unimpressive beer. Golden body, small white head. Nothing to smell. Inoffensive but nondescript flavor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at brew pub. Pours hazy golden in color with a white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Minimal aroma of citrus, light grains and bread. Tastes is very smooth and creamy. Flavors of citrus, honey, yeasty bready notes. Nice carbonation and body but not much to it.

Draft, Bube’s. (This wasn’t labeled as Honey Cream Ale and the ABV was quite a bit different; it appears that it warrants a separate entry.) Pours a clear, light golden color; creamy white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Light, citrus and mineral notes in the aroma; clean, crisp. Medium mouthfeel: simple sugar and citrus, with a mild honey-based, creamy viscosity; a nice toasty cereal note; flawless and straightforward. Medium, sugar and toasty grain in the finish; a mild minerally bitterness throughout.
