Tasted at Buffalo Brewfest: This deserves FAR better ratings then what you guys are giving it. It’s a cream ale not an imperial stout. What are you expeciting? I thought this was quite good. Very refreshing and flavorful.

Pours clear, lots of carb. Light caramel and fruit in the aroma. Modest bitter and some sweet fruity and toasted malts. Dry and dull. I’m not much of a cream ale fan, but this looked and tasted like a boring pale lager. It is worth a re-rate.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 served on tap. Poured a golden amber with a small white head that clings as a lace ring. Meduim carbonation. Distinct malt aromas mingle with some sharp hop fragrence. Starts with a nice creamy mouth feel where the the malts depart a layerd nutty-fruit tone..finish is medium with a slightly dry palate and a malty aftertaste...************************************* 2005.Bottled version...hazey look...musty sour yeast smell... and a very "soapy" taste coming from a yeasty mustiness that underluies it...poor filtering? bad yeast? handling spoilage? this beer was not good.

OK pour and foam. Was a bit sweet, no outstanding flavour.OK on the tongue. Found it dried the mouth and felt was bits of yeast aftertaste. Fine for a summer day.

Copper color with some white head. The nose is sweet with malt and some fruit. The fruitiness carries into the body with some sweet malt and the front moving into a fairly appetizing yet timid bitterness throughout. Not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2005 TFOB 2005 Golden yellow, small white head. Sweet grain and muted hops in the aroma. Flavour is similarly sweet, mild notes of fruitiness and a moderate bitterness with hints of floral hops. Average palate. 5-6/3/6/3/12-14<P>TFOB 2003 Dark yellow, bit of hops and malt in the aroma. Decent head on it. Was an enjoyable beer, had it shortly after a Mort Subite though so it might have skewed it a bit. 4/3/6/3/14

Not a bad example of the cream ale style. Balanced and nuanced. I was too drunk to make an accurate account, so I'll rerate later.

Light gold in colour. Aroma of peaches and maybe some grapefruit. Flavour is syrupy and some malt bitterness. Finishes smooth and quick.
