COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the first trial of a Cream Ale that has an infusion of hops added to it in the lagering stage. We are trying to create a beer where the aroma and flavor are very hop forward, yet the finish remains smooth and non-bitter.

tmoreau (2562) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint taster glass showing a clear, orangy gold color, a rather persistent, soft white, bubbles & cream head, and an etched-like design of lacing on the glass. The aroma was light grain & malt, slight hints of orangy citrus, floral, and pine, but all were over shadowed by some mineral and metallic scent. The flavor offered a pleasant, non-aggressive, equally resiny & citrusy, moderate hop bitterness, and soft malt. Light to medium bodied, decently carbonated, with some dryness to the finish. The flavor was more favorable than the nose, but the brew in general, was fairly sessionable.

headcase (1) - Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013 does not count
From tap. Lovely idea, always wanting to find cramflow ales in the US. Clear, dark and sweet, but lacking the obvious.....a cream head. Served with a tiny regular layer of bubbles that soon dissipated. Hoppy, a little...drinkable, for sure....but generally NOT what is says on the label. Disappointing.

TenMen (12) - Ames, Iowa, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pretty, clear, fizzy golden cream ale with a head that disappears quickly. Aroma of light malt extract, oddly enough. Thin, kinda refreshing, with a slightly sour/bitter aftertaste. I detect almost no hop presence, despite the labeling; maybe there was one early addition for that hint of bitterness. Not bad for a standard cream ale, but not what I was hoping for.

ExpendableHero (764) - Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Golden brew with a thin, white head. Aromas of some grassy hops, and assorted plants. Tastes of biscuit, grassy/earthy hops, some floral notes, all nicely balanced by creamy malts. Mouth feel is indeed quite creamy, ends on a bittersweet hop note. Very easy to drink, interesting, and enjoyable.

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light gold in color with a thin white head. Mild floral hop aroma. Grainy in taste with a touch of hops. Smooth creamy mouthfeel for sure. No bitterness to speak of IMHO. A strang hybrid and the name does fit.

Sample from bottle at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL from variety pack. Not bad.

Jakebra hooked me up with this one. 12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a bit of a lasting head. Metallic aroma. Flavor of metal and wet cardboard. Yeah, oxidized as hell. Bummer.
