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.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and peach-colored with a small white head. The aroma is reminiscent of Nestlé Nestea - black tea and lemon - with a smidge of tea biscuit. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is refreshing, grainy and balanced nicely. There are notes of black tea, honey and biscuit here. Crisp, dry finish. Inoffensive. Cleanly-brewed, but boring. Bottle courtesy of Bvery!

Pretty near worthless. I don’t know why some brewers are out to make a buck producing these types of beers.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2011
On tap at Rumpus Room. Poured clear, brighter golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up fresh, mostly citrusy hoppage over nondescript pale malts.. clean, and I think the extra hops really helped. The flavor found soft pale and lesser bready malts surrounded by fresh floral and citrus hops.. again very clean, with a nice hit of bitterness on the fairly quick, smooth finish. Lighter-bodied and buttery on the palate, with a very good feel and flow to it.. moderate bitterness.. very easy drinkin’, and better than expected.

Ibrew2or3 (6881) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bonus courtesy of GhostFace. The 12oz bottle pours clear copper with gold edges and white head. The mild aroma delivers a thin mix of sweet citrus hard candy and a malt breadiness. The taste has some sweet malts running into a modest level of earthy to citrus hop bitterness and then a mild earthy tea like sensation. Nice Pale Ale like hoppiness.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a nice combination of pine and citrus hops backed nicely by a sweet cream note. Flavor has more of a cream note with notes of citrus and pine hops.

Bottle. Mostly clear orange pour with a white head. Aroma is cream soda with a touch of hops. Medium to lighter palate. Taste is cream, light hop, with a clean finish. Nice.
