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.

This is why I like micro brewers: they have the balls to experiment with things. Im not rating this real high because I find it overall mediocre. But I give the brewer great credit for trying different things. When Miller or Bud even attempts to do anything even slightly different, they put a different label on it to hide their name (like Millers "Plank road brewery" B.,S.) Cowards. Like putting Alan Smithy as the director of your film. for shame!!!! Im not a big cream ale fan. But adding a bunch of hops to an otherwise dry, flat, flavorless cream ale is actually a good idea, IF you ask me! Corny, creamy aroma, average yellow pour, pussy wimp head, dry/quick finish flavor with a decent hop aftertaste.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is grains, sweet and perfume. Taste is sweet, grains, a little spice, yeast with minimal bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good tasting sessionable beer. Overall above average cream ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eh, hop aroma is there and it is nice, but the taste is just not there. A mildly sweet ale that has a weird aftertaste. Bought from total wine and more in Viera, FL.

Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has lemon citrus with light corn. It has a light body with crisp texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with an easy, slightly dry finish.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Poured into tulip at home. Sort of a hazy golden yellow with one finger white head. Head gone in 30 seconds and very little lacing. Aroma of cereal, light pine, and other grains. The taste was mild with cereal, wheat bread, pine, and a malty creaminess. Refreshing and light. Smooth mouth, creamy finish. Not bad.

Pours hazy straw color with very little head. Aromas are grain, caramel, and yeast. Very smooth lager-like flavor without much bitterness despite the supposed hop infusion. Pleasant enough for what it is.

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2013
12oz bottle bought at Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay, consumed en route to the UP. Another thirst-quenching, less than creamy cream ale that tastes like an inoffensive mild brewpub APA, lacking in character but still one step up from a sweet US lager.

Light amber. hay, floral aromas. Medium body, smooth silky palate. Moderate hops, crisp and dry. Unexciting yet drinkable brew and very forgettable.
