I had this at Asheville Brew & View as a third choice (the other two beers taking the night off). It wasn’t exactly the best cream ale I’ve ever had, but it wasn’t half bad. It had a well presented vanilla taste to it. Try Wexford or Genesee instead, if you have the chance.

Pours a very crisp clear pale color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is fruity, malty, crisp, hay, corn. Taste is sweet and thin, corn, hay, and malt. Very clean beer, slightly more favorable than most of the style, not bad.

Jaune paille, peu mousseuse, peu effervescente. Nez minéral, avec des notes peu convaincantes de maïs. Ça ressemble à une Sleeman Cream Ale. C’est bien (puisque la Sleeman a déjà gagné des prix dans sa catégorie), mais rien ne la laisse se démarquer outre sa canette relativement jolie. Ce produit demeure une bière de soif avec un branding qui laisse croire à de plus fortes aspirations.

Can thanks to hot pat. Pale, hazy yellow with a bubbly, white head. Sweet fruit and hay. Light, fruity and very sessionable.

Slightly fruity smell, very pale appearance, taste is more like a cheap beer than the cream ale I expected, slight artificial creaminess in there...very fake tasting, very buttery, bleh,

I am a little perplexed at the low ratings for this beer. For the style I think it is spot on. Light grainy aroma. Crisp grainy malt on the front of the palate gives way to a slightly buttery diacetyl finish. Light bodied. It may not be a double IPA or imperial whatever but this is a good cream ale for sure.

Draft at Asheville taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Not much on the nose. Creamy on the tongue. Not much flavor but that’s never been the point with this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Can from Ri Ra, Charlotte, 12/2/14
Aroma: The nose is light and fairly sweet, with corn, bread, malt, and a hint of spice
Appearance: It pours a clody golden color with small ring of white head and light lacing
Flavor: The taste is along the same line, mostly sweet, corn and bread/malt, lightly bitter
Palate: The body is medium, slightly cloying, with a soft carbonation, and a clean finish
This isn’t a bad cream ale at all. The sweetness feels a touch on the artificial side, but otherwise, it is pretty tasty.

Corn comes through. Golden taste like a American no head boring flavor. Not anything I would get decent mouthfeel.
