Cigar City Batch #69 Double Cream Ale has a big flavor that goes well with strong and spicy foods. Nice sweet aroma coming off a copper-amber pour with a nice head. Taste is malty with a certain cloying sweetness to it and a bit of a hop bite at the end. The higher ABV is not very noticeable. The sweetness lingers on the palate longer than I prefer it. Batch #69 is a good brew just not a standout.

S_Side_Smitty (457) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours copper-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is faint fruit and bread. Taste is initially orange & tangerine followed by the lactose creaminess, mild malts and faint spiciness.

Lightly hazy amber beer, good off white head. Palate is light and a little crispy. Semi dry. Light bretty - seltzer minerals. Tangerine and a little lactose. Whisper of caramel and candied fruits. Finishes semi dry. Nice flavour profile.

One2remeber (145) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Draft. At room temp. Acetaldehyde burn, big green apple. Pear, soft fruit. Sugary sweet, malt bomb, barley wine mouthful without the complexity nor hops.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
roma is sweet malt, tropical fruits, orange and citrus. The taste like the aroma is fruity and malty up front with a very nice citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. Overall, this is not your daddy’s cream ale. Once again, another solid beer from Cigar City.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Exactly as you would expect a double cream ale to taste. Bad style choice was bad. Doughy cereal malts and heavy candy sugar sweetness. dull listless hops that hate their lives.

Bottle courtesy of randomgarbage’s rotbox @ randomgarbage’s wedding reception @ Iowa CIty. Pours a hazy orange/golden appearance with a thin brown head. Somewhat sugar, light caramel, dull hoppy, bready nose. A little boozy, light toasted malty, a touch caramel/butterscotch, herbal flavor. Probably been in the rotbox too long but decent.
