youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Draft at World of Beer, served in a snifter. Amber pour, creamy off-white head that hangs around. Aroma of malt, vanilla, some hops. Taste is like a less-sweet cream soda - caramel, a little saltiness (so, salted caramel, I suppose), slight hops bite. Kind of all over the place. Enjoyed it but probably wouldn’t pick it over any number of CCB beers.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is malt, caramel. Flavour is sugary malt sweetness, some caramel, bready notes. Meh, nothing special.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 1, 2012
Clean golden body and medium off white head. Concentrated sweetness, sticky fruits, almonds and classic appeal. Straightforward sweet ale. Nice aroma, good but standard taste. (UDRBM)

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle at UDRBM. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, some spices and hops. Flavor is bitter hops, ripe fruits, spices and a nice malty base. Decent balance, but a bit boring brew.

Palidor19 (2928) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
has a distance flavor of malt with touch of mild fruit and hint of spices. the beer is thick in the palate and has lots of character. its worth your time and money .

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
The aroma is sweet and fruity with a ginger ale quality. The appearance is orange gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a tart and bitter finish. The palate is average. I like this beer but it’s not great.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours a semi-cloudy golden orange with a white head and creamy lacing. vanilla and citrus dominate the nose. this is backed up by a slight though noticeable grassy hop element. the flavor is a little sweet with a decent bitter finish. Almost a hint of corn/grainy taste, but smooth and very drinkable. Excellent mouthfeel. creamy, one might even say velvety. A decent though very laid back beer.

Brigadier (2880) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
750 ml bottle
Thanks to the friendly person who brought this with them from Florida. Trying new Cigar City beers is always something that seldom disappoints. This particular release bills itself as a Double Cream Ale. it sort of hits that mark but personally I would have enjoyed it more if it were toned down a bit.

Aroma / Appearance - The semi-transparent caramel base shimmers with clear sweeping legs for company. Concentrated cream soda tastes as if it came directly from the fountain without being dilluted by soda water. It is mellow and pretty well balanced.

Flavor / Palate - Polished bronze pennies, cream soda, and malt hit the palate with in a chewy rush. Dry and sweet it goes down far too smoothly for a beer that presumably is 8%+ ABV. I might not feel great if I drank a whole bottle by myself but it would not keep me from trying.

Bottle thanks to MarkWise - shared with Yanick. Pours golden orange with white head. Nose/taste of creamy malt, light bread, peach and sweet malt. Dryish peach finish. Medium body.
