Orange pour. Light head. Aroma is all cedar with a light malty note. Flavor is cedar and more cedar. I like cedar, otherwise I wouldn’t enjoy this beer.

On tap at Brass Tap courtesy of THE Gillard. Thanks Ryan. It pours up deep gold with white head. The aroma is spicy wood at first and as it warms a pepperiness grows and is supported by notes of sweet malts and smooth sweet corn. The taste is thick and chewy bringing up smooth blended grains, malt infused sweet creamed corn and then mildly spicy cedar. It seems to get a bit too spicy and almost peppery after half a pint.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Même base que #69 avec un peu plus d’épice et de boisé venant du cèdre qui se marie vraiment bien aux bières plus houblonnées. Intéressant traitement surtout avec le douceur crémeuse de cette bière.

Another handbottle thanks big time to Ibrew2or3. Pours a cloudy light brown color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is massive cedar and light caramel. The flavor is dominated by a aggressive hot cedar, some sweet biscuit and smooth cream ale flavors. Enjoyable.

Had at RBWG 2010. Slightly corny but otherwise hoppy, woody, and really good. I was surprised!

Growler from the brewery. Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours cream ale yellow-orange with an off-white head. Nose is cedar, bread, malt, and peppery spices. Flavor is similar with cedar dominating and the peppery spiciness close behind. Finish has the cedar taking away the harshness of the cream ale’s normal finish. Medium bodied and very enjoyable- along with the peach, this is the best of the cream ale treatments. For a cream ale: awesome.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Growler, courtesy jdubfl. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a swirly, off-white surface film. Minimal, wet spots of lacing dot the glass. The nose explodes with an aggressive waft of woody, oily, peppery cedar, dominating the underlying and secondary notes of clean, creamy corn grain. Flavors follow suit, with the grainy, corny, bready malt base again being manhandled by intense, oily cedar and dominant, spicy wood notes. Medium bodied, with a lively carbonation, the palate starts out round but finishes with an acute, drying edge. Fans of cedar will adore this, but I found it to be a bit aggressive for this base style.

I think JDub brought this to the RBWG. Dark orange pour. Huge cedar aroma, spice and overwhelming. Spicy cedar, creamy malt and slight touches of citrus. Awesome.
