2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a light apple juice color with a foamy white head.
Smells like apple juice mixed with vanilla icing.
Cream ales just aren’t my thing I guess. It is like drinking vanilla/malt/apple flavored soda.
Non beer drinkers will like it

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is sweet, ripe apples. Taste is really sticky sweet... not as much as a cider, but still a bit too much. This is mainly apple with a very mild bread undertone. Palate is dry and sweet, a bit too sticky for my taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with CaptainCougar (thanks!). Poured a lightly hazy and orange color wtih an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of apples, grainy, and a little musty. Tastes of pretty much the same. The apples where there, but not really in a good way. Thin body on the highly carbonated side.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours copper with almost no head to speak of. Aroma is somewhat skunky and a bit yeasty, though there are some apple tones in there as well...a bit confusing! Flavor is somewhat odd and flat up front with some malt and corn flavors, with a dose of sweet apple in the middle, and then some bitter notes at the end...again, very confusing. Somewhat cider-like, somewhat beer-like, this one just doesn*t want to fit any profile. Palate is pretty mundane, though I*m not buying that this is a cream ale (though I know it says so on the bottle)...one is enough on this brew...

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Bottle shared with John. 5K backlog. Pours semi-cloudy gold. No head. Nose and taste of cheap apple cider, McIntosh, light cream, apple sauce and ripe banana peel. Not very good. Lighter than medium body.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I liked the looks of this brew - clear copper body with creamy ecru head - but after that it fell apart for me. It has a soft malty aroma with apples that don’t seem quite ripe. The flavor begins with a bready malt, but is soon overrun by a soured apple flavor that seems off. Mildly sastringent finish that cries out for a mouthwash. I’ve enjoyed this brewery’s other offerings, but this doesn’t seem quite right.

Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small white head that produces some lacing. The aroma was tart, fruity, citric and a bit yeasty. The flavor was tart, tangy and bitter with notes of lemon, perfume and bread. The finish was long, bitter, tart and citric. Medium body. Uninspired.

Found this cider beer comba at the Ba Runi. Smells a little like apple. Taste is of course apple cider with more apple than I expected. Lager beer fer sure in the background. Looks like pale lager. Borders on sweet, a little more sweetness than I expected for a cider like beer. I’m used to the dry ciders, now. Decent co2. Not bitter to say the least. Yes, just simply an apple falvored beer, not many of those out there. Finish is just plain apple lager even tho it says cream ale on the label.
