Bottle - Pour was a nice golden color with a medium head. Aroma is lacking. Not picking up much but the palate is pretty nice. Nice clear ale. Would drink again

It poured a clear straw color with one inch white head that stayed a good half minute. There isn’t much lacing at all, and barely any carbonation was seen rising. The smell was a mixture of corn, wheat, barley and some malts. The taste was sweet balanced between the corn, wheat, barley and malts. The palate was light with a smooth carbonation. Overall, this is good for the style and good for me.

Cream Ale is one of the best tasting cheap beers I have ever had. I am surprised this isnt more popular with the college group as it is cheap and you can drink a lot.

Serving: 12 oz can from a 30 pack. It pours a light gold with a solid white head. The nose is a little sweet with slight vegetal notes. The flavor is light dme, medium stale vegetal, an off bitterness and a slight metallic note. Light body but smooth on the tongue. Still not very good.

24 oz can to pint. Looks fine; a transparent gold with white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy. Tastes like it smells with a sweet backbone. Average on the palate with a bottery finish. Better than I expected.

Years ago, this was my introduction to the cream ale style. Thick on the palate and slightly oily. Sort of buttery and bland on the tongue with little aroma.

12 ounce stubby bottle so old sch
ool. Poor has a lighter golden color and a thin cap of white fizz. Aroma has sweet grain, light hops, and some flowers. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has a light malted base, some sweetness, the slightest hops, and an interesting creamy contrast. Takes me back to the swilling days, cheap, and nostalgic.

Tap. Pours clear light amber with a medium fizzy white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel. Flavor is about the same, light to medium sweet with a crisp finish. Not so terrible as a beer to wash down buffalo wings.

The only part of this beer worth redeeming is the classic, sign painter can and logo style, which really make the beer seem better than it is. I’m a sucker for this design style though, so I really must admit enjoying that aspect of the beer. Other than that, it’s swill.
