2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Picked up to try a cream ale. Poured a clear light gold color. Very small head. Aroma of malt and barley. This seems to be like a typical macro pale lager, but has some flavor. It is also less expensive. I picked up a big can for around $1. It is good for what they are trying to do. But not in my favorite category.

This beer subtly smells like a lager (that yeasty smell of the huge American breweries), but hints of vanilla and malt; furthermore, when poured into a pilsner glass, you can see how bubbly and yellow this beer is, and the prominent white head adds to the aesthetic. The taste is mildly sour yet slightly sweet, but the light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and abrupt finish combine interestingly.

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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
