THOUGHTS: Great for a so-called cream ale, but not really my glass of beer. It needed a little more balance. It got a little bit cloying by the end. It was sort of like a very good malt liquor — nice, but it’s still malt liquor. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark, golden yellow to light copper with an average to large, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left barely fair lacing. The aroma had moderate white bread, grain, straw and light malts; light to moderate floral and perfume hops; and slight honey. The initial flavor was heavily sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly bitter. There was honey, white bread, perfume and floral hops, hints of citrus, some grain and a little cereal. The medium body was a bit syrupy and sticky on the lips with tingly carbonation and a slightly astringent and ever so slightly metallic finish.

Poured a light honey color with a large white head. Aroma is slightly spicey with some skunky notes. Some corn and light fruit as well. Taste is very smooth at first with some creamy malty flavors. The taste kinda takes a turn for the worst though, with alcohol, cloves, and skunky flavors. Some hops help balance out the sweetness, but it is a little strange with the creamy palate. Some alcohol noticeable in the finish. Overall interesting, but not great.

Enjoyable if not great. Note sure I really want or need a 7% beer in this style but it does add some heft, which can add some balance to heavier foods. I drank it with indian food and it went pretty well. Also, a decent value compared to other big bottle prices these days.

This is actually quite enjoyable and an interesting style that I have not seen often. very smooth. I don’t like everything about it, but enough of it to rate it respectably.

From notes. First reviewed 11/5/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. My pour is a pure transparent golden yellow with a relaxed white cap. Not much lace, but the head retains pretty well. The aroma is relatively soft. Honey biscuit malt, a bit of clover and spice, some corn and vegetable notes as well. The flavor is more of the same. Some honey biscuity malt, then a lot of smooth processed corn and a lightly floral end. Slightly metallic and a light hay and grassy hop presence at the end. The body is on the light side. Very clean and simple with a light creamy carbonation. I wouldn’t drink this again.

From the bottle, pours a clear greenish gold with a thin white bubbly head. Smells like a beer, malty and caramel. Taste is thick and of malt syrup, caramel, a hint of bitters, slightly drying toward the end. This is a fine, above average, quaffable beer.

This beer pours a golden yellow with little to no head. Not as flavorful as I would have hoped but still a very good beer. At 7% a couple 22oz. bottles will have you feeling like Davy Jones himself in no time

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 22oz bomber into tulip Note: Bought this for my wife, who likes lagers, but is starting to enjoy a bit more flavor in her beers. This fits the bill perfectly. -Aroma is very slight. Nothing strong stands out. A bit of citrus. A little bit of yeast. -Appearance is nice. Pour left only a little head on top that went away very quickly. Golden color with a tiny layer of head that remains just around the edges of the glass. -Flavor is slightly bitter with a bit of sweet up front. A bit of alcohol becomes noticeable upon drinking a bit more. -Mouth feel is smooth with noticeable bubbles. Coates the mouth more than a lager would. -Overall an interesting beer that is better than most lagers or pilsner. It was well worth the try and will make a repeat appearance in my fridge.
