This is a "Pre-Prohibition" Cream Ale produced with Wisconsin processed white corn. This type of beer was brewed in this area around a hundred years ago. It is moderately hopped with Fuggles, and has a Very Smooth finish.

Bottle from our good friends at Timerís Liquor in Racine: My brother put me on to this one. I owe him one! This is OK, but nothing to write home about. Nice honey in a blonde wig. The wig comes off early and the ladder on the glass ainít goíin to work for any elopemnt!. Nice color, fair aroma, cardboard finish. Not hoppy enough for my tastes. Good try, but I will leave my shekels on some other night stand. Prosit!

Extremely average looking pour. Super strong nose of caramel. Flavor of light caramel and metal. Some hops. This is kind of unusual, but not really very good.

Pours to a medium head and faint golden color. Thereís a fairly strong aroma of caramel that isnít particularly pleasant. Taste is a light to medium bitter, with the caramel scent continuing. Highly carbonated. Long, bitter finish. Seems to be pretty typical for the style.

Clear pale straw color with a very thin head. Light fruity, creamy malt aroma. Flavor is crisp and doughy malt with a light, grassy finish. Creamy yet light bodied with a good tingle of carbonation. Donít expect more than it is; this isnít a winter warmer to sip by the fire, itís a cream ale that goes down very easy and I will definitely have another.

Pours a clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is light and malty. Flavor doesnít bring a whole lot more to the table.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a pale hazy yellow color with a thin head that fades quickly. Aroma of grain, corn and faint hops. The taste is grain, corn, grassy hops. Watery and thin.

Hoppier than I expected, still a pretty mundane brew. Pretty crappy beer if I do say so.

12oz bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a bright straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma is faint, cereal. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, cereal, a little yeast, with a dry, lightly bitter finish. A pretty good cream ale.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle pours straw gold with a thin white head. Aroma is corny and grainy with a definate yeast presence. Flavor is definately more impressive than the nose let on, showing notes of apple, light florals, and an underlying earthy character. Overall body is light to moderate, creamy, and finishes lightly bitter.

Pretty cool to have 1200 ratings; albeit, it seems to be taking me longer and longer to rate. This has great head retention, and a lovely dark, hazy gold body. Looks good to me; although, I do wish that the body was a bit darker, color-wise. Anyways, Subtle cream and wheat aroma, with a tinge of corn mixed in there, as well. Wow, for a cream ale, this has all of the right aromas. There is a subtle hop aroma that balances out the sweet cream aroma. I imagine some of the sweet aroma(s) are coming from the corn that was used. The "true" corn aroma seems to be showing up more, as this beer warms. My advice: drink this cold, that is - the colder, the better. This has a wonderful texture, and just blesses my taste buds with a sweet yeast, corn, sugar, cream, and subtle hop flavor. This is exceptionally easy to drink, and for a cream ale, itís one of the best that Iíve ever tried. Way to go, Lake Louie.
