12oz bottle from Three Cellars. Pale yellow, thin head, macro look. Sweet malt aroma with lots of corn & some fruit in there. Peppery finish to go with a taste of sweet malts & corn. Goes down pretty easy, little to no bitterness. So-so.

A thin scum of a white head sits on top of a very pale yellow body. Hot dog is a smell I have never described in a beer before, but there’s always time for a first. There is also a cooked corn note, but not in the off flavor type. The taste is bread crust with some potatoes. A little bit of black pepper spice comes through in the finish. It tastes a lot better than it smells. I wanted to like this one more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Huge freaking head when poured into a snifter. Under the huge head lies a really light golden colored beer. Earthy hops, malt and corn in the aroma. The adjunct smell isn’t off putting, but it is distinct. Nevertheless, it is part of the style. The taste is sweet and grainy at first followed by a little more of the same. The hops stay back in the flavor. The flavor is clean and crisp and well balanced. A nice cream ale, really about a perfect lawnmower beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12/11/2007: Lake Louie Coon Rock Cream Ale is a very pale golden straw color (with a peach hue) and is slightly hazy. There is a controlled level of carbonation. A really small fizzy off-white head vanishes rapidly. The aroma has a mild sweetness and a touch of mango and/or passion fruit. The flavor is malty with some creamy notes and a balanced level of sweetness. It is somewhat grainy in the middle. The floral hops are quite evident in the flavor and they impart a balancing bitterness is present in the finish as well as traces tropical fruitiness. This beer is moderately light, fairly smooth, and goes down in the snap of a finger. Decent overall.
12 fl. oz. bottle. Rating #36 for this beer...

I love this style of beer and this is a good one. Pours clear golden with a nice froth. Aroma of cookies and grain. Sweet on the tongue and long in the finish (for the style anyway). Fine anytime type of beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via skyview (thanks!). Pours an hazy golden blonde with a large head that leaves lots of webby lace on the mug. Not much from the nose, just some malt and corn. Not much flavor in this either. Very grainy with some earthy hops and a dry finish. Thin body, high carbonation. A decent inoffensive session beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer was very, very...average. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but to my mind this beer was in accordance with my expectations for a cream ale without a lot of extras. It was somewhat "creamy" and sugary, but beyond that there was not a lot to distinguish it from an American lager.
The beer had a pleasant enough appearance...a pale straw color with a fairly Sprite-like head. Aroma was rather sweet, like candy sugar. And that was the primary component of the flavor as well...not a lot of hoppiness or maltiness and no "add-on" flavors like fruitiness, chocolate, toffee, coffee, etc. Mouthfeel was unremarkable. Not bad - I finished the bottle, but not something I’d be in a rush to have again.
