Our Crème Ale is a traditional crème ale with both ale and lager yeast, this gives us the creamy smoothness of an ale with a nice dry crisp finish. The Creme Ale is great on hot summer days.

Pours light amber with a small white head. Doughy flavor, herbal/veggie hop finish. Hops are meek, enough to balance and give a light foral note to the lingering malts, clean but not all that crisp.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with André. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a quick dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of cloves, earthy spice and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly smooth, some carbonation with flavors of bread malt with a touch of allspice and herbs. Finish is slightly metallic with a malt and clove aftertaste that lingers after the finish.

Bottle from Belmont Station--Poured a clear soapy golden yellow boldy with a quickly dissipating white head. Herbal, creamy nose. Mildly metallic and rich. Bready and smooth. A good example of the style with a hoppy twist to it.

Bottle from 5000/Larry Pitonka. Poured a golden yellow color, huge honkin, persistent, humongo head, way overcarbonated from a convenience factor, yet it didn’t kill the mouthfeel or tarnish the actual experience at all. The aroma was herbal, semi-spicey hops, grains, light fruity ester notes. The flavor followed the aroma, lots of flavor and firm hops, all finishing dry and crisp, although I could have been told it was a standard american pale ale and wouldn’t have known it was a "cream ale." Thanks Andre, a nice one.

Aroma is light. Perhaps a little fruity. Pours gold with a nice white head that was long lasting. Flavor had some sweetness, fruitiness and a hoppy finish that had tasty citrus notes. It was smooth, easy to drink, but very flavorful in a basic sort of way, if that makes sense. I like it!

Thanks to SANTA.....pours a nice thick glowing yellow with a monster white head...very subtle aroma that I find appealing...the lacing was also very nice...I am not familiar with cream ales...but after this one I want to try more. This is slightly sweet and lasts a long time...I want more...thanks Santa...

I enjoy Laughing Dog (especially the Devil Dog) but this doesn’t work for me. The taste seems more blunted and seperated than creamy.

From the bottle purchased at the Sandpoint Safeway: pours a clear golden color. Had a decent foamy white head that dissipated quickly but left good lacing. Slight hoppy aroma with some malts. The hops and malts come out more noticeably in the flavor along with some citrus. A thick creamy mouth-feel and a lasting finish. I prefer Laughing Dog’s IPA but this is a good one too.
