3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared at Proof. This was a strange one. I don’t like cream ales so much - but this ended up tasting far different than any I’d had. I just have sparse notes: vinegar - may be bad - but good to me - tangy and tart - citrus - bite to it (7.0).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good sized bright white head of fine bubbles. Light and citrusy aroma with some pineapple, sweet tarts and a hint of tartness. Not really what I had expected for this brew. But then again, I think that this one has been sitting in my fridge for an eternity. Clear gold in color. Hmm, definately a bit of funk going on in there. Light sourness and tartness, some spices (ginger) and more fruit. Light and crisp and makes the mouth salivate. An interesting and unexpected flavored brew.

9/3/10. Thanks, jtclockwork! Sour, vinegary aroma with light corn and malt. The flavor is like a very light sour with a hint of malt backing... Is this a mistake? Either way, it’s pretty nice for a cream ale!

This is the best cream ale I have ever had. Nice light color. Sweet citrus flavor. Almost like a really light saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is mildly musty, light berry-like hop notes, mild doughy yeast, freshly milled grain. Flavor reminiscent of light fluffy fresh bread, some honeyish notes and mild herbal hops lingering with very light bitterness in the finish, which is quite dry and very clean. Great palate is very smooth No distinct element that stands out, except for possibly the light tang of NW noble-like hops, as the sum of its parts this beer is a beautiful composition - sunny and mildly sweet.

Cloudy yellow in color with white foamy head... Slightly sour creamy aroma... Flavor is slightly off and sour... May have gone too long in bottle... Creamy nutty and grainy flavor... Not the best

Bottle from Brewforia. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is dusty/herby. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt with slight nuttiness and some bitterness. Dry it is. Crisp maybe. Not at all bad.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty slightly tart flavor with a quick finish.
