8-18-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to ditmier
Semi cloudy orangish yellow with a thin ff-white head. Smell is sugary sweet and honey and flowers. Flavor is sweet and juice like. High carbonation. It just reminds me of a carbonated juice. Not bad, just not really my thing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled 10/21/2008. This Cream Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet with a touch of floral hops. A medium bodied cream ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. It has the kind of yeasty creamy mouthfeel. This is a very nicely done cream ale. Best cream ale I have had in long time. Light and refreshing. Crisp and clean. Good summer beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I don’t know why decided to try this, because it was there. The cream is like alcohol, and not beneficially.

Bottle... Poured a vibrant yellow that was slightly hazy and a thin white head. Aroma was insanely tart and sweet, similar to a Sour Ale. Some grain and bread like yeast flavors and some hops for a mild bitterness. Finished kind of floral and candy-like.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale yellow pour with thin white head. Floral tart aroma. Bready taste dominated by extremely tangy and sour bitter finish. Good carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. I wonder if something is wrong with this batch?

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Mineral character is present along with earthy, and floral hops in the nose. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a low white large bubbled head that recedes rapidly to a thin partial cover with a bit of lacing. Husky and grainy and overly mineral flavour up front with floral character in the aftertaste. Bitterness is quite strong and very sharp and tangy. Other than a light sweetness there is little malt character. Very dry, astringent and puckering with fair carbonation. Not sure if I just got a bad bottle but this really isn’t working for me. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Bottleworks, Aug-08).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in trade from ditmier. Thanks!!Pours a rich, hazy light orange color with a short lived white head. Smell is quite chalky, and lightly malty and very earthy. Taste is moderately sweet and dry at the same time, with some earthy and chalky flavors. Kind of a crisp and tart lemony bite at the end along with a slightly bubbly carbonation to it. Medium bodied. Pretty tasty, and better than the average cream ale for sure.
