Small-bubbled head atop a dark orange ale. Not a lot of aroma but flavour is quite distinctly of brown sugar and some malt. Not especially creamy but smooth enough and no off flavours. Lacks hops but that’s about par for the style.

Tap at Maxwell’s Plum. Dark amber colour. Sweetish, brown sugar aroma, dark amber colour, thin white head. Very NZish, fruity yeast and a heavy sweet maltiness. Light caramel in the finish.

Draft @ Maxwell’s Plum. Dark amber brown body with a small white head. Was expecting something more golden and actually asked the server if this was the right beer! Muted malt, and caramel in the aroma. Sweet caramelly flavour and burnt caramelized sugar beneath. Something else in the sugar family defies interpretation. Quaffable, but fairly sweet. Average palate. First beer of my birthday this year!

Backdraft (10) - Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 26, 2005
Overall, a pretty good beer. Doesn’t taste or look like a cream ale. Goes down smooth with a sudden rich mildly bitter aftertaste of caramel / molasses. In my opinion, much better than the rest of the Sleeman beers.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Clear, bright amber hue, big, but quickly crumbling cream-toned head, fiercely active, twisting down to nothing in an instant... Aroma: quiet, soft, but sweet, fruity, malty, scant hops, if any... Taste: starts smooth on entering the mouth, but becomes flinty and bland, hollow, yielding small fruity flavors, but then jump off the palate immediately. While it lasts, it’s a decent enough treat, but wholly forgettable. For those with low expectations only.

Nice beer from draft. Glad that Sleeman kept this one around. No real head to speak of, but nice rich colour, and clean finish. Great deal with the growler from the brewery.

a decent beer that looks and tastes more like a red or amber ale than a cream ale - very little head. good aftertaste.

Pours a dark brown with a bubbly and rapidly diminishing head. Caramel malt aroma. Roasted malt taste with some hop bitterness.

Quite a dark cream ale, nice flavor, some molasses and carmel, one of the better maritime beers for me.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Aroma: strong and spicy. Palate: watery and sourish. Appearance: dark as maple syrup. Flavor: Quite flavorful for a cream ale. Overall: Good, but a little strange with a potent molasses flavor. I don't general like cream ales but this one was pleasant.
