Nitrogen is what distinguishes McAuslan Cream Ale from the crowd. Draft beer is usually pressurized with carbon dioxide. The addition of nitrogen to the mixture helps create a thicker, longer-lasting head. The nitrogen also helps smooth away some of the characteristic carbon dioxide bite often associated with North American drafts. Our Cream Ale, known as McAuslan Smooth Ale in the US, has a beautiful long-lasting head and a full-bodied silky texture that make it a unique taste experience.

On tap at ’C’est What’ in Toronto. Labelled ’St. Ambroise Cream Ale’. Fruity, dark and sharp all in one. Very very fine beer.

En fût chez Baptiste. La bière est bien mousseuse, crémeuse et la tempête qui s’agite dans mon verre est très agréable à regarder. Le diacétyle omniprésent dans les bières de la brasserie est encore présent ici. Ça sent le beurre et l’orge malté. Même le sirop de fraise artificiel. Au goût c’est moins pire, vu que ça ne goûte rien. Du sucre et un sirop simple. Aucun avant-goût ni arrière-goût. Comme c’est excitant...

Scopey (11356) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Keg at Henry House, Halifax. It pours clear amber with a thick, creamy white head. The nose is soft, bready, cereal, toasty grain, creaminess and mini milk ice lolly. The taste is smooth, creamy, toasty grain, cereal, bready malts, grassy bitterness and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Smooth, well-rounded cream ale.

(Déguster sur place) Apparence: D?une couleur dorée translucide, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une durée éternelle (cream ale). Effervescence quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps léger. Au goût, c’est des notes de malt frais. Finale de courte durée, avec pratiquement aucune effervescence.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 On tap at the only cafe. Clear light brown body with the beautiful foamy thick head which is known of the style. Subtle hop aromas with mainly a cereal bready nose, some citrus- orange zest. An American interpretation for sure with a great hop profile. nice sweetness and citrus on the palate.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a golden color with a generous white creamy head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy and grassy with a hint of citrus. Taste is a grassy and citrus hop bitterness with a caramel grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Pretty good cream ale.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery terrace as part of a 12$ tasting set. Wonderfully clear honey amber with a great creamy foamy beige head that lingers forever. Great sweet malty aroma that smells like a brewday - fantastic. Creamy full body with a velvety mouthfeel. Biscuit, graham, sweet nutty malts. A perfect creamy beer.
