COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

gregorymconway (140) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
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. A personal dislike for the style due to the watery nature is paired well with a nice sweetness on the head and sweet citrus on the palate. A beer in one of my least favorite styles is quite enjoyable, another solid offering by the brewery.

reebtogi (4386) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
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 (2344) - 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.

mjakopa (220) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark yellow with a creamy head that lingers. Taste is light and unobtrusive. Fruity with hints of hops and short dry aftertaste. A drinkable beer very similar to the pale ale.

Bière cuivrée, inerte, crémeuse au possible. L’onctuosité en bouche est incroyable. Ce corps «joufflu» supporte bien l’amertume de la bière. Le pétillement est très faible (selon ce que le style impose), Un bel exemple de réussite pour une bière poussée à l’azote.

RickTheRick (462) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
De couleur rousse assez limpide et soutenant évidemment une mousse du tonnerre, cette bière dégage essentiellement des parfums mielleux et maltés. Des effluves subtilement houblonnées ressortent également. En bouche, tout est dans la texture crémeuse (duh!) parfaitement maîtrisée qui rend chaque gorgée fort agréable. Au goût? Pensez à une rousse avec des houblons en plus grande quantité qu’à la normale, ceux-ci laissant une belle amertume en fin de gorgée. Une des meilleures de MacAuslan, à mon humble avis.
