Draught at McMenamins Mill Creek, WA; simply as Cream Ale, 5.16% ABV, 11 IBU, on nitro
Hazy blond color with creamy head. The aroma is a bit buttery, some vanilla too. Smooth mouthfeel, not much flavor; the bitterness is so low that it almost seems sweet.

Lock this motherfucker in. I love cream ale. This one had a nice fruity hop nose, floral, sweet light malty nose, corn bread. Pours hazy golden, nice creamy nitro head. The flavor has nice light corn, bread, sweet lighter malt notes, fruity hop notes light grapefruit and floral hops in the finish. Smooth creamy light body on nitro. Super easy to drink. A solid beer.

On draft at the Spar cafe in Olympia. Pours bright yellow with a thick cascading white creamy head. Pushed with nitrogen gas. Has a mild milky malty flavor. Smooth and very drinkable. A good approximation of cream ale.

Nitro Draught@ Olympic Club 08’. Golden and hazy with tight nitro head. Sweet and soft with a thick and full bodied mouth feel. Finishes as it should.

Very smooth on the nitro tap. Pours gold with a silky smooth white head. Very balanced with a sweet honey flavor up front and balanced finish. Creamy on the palate, and just a solid beer throughout.

Nitro Tap... Sorta of reminded me of a mild pale ale. Came out an unfiltered copper tone with a thin white head. Medium carbonation and flavors of caramel, pine, and a nice hop and sweet malt balance. Ending smoothly.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Sampled @ Fulton Pub. Called "McMenamins Cream Ale" - served on nitro. Light yellow, lager-like appearance with a frothy white head... creamy and soft initially, some light lemons and soft wheat flavors. A good one, very smooth and sweet lemons, pleasent. Tons of lacing... It was a good experience until it warmed up and a skunky and rotten milk flavor emerged... what a wild 180.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2004
On-Tap @ McMenamins on the Columbia
Pale gold color, light creamy head & lacing. The aroma caries a touch of malt, some light hops. Creamy finish with a malty light body. Pretty unimpressive.
