3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden hazy colour with a white foamy head. Has a sweet aroma, a bit of yeast. Great palate, lots of flavour up front, medium hops, tongue coating flavour, thin and sparkling, seems to dissolve into your tongue. Slightly sharp on the finish, good overall, interesting beer not your typical cream ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (4,10). BB 01.2017. Label not the one with guns, ABV is 4,9. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white, retaining and lacing top. Nose is dominated by pale malts and backed by citrusy and resinous hops with a hint of spiciness. Bit weak. The hops leap forward as itís warmed some more. Taste is very lean and clean with a good citrusy bitterness and a sweet malty character that balances it out, whereas finish is quite bitter. Body medium or slightly less, carbonation thin with a fizziness in the throat when swallowing. Palate dry and malty. Overall a very nice easy-drinking beer - would make a good potential turning point for macro-lager guys I imagine. I think this was my first ever Cream Ale so I canít put it into context.

Piney, catty hop aroma. Tastes frankly too hoppy for style, but it isnít out of balance. Finishes almost dry - slight corn sweetness at end.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
So tell me my fellow Canadians, does your bottle have a Tommy Gun on it as pictured above, or has the temperamental, over-powered crybabies at the LCBO made him change the label. Mail me I honestly want to know.
As for the beer. Pours a cloudy amber-gold, and I suspect I should have used a nicer glass than a tumbler to get the proper effect. The white head isnít significant and reduces to a spotty sheet quickly. Nose has decent malts, some citrus hops, and it seem a little sour grapefruit. Is this a soured beer? Lets find out. Nope, not soured, but there is a chucky amount of bittering hops in this fella, some citrus hops, and a softer hay malts that really donít stand up. Quite bitter on the aftertaste. Not finding this beer well balanced. The bitterness is dominating its poor malt sub, and everyone has forgotten the safety word. Not a bad beer, but not exceptional.

330ml from LCBO. pours a hazy golden colour. Weird aroma with floral hops, some yeasty notes and some hay. Medium to light body, fast profile, little in terms of flavour but the texture is there as is a slight bite on the finish. meh, this style of beer never did it for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hilarious no-guns nanny state ontario label. Pours cloudy with a good head. Fresh open sweet and hop aroma. Taste is pleasantly dry with nice grassy hop pale fruit accents, supremely drinkable. Itís very funny Mik send our market Cream Ale because Ontario has been mentally delayed with beer styles behind the USA by a decade or two. That said this is very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a lightly hazy golden colour with decent-sized white head. Aroma has effervescent flowers, citrus and some sweet, lightly grainy malt. Flavour has lively floral hoppiness, some citric character and even a little soapiness to go with an understated, modestly sweet malty backbone. Lightly drying finish. Not a classic cream ale, but nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
MIneral, light leafy hoppyness and mildly sweet malt in the aroma. Smells refreshinig but very mild. Hazy yellow with a long lasting white head. Fairly hoppy upfront, again the leafy hops are evident, finishes very clean with not much flavor to talk of. The hops predominate this one completely, the malt profile is very mild. Decent but nothing mildblowing, refreshing and crisp. Average body and carbonation.
