COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cream Ales are true American styled brews. Mimicking European light lagers, the Cream Ale is brewed utilizing the top fermenting Ale yeast resulting in a more complex flavor and nose. Cream ales traditionally are brewed with a blend of malted barley and corn grits for a light body and golden straw color. A very slight hop presence helps round out this simple but refreshing beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 A good effort. Bitter for a cream ale. Not up to the standard set by New Glarus Spotted Cow.

Clear light yellow, minimal white head. Quite sweet honey and cereal. Light bitterness with a lot of clean, residual sweetness. Not particularly complex, light body, medium finish. Slight carbonation. Pleasant, drinkable beer.

It has a nice creaminess at the end. Not bad for MKE. Corn grits, huh? Mmmm...

ThirstyBird (2479) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
On tap at their Grafton location, pours a hazy dull pale yellow with a dill cream head. The smell is corn, marshmallows, grain. The taste is as it smells, grainy sweetness and some fruit ending fruity crisp. The beer is creamy with fine carbonation.

Clear pale yellow, big lasting, lacing whtie foam head. Barley, little earthy aroma. Smooth taste, creamy, barley. (Chicago 201510)

On-tap, this pours a semi-clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. The aroma is mild with hints of sweet malt. The taste is light, sweet and easy drinking. A nice substitute to Spotted Cow if you are looking for something different.

A corny beer, strangely enough. The scent and finish remind me of the canned creamed corn mom used to make, and my brother and me had to choke down, a half century ago. Outboard is tasty enough -- smooth and sweet -- but I don’t think I could drink two in the same week.

[Bottle] Pours a brighter golden color with a small white head. Notes of corn syrup, grains and breads in the nose. White bread, cracker, dough, honey malts and light floral hops in the flavor. Lively carbonation. A very drinkable beer overall. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is a light malt body, little cereal grain. Taste is light sweet malt, cereal grain, tasty and refreshing. A tasty cream ale worth buying again. Nice lacing.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy Orange with nice white head. Aroma of grains and grass, maybe a little floral notes. Taste is moderately sweet and mild bitterness. Light to medium bodied with some citrus orange flavor, grass, floral and earthy flavors. Average to above average cream ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glass. Light but with a touch of flavor, almost an apple flavor. Not bitter or a lot of "beer" flavor, a good intro to other light craft beers.
