Bottle at The Rhino. Very dark yellow, very small head. Decent flavour - dry tasty malt, lightly hopped. Grainy malt aroma is not great though. Very drinkable; summer quencher. Better than most Ontario versions of this style.

likely reformulated since these early reviews. Smell originally malty and fruity, then plain after warming up to room temperature. Short lived head. Creamy and malty, with a spot of fruit. OK with dinner at the end of a summer day.

Nice fruity notes, hints caramel. Smooth and mild come to mind. Not watery like Sleeman cream ale, this is much better

This is a great cream ale. Pours an off-white with nice carbonation and malt aroma. Well-balance..with a predominant carmel note. One of the best from the micros in Ontario.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild fruity aroma with a touch of herbal hops. Clear golden coloured with shy, white head that diminishes to cover with marginal lacing. Sweet with a grainy note and a pleasant floral/herbal hop flavour and restrained bitterness. Medium-light body with fair carbonation that pricks at the tongue. Bottle. Thanks, jercraigs!

pours pale gold with a white head, itís watery like most cream ales but there are traces of sweet, floral and cream in the ale to make it worth a taste. Mildly toasty and bready finish though. Not bad... complex enough to pass on a nice summer night.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear with a white head. Not much to speak of for aroma other than a sweetish cereal. Sweet and not creamy. Mild toasty flavours and subtle earthiness. Not bad, but in the style itís nothing to get excited about.
