Poured a clear amber-red with a creamy offwhite head. Aromas of scotch and caramel malts. Taste is a bit watery and quite bitter. A good amount of creamyness complements the hops. A little light but not bad.

20101011 Nitro at Wharf Rat. Simple, clean, mildly (surprisingly) hoppy session ale with lingering bready notes. Better than I expected. Pleasantly airy body despite the nitro tap. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Nitro draft (on the menu as "smooth pour") at the Pratt Street Ale House, 9/6/09, under the name "Coventry Cream Ale"
Aroma: Nose has some citrus, some nice vanilla, earthiness
Appearance: Amber color, creamy and lasting head, lots of coating lace
Flavor: Some creamy vanilla, citrus hops, a very tasty beer
Palate: Creamy mouthfeel, smooth, nice amount of body
This was one of the better beers I tried at the Pratt Street brewery. A very good cream ale (which is what I think this should be categorized as). A beer I enjoyed quite a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub (as "Coventry Cream Ale". This beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a medium and creamy white head that dissipates slowly. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild hops and earthy malt. Light and creamy body with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and a touch of sweet fruit. The finish is smooth and mildly hoppy with a sweet malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
