Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
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.

Holdwine (1116) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2007
On draft with nitro. Great cream ale. Easy to drink, creamy, frothy. Enough pleasant bitterness to qualify as a bitter. Well balanced with decent roasted malt character.

This one had a nice fluffy white head with a golden/orange body. It had a nice creamy taste with a great mouthfeel. Overall this is a good summer beer for session drinking near Camden Yards.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2006
A hazy orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma has light notes of citrus and fruit - a bit boring. The flavor has notes of citrus, fruit - peaches, and lighter notes of toffee. The mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught @ The Wharf Rat in Baltimore Amber color, creamy white head, lots of lacing. Nose of light grassy citrusy hops and some sweet malts. The flavor is tangy, moderately bitter. Too much citris character to clash with the malts.

Draft at Wharf Rat on Pratt. Rusty gold with a tall creamy white head. Nose is flowery, lightly hopped and semi-sweet. Taste is malty, sweet, flowery, fruity, and has some light hops. Body is creamy and smooth with mild carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malts, flowery and slightly spicy hops and fruit notes.

hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Nitro... Hazy, deep amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, almost beige head. Impeccable retention. The nose is greatly diminished by the nitro infusion, but as the herbal, earthy beer warms there are gentle reminders of leather, butter and grapefruit. Good balance in flavor. Well-bittered for the style. No sweetness. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Lengthy, crisp, bitter finish. Great cream ale!
