Ungstrup (29287) - 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.

hopscotch (9161) - 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!

GT2 (8434) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear tea amber. Thick, creamy cask or nitro looking head. Muted nose. Taste is dusty and vegetal. Mild bark bitterness. Not a lot going on, though almost every beer of the 10 we sampled as a group had some very astringent and chemical flavors. I think there is a major flaw in the overall brewing process here.

Dogbrick (8140) - 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.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2003
This is a very dark amber beer with a big creamy head. It's milky smooth, heartily malty and wonderfully robust in the tradition of the best British bitters. Beautiful.
