Draft pour at the Tavern Hall. From notes. Pours a clear golden color with a lot of fizz. No head. Smooth, creamy flavor with a sweet fruity grain aroma. I seem to think most cream ales are much of the same, though this one was on the flavorful side, which is good. Overall, not bad.

Gription79 (2650) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours golden with minimal head and pour head retention. The aroma is a sweet maltiness, soft floral hopping note. The flavor is grainy, malty, light floral and fruity notes. This is a solid cream ale. Delicate. Nice.

I avoided buying this beer for years because I thought it would taste like an orange creamsicle beer. It must have been the name and the orange label.

09.29.14 best by. Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 07.16.14. A: Sweet flower. Maybe citrus too. Nice. A: Completely see through straw yellow. The head recedes quickly to a ring. T: Flower with a malt backbone dominate. Grass is subtle. P: Creamy. O: It had a nice floral flavor and was very well balanced. It was very good for a cream ale. It was just a very laid-back and subtle beer.

TimE (4149) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
Light golden color. Quick dissipating white head. Lots of honey and floral notes, but slightly astringent when it should be smooth. Low hops. Not really that impressive, but refreshing I guess.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Golden in color with a hint of red. . Lightly hopped nose. Fruity, lightly sweet up front with some floral qualities. Decent hoppiness for the style.

Bottle, pours bright pee yellow. Malty, sweet nose, probably it’s best quality. Sharp, biting malt beer.

Bottle at Komachi for my 10th cream ale rate. Finally!

Rice, malt, lemon in the nose. Rather sweet and fruity, lemony. Light but solid malt. Some grapes and cherries. A bit spritzy, oily body. Reminds me why it took so long to get 10 cream ale ratings.
