COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Admin Notice (Capflu): Slipstream Cream Ale is 2008's version of Draught Dodger without the Maple Syrup (confirmed June 9, 2008). I suspect they are using up the last of the old labels.

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Darkish amber-brown colour, not much head. Malty caramel and butterscotch, a touch of marshmallow in the aroma. Heavier on the palate than expected, but not a lot of lingering flavour; a touch metallic. Not bad, but very simple and fairly boring.

Oldschool_Mike (73) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear brown colour. Aroma is faint sweet malt. Taste is balanced sweetness and bitterness. A good cream ale. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

MunBro (508) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Ratebeer’s info on this is outdated... new bottle in 2014 looks different and has dropped the cream ale advert. Very nice ale, notes of chocolate, toffee, malts, etc. Very smooth and easydrinking.

RD400F (199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle to sam adams glass, beer poured a transparent dark amber color with a cream colored head that rapidly faded. Aroma carries some grassy hop notes with caramel...but unfortunately not much else. Taste is typical beer taste...subtle blend of malts and hop but nothing to set it apart from the rest of the crop. Palate...thin bodied, easy drinking co2 medium. Overall...not bad but nothing special.

Between an amber and a brown colour, white head and rather clear. Smells of toffee. Taste of malts and toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AgentAle (788) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Aroma is a roasty caramel and molasses one. Some vanilla. Taste is a sweet maltiness paired with a basic bitterness. There is some malt richness but the overall malt/hop complexity is fairly basic.Appearance is a clear dark amber with well retained heading

Hazy and copper. True, smells of sweet toffee. Flavour is on the sweeter side. It is smooth, small bubbles just before it finishes. As the liquid warmed in my goblet, the taste got less desirable. Not bad mind you, just the malt came forward. Not as balanced as others have suggested. Am I smelling a hint of banana? I like they put the ingredients on the label. This should be legally mandatory.

An OK cream ale. Pours cloudy amber, lacks head. Smells of roasted malt, toffee, dough. Taste is malty, sweet finish. A bit too malty for an ale for me. Not a great balance, malt and sweet predominate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
