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.

Copper pour, weak head. Aroma is caramel, nuts. Taste has some light fruit hops but is very malt forward throughout. Interesting cream ale.

sulawang (774) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Visual: Pours beer bottle brown, almost no head, barely any retention, many fast steady streams. Nose: brown sugar caramel malts, a some biscuit/cookie as well. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp malty bite Mid-palate: partially thin-flat mouthfeel, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel malts, light cola Finish: light burpy, light-sweet malty super subtle bitter dry hopped finish. Summary: Quite boring actually. Just a malty beer lacking any special characteristics.

Bottle. Nutty malt aroma. Pours dark copper with very small head. Creamy malt flavour with notes of nuts and brown sugar. Some sweetness lingering in the finish. Not bad.

Indeed creamy with grass and nut hints. Somehow less "Phillips-esque". A forgettable ale in an amazing line of beer.

Drank from bottle, sweet, caramel, fizzy, creamy, itís alright, not the best Phillips, but certainly drinkable.

ENG: 341ml bottle without the "cream" - just Ale. Purchased in Liquor Depot @ Whyte, Edmonton. Color is clean amber with medium head. Saturation is not too big. A bit skunky and sweet aromas. Taste is quite sour and malty with caramel and a bit roasty notes, with a mild sour/bitter aftertaste. The beer is very smooth, although itís quite boring. ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// ///~~~///~~~/// PL: Butelka 341ml z nową etykietą - po prostu Ale, bez dopiski "cream". Kupiona w Liquor Depot w Edmonton. Kolor klarowny, bursztynowy z niewielką pianą. Nasycenie nie za mocne. Dziwny, lekko śmierdząco-słodki aromat. W smaku dość kwaśne i słodowe z karmelowymi i palonymi nutami, z średnio kwaśno-gorzkim posmakiem. W smaku nieco wygładzone, niemniej jednak dość nudne.

ljthiessen (901) - 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.

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

Ratebeerís 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.
