UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 On tap at Port Carlsbad. Another not required component of a big lineup of 39 taps, though not needed, itís a beer for those with a palate. Moderate lace, and as expected a well-retained head. Not too creamy, since cream ales have nothing to do with "creaminess", and a lovely engaging, yet light mouthfeel. Quite different than the amigo lager, with more pale malt and lightly citric hops, as opposed to more traditional lager/european hops. Softer yeast presence with just a hint of fruitiness, as opposed to a lager yeast.
Really nicely attenuated, very flavorful and lacking of any flaws.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Pizza Port tap takeover. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white cream head. Crisp, doughy malt nose, light lemon. Lovely flavor, with white bread, lemon, dough and fine straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with doughy white bread, a bit more mellow lemon. Lovely. Super drinkable.

At last, a cream ale that tastes creamy! This is no Genny Cream Ale, but a nice tasting, creamy beer that would go down great at a bbq.

On tap at Pizza Port. Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet honey like aroma. Malty honey bread taste with a crisp toasty finish. Certainly a better than average beer.

Pours a light yellow with a nice laced head. Light malt notes show ealry with some lighter citrus noted near the end. A great easy drinking with a bit of comeplxity. Great for lunch or sitting around.

decaturstevo (4869) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2007
On tap at PPCB. A clean yellow pour. Almost no nose but clean as a whistle. While it has a bit of maltiness it doesnít have the adjunct taste. It has the lightest of bitters as well. Solid palate and carbonation. As clean as pin and very refreshing excellent drinker.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
On-tap at PP CíBad. Pours a clear, light yellow color with a thin, crisp white head, some spider web lace. Smells crisp and malty. Tastes sweet, crisp, and malty. There is a general sweetness as well, cream? I donít know. Thin body, coats the mouth, crisp carbonation.

Craft Clerkenwell Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Light palate, minerally crisp. Yes - a little creamy malt. Pleasant light orangey citrus. Semi dry crisp finish. Itís fine.

Golden pour with a white head. Sweet bread, biscuit, and grain on the nose. Lightly floral, some grass, and mild citrus peel. Light fruit esters, too. The flavor is quite light and refreshing. Crisp malt profile with some sweetness of bread and biscuit. Floral and grassy hops, hints of citrus peel, yeast, and some mild esters. Minimal bitterness.
