Hardly creamy at all. Pours amber. Sweet beer aroma. Mild, sweet flavour. An above average beer.

This is my favourite beer brewed by Quidi Vidi. Pours a golden colour with a small temporary head. Smells of sweet herbs, bread, and bubblegum. Great taste, the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. A great, easy-drinking beer!

Pint at Celtic hearth. Minimal cap on a clear yellow sea of sucky. Aroma of malty cereal. Taste of sugary water.

Fairly malty but not very creamy at all. Somewhat flat and cheap for a "cream ale"

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
355ml bottle direct from brewery. Pours amber in colour, small head. Decent malty taste, hint of euro hops. Not bad.

northropfrye (2150) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Boring red colour. Raisny malty aroma and taste. A touch too sweet, not really balanced. Drinkable, flavourful, but nothing special.

355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a modest white head that settles quickly leaving a few spots of lace behind. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a moderate hoppy bitterness. Certainly, the best that this brewery has to offer so far. But, still, just an average brew.

341ml brown bottle. Golden pour with a moderately sized white head which fades into a thin creamy sura e foam. Aroma has a slight fruitiness, some apples. Flavor has quick fruity notes, apples and some grains. Finish has some lingering fruit, some dryish grains. Light body, medium to high carbonation.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
Found a dusty, obscure bottle of this at a Mom & Pop liqour store in Edmonton, AB. Colour: Light orange-ish yellow....minimal head. Nose: A strong cream soda blast, aging brown enriched bread, some pepper. A truly unique aroma....crazy...but was it due to an old bottle? Iíll give it points just on being unique. Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Distinct creamed corn, some light, light caramel and floaty malt.
