COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark ale with a light refreshing palate. Northwestern hops are utilised to accentuate the aroma and are well balanced with a combination of North American malts expertly blended to create a truly drinkable and flavourful brew.

cfrancis (2355) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours dark brown with a moderate pillowy beige head. Aroma is chocolate malt with earthy malts. Taste is a blend of earthy malt, almost a molasses. Profile is a little all over the place.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany with a beige head. Aromas of raisin, dark sugar, caramel, dates, light molasses, and notes that make me think "spiced ale". As for taste, light bodied, and slightly watery with a strange sour note out of the gates, dried fruits, light bitterness, and light spice up front that leads into nutty, dark fruit, hard water, and light woody notes. Underneath that sour note that doesn’t quite belong, there’s a very sessionable beer here.

Raistlin (121) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours dark color with minimal white head that disappears quickly unfortunately. Texture is somewhat creamy and thick, and carbonation is non existent. That being said, tastes great. Not overly heavy so its good to drink on summer days. Doesn’t have any rough after taste. Bit of butter scotch flavor to it, but not too sweet.

Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
341 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Natural Selection BC Craft Brewers Sampler Pack). Pours a darkish orangey brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweetish caramel, a little chocolate and light nuts. Flavour is caramel/toffee, some crusty bread, hints of chocolate and a mellow nuttiness. On the thin side. Very light carbonation. Forgettable.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from a mix-BC 6 pack. This beer pours a much darker mahoganey brown with a very slight head that vanished fast. Served in a flared pilsner glass. The aroma is syrupy caramel, butterscotch & fudge. This cream ale has the zesty active carbonation I associate with Vancouver beers, thankfully it is pretty smooth and not so rough. The taste is tangy butterscotch and caramel. I think it may have been heat damaged and I am getting diacetyl. It is OK but that sweetness is somewhat cloying. Once it warmed up you did get some cream flavor as well.

robinvboyer (3106) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Dark brown pour, with a big sticky off white head. Very sweet malty aroma. Some cereals are present, some nuts, and minimal hops. Velvet mouth feel, soft carb. Sour finish, low bitterness, lots of metal. I guess this bottle of infected, cause the finish like i said is solidly sour.

Gerbeer (1778) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap. Pours a hazy brown with moderate head. Aromas of nuts and dusty malts. Flavors are similar but with distinct cardboard notes.

tdubs92 (16) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Slight caramel with a chocolate aroma, dark brown appearance with a finger65 width white chocolate colour head. Not really an earthy taste probably due to its cream ale brewing but a satisfying malty and smooth taste. Fairly clean on the palate. I purchased a bottle in a 650 ml bottle and was quite satisfied with it. Surprised how dark the cream ale was. Would probably buy another.

Had this on tap in a hotel lobby. Pretty approachable stuff. Pours a deep brown/copper with a creamy off white head. Nice malty finish. Ok stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very smooth cream ale, a little watery but altogether tasty and drinkable. Pours brown red with some mild cream head. Tastes of general beer, a little weak but no real complaints here.
