2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 341ml. A brown one, topped by a dense, off-white to beige head of moderate size. Caramel, tending towards toffee in the aroma. Not butterscotch, but borderline. The same goes for the flavor, itís also equally boring and uninteresting. Super smooth on the palate, although a bit thin. I hope for a real cream ale when ordering this one, just for the tick, so I got sort of disappointed in that way, but even though itís very boring and one tracked, itís sure a drinkable beer. Canít imagine Iíll have another one though. 130703

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle listed at 4.8%ABV pours a slightly hazy light brown color with a finger of white head that leaves only a little bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild chocolate and light fruits with some earthy and citrus hop notes. Taste is light chocolate malty and fruit sweetness with some citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some decent carbonation. One of the better cream ales that I have sampled to date, but seems to be more characteristic of a brown ale.
