4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crazy 4 finger off white head that lingers for a while. Medium orange in color. Hazy with visible yeast sediment. Aroma is floral w/biscuity malts and citrus hop notes (Orange and Grapefruit) The taste is complex, but good. In the taste im getting sweet mandarin, grapefruit, pineapple and biscuity/caramel malts. The beer is sweet without being cloying. There is also a slight bitterness at the end from the citrus hops. This beer is extremely sessionable at only 5.2% and is very enjoyable. I will stock up on this beer whenever I come across it.

Pretty happy for style. Not a huge amount of cream here, has more of an amber ale feel. Pours orange without much head or lacing. Light bitter finish. Some citrus and rust. Tap at Black Squirrel.

Nice Amber color. On the nose, malt sweetness with a little hop spiciness. Pick more of this on the first taste, with toasted maltiness. Strong beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can to tulip. Pours a somewhat hazy Amber with a fluffy white head. It smells like malty sweetness and citrusy hops. Taste is nicely balanced sweet and bitter. Decent citrus as well. Overall a solid beer. Would be a good barbque beer.

1 pint can at home. Poor head retention. Sweet and a little bit too flat. Okay to drink but wouldn’t by another can.

I guess my exposure to a Cream Ale has been limited to Genny Screamers and Little Kings. First one went down a little weird, but I really liked it as I got to the end of the 6 pack. I think the thin Red Bull cans are clever. Promotes faster drinking. Good beer. Want to try something heavier by this crew.

Tap at Beer Authority, New York. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, some hops and malts. Little bit of soapy. I don’t know is this the point of cream ales.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at home. Pours a light amber with one finger of persistent head. Aroma is citrus and some floral. Flavor follows with some bitterness and a bit of metallic tinge. Smooth. Hoppiness is there but does not overpower. Nice, smooth beer.
