UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours an deep amber colour with a little haze and a fluffy off white head. Aroma of wood, orange peel and grapefruit, smells a bit like fruit salad sweets. Taste of citrusy orange and grapefruit, a little spiciness and caramel malt. Creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Balanced bittersweet finish. Quite nice

JDW, can. Aroma is hops, resin, cat pee, bitter. Taste is fruity, nice enough something not quite there. Alright though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355mL can from Beer Cartel. BB 08MAY15
Pours a hazy pale orange body with a small fluffy white head.
Aroma is pretty good! Spicy, woody, grapefruit-esque American hops with a doughy, husky cereal malt undertone.
Body is quite light, crisp, dry, reasonably high carbonation.
Bready/doughy, cracker biscuit-like malt backbone with a touch of golden syrup sweetness form backbone for a nice hit of citrus rind & woody hop spice. Bitterness relatively high, lingering, dry refreshing finish.
First commercial Cream Ale I’ve come across, pretty decent stuff...very light bodied and easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can to shaker glass. Pours amber orange, two finger quick off white head, not much lace or retention. Lots of suspended particles. Aroma of mango and herbs. Taste is nicely balanced, medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes on the sweet side with tasting notes of dough, apricot, butterscotch and herbs. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(can) Golden amber complexion with lingering white head and glass lacing. A nice balance of mild malt with enjoyable bitterness. Silky palate. Tart finish. Very well done. Would be easy to session with one. Very impressive for this style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy orange with a thick off-white head.
Aroma: Light aroma of an orange creamsicle with a bit of hops and mango.
Taste: A sweet cream and zesty orange start with a finish of grass and pine. Fruity, slightly bitter aftertaste. Almost no malt anywhere.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, silky, and fizzy.
Overall: This is Sixpoint’s most popular beer for a reason. It’s easily accessible, very drinkable, and totally delicious. A really nice balance of sweet and bitter. As Sixpoint says, it’s hard to put this in a category. Sixpoint calls it a cream ale. I’d call it a mix between a cream ale and a pale ale.
