355ml can. Barely clear amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has a touch of red currant, a middle layer of artificial cherry, some caramel, a minimally leafy-herbal touch. Taste is fairly bitter hoppy, slightly fruity, minimally artificial and sugary notes of red fruit, red currant, cherry, minimally sweet caramel malty basis. Due to the low number of ratings in this style, I’m still in search of Cream Ale characteristics. This comes along as a cleaned and sweetened British Bitter.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is a bit too bitter for a saison and the hops are too dominant.

Amber red. Quite hoppy for the style. Flavors of floral and pine hops. Lightness and drinkability of a lager. Pretty decent, even if it crosses style boundaries almost into IPL territory.

If I had to place this style, I’d lean more toward altbier than cream ale. Nose reveals the drop hopping, somewhat floral, hint of citrus. Some toffee’d malts in there too. Flavor is more malt, sweetish and caramelly, but with a nice floral bitterness right there. Bitter wack rises at the semi-dry finish, very reminiscent of altbier. Lingering floral hops in the aftertaste. Dark amber, almost tea colored, modest head.

Drank from a twelve ounce can. Was intrigued to try a cream ale, but found this guy was hoppy. Makes sense it has wet hops, But I don’t categorize this as a cream ale...

Taste is weird watery oily butterscotch, butterscotch hop, weak sugar,… oily sweet butterscotch, faint butter. Strange overly sweet butterscotch & incense beer. Didn’t really get into it.
