3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 10-24-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a hazy orange colored brew with only a tiny head. The head fades very fast to leave almost no lacing.
Smell – The smell is rather light. There are hints of a bready aroma as well as a very light citrus and pine smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some bread flavors and a lighter citrus hop flavor. The citrus is largely orange peel in nature, but some light flavors of grapefruit. In the middle of the taste some lemon comes to the tongue and mixes with the rest. The taste ends with a pine and earthy bite, which leave a lightly bittered flavor on the tongue
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is just above average. Not bad for the style of the beer and gives it a crisper feel.
Overall – A decent beer, but nothing too exceptional. Nothing really stands out in this one, but nothing really takes away either.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thick off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of resin/pine hops and malt. Medium body, good balance of malt and hops. Slightly bitter finish but a sweet surprise creeps in reminding me of apricot or peaches. Very nice beer!

Great first sip, but fades quickly, the beer is very refreshing as a summer drink, not too bitter or heavy. Worth a try!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Quite hazy, juicy orange body with some small, suspended sediment; off-white head fizzles quick to a thin film leaving sheety lacing behind. Aroma of honey drizzled oranges, mild flowers, sweet corn cereal, & some flaky toasted biscuit malt. Taste also has a sweetness & flavor that reminds me of honey. Light citrus, orange, earth, & mild floral notes from the obvious hoppage. Some zesty bitterness fading into a sweeter finish. Honey coated biscuits, toasted crackers, light grain. A little bit of lingering florals & citrus peel from the hops. Overall, a pretty nice cream ale. Maybe a little sweeter than expected or needed, but pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange like colour. Huge citrus and hoppy aroma with tangerine and tropical fruits and some pepper as well. On the palate it is medium bodied, sports a fast finish and a sort of weak mid-palate. Hoppy citrus with some bitterness and light caramel sweetness to balance out the brew. Interesting that this is listed as a cream ale as it is more of an american pale ale that a cream ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold can BB March 2015 at Kings Tun JDW. Drank it straight from the can. Aroma is lager. Body is medium to light, foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste is malty caramel up front with a lightly bitter finish. It’s a bit like a malty soft drink - Supermalt etc. Not far off sparkling water. The flavour is a bit soft for my liking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden with tinges of red, minimal tan head. Floral, bubblegum, light grassy nose. Quite bitter initially mellowing into the lingering namesake sweetness. Long sweet finish. Very light and watery body. Not much carbonation, some effervescence through its acidity. Reasonably good.
