BB 25 JUL 2012
Hazy copper color, smallish off-white head. Mainly hoppy, green, citrus scent. Huge focus on hops in the smell. Malty, bread, grainy, caramel, cream, sweet, bitter taste. Almost thin like taste, very different from the scent, a bit stale. Lingering mineral and dry aftertaste. A bit hin mouthfeel, low co2. Medium bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared @ The Rover. Pours tiny hazy copper with a frothy off-white head that clings to the glass while slowly dissipating leaving some thick lacing. Smell is sweet and slightly malty with toffee, honeydew melon, plums, sweet very ripe oranges, vanilla fudge and very subtle hints of cocoa powder. Taste is sweet, slightly fruity and tiny metallic with toffee, cereal, honeydew melon, orange juice, lemon zest, dried grass and canned peaches. Mouthfeel is creamy, slightly watery and light bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and tiny bitter with grass, prunes, lemon zest and lemon flavored hard candy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Can) Pours copper with a sand colored head. The aroma holds soft pine and fruits from the hops alongside toast and a touch of wheat. Creamy and soft on the nose. Hints of fudge. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic with notes of toast, wheat, bread, citrus and hints of fruits. The mouthfeel is watery, light tart and soft with light to medium carbonation. Citric and wheaty finish. Light bodied.

Pours darker than most cream ales, with a thin layer of white head that disappears fairly quick. Lacing is average. Slight hoppy presence in the aroma...maybe some citrus. Nice malt and slight wheat presence in the taste. Pretty good cream ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can [473ml]. Pours a cloudy, bubbly orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Semi-mild aroma of resiny hops, light sweetness, sweet pale malt, some fruit and spices. Flavour of hops and fruit along with pale malt and spices. Decent bitter finish. More like a Pale Ale then a Cream Ale, which is a good thing. Medium bodied. Nothing great but it’s pretty good, I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from a local deli. the guys there went out their way to help me. and even split up a few of these 4 packs for me. I was impressed with the service. that place belongs on ratebeer for their service alone. and a not too shabby selection. anyway. back to this berrr. Super orange hazy with a medium sized white sudsy head. Nose is sweet, but not overly sugary, some light citrus and resinous hops, a little bit vegetal, dust and dirt lingering. Flavor is pretty good. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. Nothing great (but still a very good cream ale for all i know, just not my style), but easy drinking and approachable cream ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Poured a medium sized off-whte head that was mostly lasting, fair amount of lacing, hazy body, fast rising carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aroma was malty, semi-sweet and pine. Ditto for the Flavor. The Mouthfeel was mildly tingly and this is a medium bodied Cream Ale beer. Overall, this beer had very subtle aromas and flavors which took away from the overall experience of drinking/rating.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz. can - Pours lightly hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Light herbal hopping on the nose, big barley graininess, and a light honey sweetness. Really big fluffy carbonation that’s extremely smooth in the mouth. Grainy taste as well, with a bit sharper hop profile, a bit of toffee, and a drying mineral finish. The hops just have a bit of boozy sharpness to them that are a bit off-putting. I’d like to see them a bit smoother. Still, it’s easy-to-drink and flavorful, without being too heavy. Light years different than Spotted Cow even as they’re both listed as cream ales, but I’d take this any day of the week.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from can at Standard market, Westmont. A darker gold color than the Crisp pils. Smell is much lighter, almost hard to find. But the taste more than makes up for it. Kind of citrusy, like a pale ale at first. Then a slight spicy note of wheat malts.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Gene’s. Strange beer. Creamy and sweet. Hops at the very end hiding under other flavors, seems out of place. Flat palate. Not bad but maybe not my thing. Serving: Can
