Pours orange with an off white head and sweet aroma of hops and fruit. Taste is sweet, of hops, fruit, pine, and grapefruit with a hoppy, bitter, smooth finish. Tasty brew that goes down easy, solid beer.

Wow, I never knew a cream ale could have such flavor. This tasted like a hoppy lager. A little unfamiliar at first, but a nice change of pace.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: medium rust brown, with a creamy tan head and a ton of suspended floaties; lots of lace. Aroma: slightly dank, earthy and light citrus hops, notes of caramel and graham cracker. Taste: almost fruity sweetness over caramel malts, with some mellow, earthy hops to balance. Finish: clean, smooth, with lingering toasty caramel and hops notes. Notes: Easy drinking, hard to classify, but tasty. Didn’t care for the look of it, but everything else about this beer was at least a tick above average.

Cream ale? I’d say that there is very little in the way of "cream" coming through here. Nice fresh hop aroma and bitter taste with a balanced backbone of bready/caramel malts.

On draft at Capone’s in Philadelphia.
The beer appears transparent and orange colored, with a good sized head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is rather weak, with a light dose of malt. The flavor is really tasty, with a very subtle fruitiness and enjoyable malt flavors. This is by far the best cream ale I have ever had. The beer finishes with a healthy amount of bitterness, more so than expected. Overall, a very enjoyable beer. I can definitely see why this is the top rated cream ale.
Serving type: on-tap
