3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured golden with large, creamy, durable of f-white head.
Mild mix of hops and bready malts with hops dominant in the nose.
More flavorful than the aroma suggests, and particularly more hoppy. Enough sweet malts to provide a solid base, an initially mildly sweet taste, and a finish that is only mildly bitter albeit with plenty of citrus and herbal notes from the hops.
o: very good flavor behind a lightly aromatic beer that seems like a cross between a cream ale and a PA.

For a cream ale, this is exceptional. A bit too alcoholic to be a true session, but its perfect balance and mildness mean you want to make an exception. Tried in NYC in 2013.

Interesting cream ale. It has a light aroma. It has a pleasant golden color. The flavor is not very complex. It starts with a sweet fruity taste, but has a bitter finish. I was not expecting the finish to be as bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy orange, the color of blush on a peach. Tall head of soft, eggshell colored foam that dwindled to a layer on top and some creamy lace. Nose is fruity and juicy with peach and orange citrus. There’s a playful bite on the nose from the simcoe hops and a little pepper. Underneath is good bready malt that’s honey sweet. Taste is light and fruity with floral hops, peach, apricot and orange peel. The cracker and bread are sturdy but light as a feather and carry all that fruit over the palate with ease. Finishes with another bite from the simcoe on the back palate and leaves dry with a sticky, sweet aftertaste and a touch of bitter. Body is creamy and although well carbonated, it was downright silky.
This beer wasn’t short on hops at all and the hop character was intense but without oil or too much bitter. The simcoe never got catty and the bread, while sweet, never outclassed the fruit. Easy to see why Sixpoint was #1 at the NYS TAP festival. So far each offering is unique and expertly done. This was a graceful interpretation of a cream ale that drank easily and with a little panache.

12 ounce bottle divided by four. Amber color, bubbly, thin foam on top, sweet and bready aroma. Taste was assertively hopped and also pleasantly malted to balance things out. It had more flavor than I expected out of a cream ale. Not too shabby overall, very quaffable.

On draft at Brandon Brass Tap, poured a golden yellow color with aromas of grain, and some malt. Flavors are the same, some sweetness, and some light fruit, ok cream ale, this style of beer is not in my wheel house, meh.
