3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the new slim can. Pours a dark golden-orange with a fair khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose is nicely hoppy with some citrus and tropical fruit notes alongside some sweet grain. Fairly sweet, but a bit more bitter. Medium bodied, activea bit oily, with a drying juicy bitter finish. Much more than what I was expecting out of a "cream ale" in a good way.

Can. JDW, Maidstone. Limp caramel malt with some American hops. Sweetish. Drinkable but unremarkable. Not my thing - I was being lazy and couldn’t be bothered going downstairs to get a real beer. Serve me right.

On-tap at Bernie’s in Waukesha, WI. This pours a hazy, brown color with a slight beige head. The aroma is sweet with a hint of malt. The taste is slightly sweet and malty. Smooth and easy drinking. Very well made and delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml can. Murky orange with large head. Aroma is nicely fruity. Peach, nectarine kinda fruitiness. Taste does indeed seem to balance bitter and sweet. That makes the taste come off as a little bland and muddled, but really it’s just doing its job. Pretty decent stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a very dark amber to orange color with a short-lived beige head. Smell is fresh hops clean and light. Taste is fresh also, hoppy, clean, fruity and unlike a cream ale. Very nicely balanced and super drinkable. Full body and crisp. Awesome smooth and something to get again when I want drinkable, and flavorful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly clear amber pour with a tight off-white head that leaves lots of lace. Fairly grainy nose with some citrus notes. There’s also a little hint of spruce. The grain takes a bit of a back seat to a nice fresh fruitiness on the palate. There’s a touch of astringency in the finish but all around this is a pretty decent drinking beer.
