50cl can - thanks a lot for throwing this in the mix, Allen! - Refreshing, medium-bodied APA with the right juicy malt-fruity hop balance and indeed a creamy biscuit base. Tastes a bit heavier, boozier than its 5.2 but compensates that with a wealth of deep and subtle exotic flavours: lichee, caramel, citrus zest. A true-to-style delight after a load too many of soapy German IPA-Kellerbiere.

Growler. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma was mainly small notes of caramel, bits of bready malt. Flavors were earthy with notes of bread, cream corn and a light sweet caramel finish. Did get some hops in the finish, just a touch of bitterness. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable and refreshing.

There’s not a lot of complexity here, but this is an epically delicious cream ale style beer. It’s malt-forward with only a little hoppiness at the end to snap off the finish. Pours with a nice fluffy head and tastes great super cold. There’s a tiny bit of banana and bubblegum hidden amidst the sweet malt and citrus tones to the hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cider-amber with big, flotsam, off-white head, good legs / Light body, crisp & hoppy, very dry with bitter finish / Dry flavors of toasted grain, weed, lemon, pine, and dark caramel / Wouldn’t call this a cream ale, but a very satisfying dry, pale ale.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 growler. pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a good sized, stable, white head. light herbal hop nose. flavor has notes of light grassy, herbal hops, flaked corn, and pale malts. not particularly sweet like the description says, which is probably good. its a solid, true to style, cream ale. a style we should see more of imo. light body, big carbo bubbles. leaves an orange peel-like bitterness in the finish.

Uploading old reviews that were missing comments. Decent brew but not memorable and the "sweetness" advertised certainly wasn't noticeable.
