3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Duane Reade. Weak aroma. Nothing noticeable other than a trace of hops. Beautiful deep gold with lasting head. sweet initially, but very well balanced. hops match well, nothing overwhelming, neutral on the palate. (had some with sushi, and it paired well). I enjoy the sweetness and balance. i’ll definitely have this again.

On draft. Great looking golden beer. Not much on the nose. Some sweetness from the malt, not overly biscuity and a slight hop bite in the background. It’s a good session beer but feels a little subdued in the flavour department.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild sweet aroma, with hints of vanilla and pine. Pours a slightly cloudy orangish-amber, with a quickly fading white head. Much more complexity then I was expecting from a cream ale, sharp notes starting off, with it fading to a caramel finish. There’s more hops in this then most of the cream ales I’ve had. There’s a full mouthfeel, with a bit of slickness. This is an impressive beer, and I’ll be picking up some more of this in the future.

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.

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.
