UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 On tap @ Rattle n Hum, NYC. I had no idea this was a cream ale. Assumed it was a experimental type blonde ale or something. Noticeable vanilla notes. I really liked this, good all around. (Also enjoyed this in LIC with CUJO during a beach volley ball game. Rating left the same)

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Bell House in Brooklyn. Probably the best way to describe this beer is take a #9, subtract a tad of the apricot and add in some hops. Personally, I don’t think this beer tastes anything like a cream ale, but that’s a good thing.
