16 oz can courtesy of myspoonistoobig. Thanks Michael. Pours a cloudy copper amber with a small light tan head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing. The aroma is caramel, some breadiness as well as some light citrus. The initial taste is sweet caramel, followed by some breadiness and some light grapefruit. Light bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation.

From the 16 flo. oz. can stamped: Best Before 17Nov2011. It pours a medium amber with a slight haze and little to no head. A good dose of hops on the nose along with peaches and yeast. The body is above medium and creamy like i should be. Milly bitter hops and meaty fruits in the taste with a pleasant creaminess. Likeable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh...A so so beer, though I donít agree that this is a cream ale. Aroma was OK. Caramel malt with a hint of roastiness. Pour was a murky amber/light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a little disappointing. This beer is all malt driven. Notes of toffee and caramel are detectable but not very full or strong. Metallic aftertaste that is somewhat bitter, but not hoppy. Medium carbonation. Very average.

Can. Light nutty and caramel for the malt, moderate flowers and perfume for the hops, with wine, ginger and berries in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with nolacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes with a hint of sweetness and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Itís was kind of said after smelling the complex and fruity aroma and the flavor just didnít hold up to it. Still a good drinker though.

Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold color with a small, styrofoam like, white head. The nose is a little grainy and sweet but it has a nice little floral and pine hop action too. Some grain, but mostly hops with those floral and pine notes from the nose. Thin on the tongue but thirst quenching with a dry finish. I could pound this brew like nobodyís business. A great substitute for a lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can/16oz - Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a medium white head that settled to a creamy covering over the beer. Aroma was medium of biscuit malts, bready yeasts and citrus hops. Flavor is medium hoppy with plenty of bread dough malts. Some small amount of diacetyl, but not enough to detract from the taste of the beer. I like this way better than Genny Cream!

Can. Amber pour with a short tan head. Aroma is grainy and hoppy with tea leaves, soft citrus and light caramel. Taste is hoppy with soft citrus, tea leaves, light spicy hops, thinned caramel, and grains. Light bready malt as well. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more tea leaves, caramel, grassy and spicy hops, light citrus and grains.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can as pictured. Pours basically a clear orange/brown. Sorta sweet, not too bitter really. Really almost tastes like a wheat beer, though I guess a cream ale makes sense. Nothing to write home about, but not too bad either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-amber with a nicely proportioned white head. The nose holds a rather nondescript malt profile- hints of caramel backup up by some spicy herbal hop notes. The flavor starts with bready malts, and quickly finishes with caramel, and orangepeel. Not much happening. A light to medium body sports low carbonation and a grainy but clean finish.
