2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Moderately hazed dark orange brown color. Two and a half fingers of beige, frothy/foamy head. Retention is average and moderate amounts of randomly dispersed clumps of lacing are left behind.
3.5 S: Bready yeastiness is probably the strongest aspect of the nose. To follow, hops of the earthy, floral, and herbal variety manifest. Mildly sweet, mildly biscuity malts round this out.
3.0 T: Solid blending of the yeast, malt, and hops, but the end result doesnít impress or discourage. Grainy malts with a moderate neutral malt sweetness. Mild bitterness with earth, herb, and flower hop flavor. Mild yeasty breadiness. Not bad, but run of the mill.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light, pleasant creaminess.
3.0 D: Not a bad brew, but thereís enough similar, yet tastier ones out there to forget about this.
Serving type: can

16 oz. can from Bertís Better Beers. A nice example of an cream ale. Nice eye appeal in my footed pilsner glass. Gold with full, frothy head. Lots of retention. Lots more hops then I was expecting. However, the brewerís deScription is spot on. Semi-sweet malt with a balanced hop. Creamy texture as it should have. Itís nice for the style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Cream ale? Bad pale ale it seems. Reddish and hazy, no head or lace. Funky but dead hop aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet with some spicy, herbal, and earthy hop notes followed by a strong metallic and dead yeast finnish. There is a cool creamy aspect in the later half of the palate. The mouth feel is awful...is cloying and gritty. I live in BK and pass on this every time I see it on tap. The only reason Iím drinking this now is to rate how bad a brewery they are and hopefully pop some of the hype bubble. Itís not as bad from the can as it is the tap though.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light brownish color. Smell is very hoppy, this is a cream ale? Taste is also hop forward, a bit of malt. Overall a decent beer but not really to style.

Yellow pour, white head. For a cream ale this is pretty damn good. Aroma has some typical corn notes, but I also get some nice caramel malt and very some earthy hops. Flavor is malty, caramel, malty flavor.

Tall Boy can from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a bright, copper color with a big white head and some lacing. Aroma is malty, toast, corn. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, a little yeasty, a little bitter hops, with a clean bitter finish. Tasty.

Can poured into a snifter. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aromas of bready malt. Hops up front well balanced with sweetness. Mouthfeel lighter than I prefer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can and served in no-nik glass: Hazy golden hue with small floaties, long lasting creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of biscuity and bready malts along with a dash of caramel, some peppery and herbal hop, light grapefruit ester. The taste is a smooth balance of pale malts and fruity hops, a touch tea-baggy with a quick finish. The mouth feel is smooth and easy, a bit metallic however. If the ABV was a tad lower this would be a very good session brew. Still could easily have a couple with no issues. Surprisingly good.

A very nice cream ale. Pretty mild, but such is this style and it sticks true to that.
