3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from can at Standard market, Westmont. A darker gold color than the Crisp pils. Smell is much lighter, almost hard to find. But the taste more than makes up for it. Kind of citrusy, like a pale ale at first. Then a slight spicy note of wheat malts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Hazy, burnt orange colored beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grassy hops. Tastes of grassy/floral hops, some toffee, and toasted malt. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bittersweet in the finish with some grapefruit/citrus notes. Hoppier than expected, more like an IPA than a cream ale in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looking to try a good cream ale, and this isn’t it. Pours a nice clear copper wit h thin white top. Aroma hits with hops foremost when I was hoping for malt. Way too much hops in the flavor and aftertaste obscures what may be decent malt characteristics. Ultimately this is just a strange take on pale ale.

12 oz signature Sixpoint can. Lighter clear golden pour with a thin fizz head. Surprised to see the cream ale tag here. Drinks more like a sweeter side pale. Hop sturdy and a refreshing, cool finish. Nice beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Surprisingly dark, burnished orange hue; clear with a skimming of off-white. Creamed corn and rancid butter in the aroma after an early rush of bright, melony hop and honey. Slick, sweet, a touch hot, wooden bitterness, nail polish. The flavor is burly and disoriented, with bitter orange peel and pine clumsily suffocating whatever stylistic integrity might be present. It is medicinal and cloyingly sweet, with a vanilla hard candy flavor that can fall in the diacetyl spectrum. There is no crisp edge to the heavy-leaning body; it seems unlikely this could ever be blindly recognized as a cream ale.

Tap at McCoy’s. Pint glass. Light copper with small head and poor lacing. Subtle hop aroma. Sweet and light fruit . Oily resin and pleasant finish.

It’s pretty good all the way around, but because of its pronounced hop characteristics, gets points off for not being true to style. Still really good drinking beer. Would have again.
