3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sure doesnt smell like a cream ale, like sticking my nose in a hop bin,defintely more American Pale Aleish,,a successful dry hopping procedure, that pretty much dominates the nose. Taste is however totaly unlike the aroma,here you get a straight balance of grain malt and grain hop,then hop bitterness in finish, That balanced blend is then washed from the palate almost immediately after the swallow,very mysterious how that happens. I take it this is supposed to be a surprising mix of malt sweetness(hence that Cream ale designation) and hop bitterness, but that quick ghostly appearance and disappearance of the malt ,makes a style assignment impossible. Very drinkable,session type,would go great with a spicey sweet salsa

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, pint. Clear amber color with small creamy off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of mild malt, fruits and floral hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel, following is fresh fruity, while finish is moderate resin hoppy. Medium to full body, creamy texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Very refreshing and easy going beer...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
can @ Vagabund Brauerei, Berlin. BB 11/2013.
Orangée, col crémeux beige.
Arôme est houblonné, fruité torpical restant assez subtil, le malté pâle tend à prendre un peu le dessus avec un bouquet savonneux d’agrumes et un léger pin.
Palais est agréable, léger plein de belles notes agrumes, pamplemousse et mandarine fort prenant, fini sec et un malt un peu éclipsé mais tout au profit des houblons. Même avec une date d’expiration passée, la bière reste solide.

This is a hoppy-ass cream ale. I enjoyed every sip but for the style it was pretty damn hoppy. In the best way possible, that is :-).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Soft, sweet hops and crackers aroma. Hazy orange, big puffy head. Mostly sweet flavor,some bitterness like an EPA, still more a sweet beer than a hoppy ale. Weird plush body. Soft plush body. Again, more bitter than you expect of cream ale, otherwise not stands out.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Advent beer #10 - 16oz can - pours like the light between the green and the red on those things you find in intersections. Nose is citrus and resin. More like an APA or red IPA. It’s good like a snow day on a Tuesday but you don’t teach anymore and it’s your wife that gets the day off. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

Can. The aroma is very malty and somewhat buttery with a decent grassy hop. The appearance is amber gold with a medium head. The flavor is same as the aroma. Brought me back a little to the Genny Cream days. This is sweeter and much smoother though.

Tap at Ginger man FW. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a light white head. Aroma is certainly hoppy with plenty of sweet notes. Creamy nose. Thin mouthfeel, grape flavor and wheaty with some lemon tartness and a light bitter finish. Different and interesting.

Pours golden with white head. Aromas of malt, hay, citrus. Sweet malt upfront followed by nice bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation. Not bad.

Canned@SBWF (Thanks to Anders for the slight splash left in the can!). Hazyish deep amber (almost copper) colour with a small beige head. Aroma is bready malts, mild grains as well as some floral notes. Flavour is slight floral hops, some toffee, mild herbal notes as well as some sweet malts. Quite creamy palate.
