Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founder’s intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

caramel, cereal, citrus, grass, woody, pale, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent A thin, watery beer. Nice colour on the pour with minimal head. Some aromas of grass/citrus, slightly woody. Sweetness overrides hoppiness too much in my opinion, and mouthfeel less creamy than would think for style. A basic beer - I think Saporo infuence with rice addition very apparent.

Like usual this has has a faint sort of eau de toilet element to it with a fluttering of sour and maybe a haunting but very distant buttery quality too. Nonetheless when these elements come together it hardly makes for a perfect marriage.

Golden pour with a finger of fast-disappearing head. Corn and a faint hint of hops in the aroma and the taste. Lighter body, though not as highly carbonated as other Sleemen.

Sleeman’s Cream Ale is a fairly light tasting ale, that is easy drinking if you enjoy a strong taste of hops. Aroma is strong hops, and light malts. Taste, is simply malts, hops, with an extremely light pear flavor that is almost unnoticeable. This beer is very smooth and creamy and leaves ones palate feeling relatively clean. Overall, a good easy drinking beer, but nothing to write home about.

Cette bière est très bonne et le gout est délicieux. Certainement une des meilleurs bières d’été. Le seule défaut que je peux y trouver est son amertume vers la fin de chaque gorgé dans c’est meilleur pour une brosse car vous ne pourrez pas vous arreter !

Nothing memorable. Thin palate and flavour. A tiny hint of creaminess. A full-flavoured beer? If your taste buds only detect water then "yes!" Combine lager and ale, without blending... truly a miracle of modern brewing science. Is this the beer of the pirate or bootlegging relatives... or was it the mayor?

I’m a fan of the cream ales but this is what you would expect from a macrobrew subsidiary. Smells and tastes like corn with some pulp (as in, pulp and paper) mixed in there. I wouldn’t pay to drink fermented corn mixed with mushy cardboard and I won’t pay for this again.
