Havenít had many cream ales but becoming a favorite. This poured an orange/yellow, with white head. Medium bodied with smooth malt and a decent hop finish. Suprising that itís 7.2 abv, goes down easy,

Bread, biscuits, fruit, and a little corn in the aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet. Finish is spicy, lightly bitter and fruity. Iím becoming a fan of this brewery--if youíre in the mood for something a little different, this is a really good choice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/13
Aroma: Th one has a nice doughy and malty nose, yeasty, plenty of spice, and some grassy notes
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel-orange color with a small white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste mildly sweet, yeasty and doughy, with a mild bitterness, and a spicy finish
Palate: It is medium bodied with a rather tingly feel and a bit of boozy heat on the finish
This is a pretty nice beer. Thereís definitely a dearth of quality cream ales on the market. This one helps fill that void, but Iíd like to see more breweries tackle this style.

Bomber. An orange amber beer that is hazed and sports a golden tinted two finger head. A lot of carbonation floating up from the bottom of the Spiegelau glass. A pleasant yeasty fruit aroma with soft malts and tangerine. A mild bitterness that settles in the back of the throat in the start. Noble hops? Nice malts are more complex than in the aroma and the fruit is softer. It tastes a little hot with the alcohol coming through.

I havenít had many Cream Ales in recent years (Genesee Cream Ale years ago) but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Has some noticeable but not excessive sweetness with a very smooth mouth feel. At over 7% itís definitely full-bodied yet not heavy with the alcohol not highly notable. Wish Slumbrew would put this ale in a 12 oz. bottle when or if they go beyond marketing only in 22ís.

Thick orange pour. White head. Apricot
Crazy hoppy. I guess. Pretty fucked up. Back dreck.

Drank in tall pilsner glass poured from 220z bottle. Aroma - roasted earthy smell. Appearance - golden auburn with avg froth and carbonation. Taste - caramel and hazelnut. Palate - get some burnt caramel taste. Overall - tastes like an upgrade to a red or amber beer. A little more flavor but still not my favorite. Really good for the style though

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice and smooth. Vibrant deep orange pour. Complex taste notes in a solid malty base: cream, some citrus (orange?) sweetness, and a bit of hoppy kickness. Perhaps a toffee note or two as well. Creamy mouthfeel and lingering notes. Very enjoyable.

Shared by BigSexy410. Thanks Ben.
The beer is bright orange and mostly clear, sporting a small white head that leaves some good lacing on the tulip. The aroma brings floral notes, malt, cream. Wow, the cream character really comes through in the flavor. Vanilla and cream soda notes. Soft and smooth on the palate. I would definitely have this again.

Weíve got lots of cream flavor here with a solid hops foundation. Thereís some autumn grasses here, definitely has a pilsner pop with a malt foundation. Getting lots of toffee and caramel in the body. Reminds me of a rich cream soda.
