3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro pour, clear pale gold body. No hops and a very white bread but not husky. Could be a pinch less sweet but I like it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On nitro tap at Sockeye Pub & Grill, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out sweet cereal malts and biscuity notes. Sweet and restrained but boring as hell. It’s a cream ale after all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Perfect cream ale. Hazy golden body with long lasting creamy head. Velvety mouthfeel, slightly sweet aroma and taste. One of their better brews.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery - Not sure what to think about this one. Perfumy hop nose, with hints of citrus fruits. Simple maltiness, with a creamy mouthfeel, light bitterness in the finish. Not sure where they were going with this one, it kind of misses the mark.

Sockeye Brewers Whim Cream Ale 8 3 13 4 7 35
3/7/08 on draught at the brewpub. Aroma is faintly hop dominant, but light in all aromas. Appearance is clear yellow gold with a well maintained white head. Flavor is low on sweetness with faint corny malt, although it uses no corn and slightly more dominant noble hop bittering. Mouthfeel is light with medium creaminess and very low carb feel. Overall, simple and easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2007 Draft: Re-rate. Color was this pure blonde/golden color with a thick white head that lasts and lasts. Taste is a medium intensity with fruit tones, sweet malt, and very light hop bitters. Very creamy texture coats the mouth well. Better the second time around.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
On Tap at brewpub: A clear gold brew with a white, ultra-fizzy head which made for clingy lacing. Pretty, really . . . Aromas of perfume, sweet spices and lotion. I tasted a bit of hops as well as saddle leather. The aftertaste was too fruity for me. But smooth as velvet . . .

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 On Tap at the brewpub
Light golden, slightly hazy with the expected thin but dense "lid" of a head dues to the nitrous. Pale and soft in the aroma and flavor as well. Very light on the hops and while uninspiring, interesting and quafable.
