COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This well balanced, light colored ale is filtered to be crisp and clean while retaining the smoothness that the name cream ale suggests. Note: Also marketed as a pilsner for the contract brew Ithaki Petros Pilsner.

With this, I complete my conquest of all Stone Cat beers. 2003 bottle. Hmm, they say filtered but there is some sediment at the bottom. Vibrant orange color, light copper, big white head. Aroma of sour yeast, bitter plasticy, piney hops? It smells like their IPA, and I cant quite place that aroma. It is sour, its almost sweet and plasticy. Soured milk perhaps? Is that their secret? Just kidding. Flavor starts out with a good amount of honey and pilsner like malts. Smooth body, low, pleasing carbonation. Medium, but not thin. Finishes with some very light fruit esters, more of that funky sour/bitterness. After drinking this, I want to just mail it out to everyone just because I believe it is so remarkable how strange it is. Not bad though, not bad at all. Where I have found this love for cream ales is beyond me.

2004 draught. Golden with a light orange tint, mildly hazy and a large white head. Aroma of light grains, hay, spicy german hops and a hint of honey and almonds. Flavor is both sweet and sour, mixing well with the hops providing a good fresh spiciness. Touch of yeast apparency, and a good medium body. Not terribly crisp on the finish and a bit too sweet even with a even smooth body, but Id actually prefer it be more crisp and light to get in a bit more of the hops bite. Ends dry, earthy and yeasty.

Pour is a slightly cloudy blonde with a HUGE HUGE white head. Annoyingly big. Aroma is kinda funky--smells like sour apples and a touch of skunk. I didnt know this was a cream ale, wish they would have mentioned it. Start is very carbonated. Sweetness in the middle. Finish is smooth and malty.

Slighty hazy amber body, little head. Very nice aroma of butterscotch. Smooth palate with flavor mostly comprised of a creamy maltiness, then finishes with a dry, slighty bitter note.

Amazingly, I'm the first RBeerian to rate this fine brew. Drunk from a snifter, you get quite a bit of the sourness in the nose, but the first sip further reveals its complexity. Considerable bitterness up front but little in the aftertaste. Medium malt body with noticeable citrus qualities. Cream ale? I don't think so.
