Our newest product, Taps Red Cream Ale is beginning to rival our Premium Lager in popularity with our customers. It is a delicious, full-bodies ale with a clear, beautiful red colour. Cream ale is made by using ale yeast fermented and conditioned at colder temperatures. The colder temperature causes a slower, more gradual fermentation, resulting in a smoother flavour. Our Red Cream Ale has a full-bodies silky texture that is crisp and strong in flavour, with a fresh, clean finish.

Draft. Red body like their IPA. The aroma is not strong, but pleasant. Sweet malts. The taste is weak but blanaced. There’s some nuts.

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2015
Draught, 5% @ Syndicate, Niagara Falls. Pours hazy reddish amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with bready touches and notes of hops and yeast. Sweetish, malty and bready flavour with bitterish, hoppy notes and acetic touches. Bitterish and estery aftertaste. Well, not that bad, but a less bready version would be better. 090715.

On tap at Taps. Caramalt aroma with a hint of hops. Smooth caramel taste with good balance. Perfectly fine but a bit plain.

chucklemation (926) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Poured on tap at Taps. An amber ale. Smells somewhat of caramel. Has a creamy and smooth feel, though lacks a very distinct flavor. Not too memorable, but decent.

Bendrixian (1370) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Clear brew with a burnt wood/auburn colour. Aroma of malts, biscuit, caramel and slight roast. There is also a fair amount of yeasty notes in the brew. On the palate it proves to be medium bodied, creamy texture and has a fast finish. Sociable beer with a flavour that is lightly roasted.

Such a wonderful refreshing beer. Pours a copper red with a large white head. Nutty aroma, with a strong caramel malty nose as well. Low spicy hop aroma as well. Tastes of caramel malt and a little spicy hop flavor as well. Balanced toward malty. Wonderful beer.

Had it from a tap at Taps Brewery in Niagara Falls - nothing really to write about. Just there.
