COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Taps, amber-red color, with a beige head, light toasted, caramel malt, metallic nose with a hint of soapy detergent for cleaning tank, and a subtle fruitiness aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet grainy, toasty, biscuity, caramel malt, fruity, ripe apple character, with a faint cookie dough, spicy nutmeg flavour, and a faint nutty accent, leading towards a toasty, caramel malt sweetness, and a lingering hop bitterness finish.

j12601 (7248) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2009
On tap at Taps on Queens in Niagara Falls. Pours a crimson hued light brown with a medium sized white head. Loads of caramel, light malt, and a bit of toast and maple. Medium bodied, creamy, with some cream soda flavors coming through. Finishes up with a light dry bitterness. Best of the first four Iíve had.

Bejaaamin (115) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
very hazy orange/light brown, massive head that lingers. apples, bread yeast, orange, somewhat unpleasant nose. something chemical. medium carbonation, weak flavour profile. mouthfeel is generally good, yet the flavours are really hampering this experiance for me. again something chemical, slightly metalic, apples. no, not at all digging this.

olsvammel (3701) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2009
It poured a cloudy dark amber liquid with a big foam that left a nice lacing. The smell was a bit weak but I could sense malt, bread, hint of nuts, meath brooth and something sweet. It also had a weak taste with some malt, bread, hint of meat brooth and someting sweet. Easy to drink with a low bitterness. However slightly accidic at the end.

DerWeg (1535) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Starts off kind of a cute cottage beer - cheery orange-red pour, forward flavors and aromas of slighly tangy ale-fruits and fresh yeast. Nods to english style. Caramelly. Turns kind of malt-extract-like later in the glass, with a clingy sweetness that wrecks the finish a little. Feels a bit soapy, the hops donít express well. Under-attenuated sugars? A little bit Home-kit like. Not a repeat. Is cute to look at though.

AWS9 (517) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Can. Ugh, itís like theyíve mixed coke with a cream ale. Way too tangy and sweet. This was pretty disgusting.

Strangebrewer (938) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2009
Can. Poured red-amber with creamy head. Tart apple aroma. Medium mouthfeel, tangy malty. Medium bitter finish that lasts til the next sip. Not as smooth as other cream ales Iíve tried.

EatsTacos (14) - , Yukon, CANADA - JAN 17, 2009
Pours a dark amber red with a one finger creamy head. Some lacing. The smell is very one dimensional malt which is sweet and sugary. Not an overly complex or enticing aroma. The taste is way too sweet from start to finish. There is almost no hop character to the beer, but the malt isnt complex enough to carry the taste like a brown ale or scotch ale. Quite strange. Very unbalanced. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with a pretty low carbonation. Kind of feels flat in the mouth. The sweetness is too much and makes this beer pretty undrinkable. I could barely finish the can, let alone have another. Add some more damn hops

Oakes (13065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Reddish colour. Caramelly, earthy nose with a light blackberry fruitiness. Soft, clean, lightly caramelly palate is lightly fruity.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Draught @ Winking Judge. Clear, red, with small white head. Blackberry, tobacco, and cherries in the nose. Weird cherry pit bitterness at the end. Strange but drinkable.
