COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award-winning cream ale is delicious light ale with plenty of flavor. Ferments warm for a fruity nose and then stored cold for a crisp, dry finish. This is one nicely balanced beer. A great introduction to what we do!

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2009
12oz brown bottle purchased at the Liquor Shop in Tyngsborro, Mass. Pours a crystal-clear light amber body with nearly an inch of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Caramel and biscuit with hints of citrussy hops characterize the aroma. Tastes biscuity and husky, with hints or caramel and just the slightest bite from citrussy hops on the finish. Light in body with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. A solid cream ale, and something I could see drinking plenty of on a hot summer day.

puboflyons (2043) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Pours from the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no obvious lot code or expiration date. The pour is a slightly hazy honey yellow with almost no head to speak of. The aroma is a pleasing scent of sweet malts. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is of sweet roasted malts, a little fruity, and slightly dry. I found it to be an enjoyable brew.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear gold with a white head. Sweet fruit and grain nose, mild floral. Well carbonated. Flavor follows. Eh.

Pours bright gold into a shaker. Sickly head quickly recedes to nothing. Mild fruity malt aromas. Lightly carbonated with creamy butterscotch upfront. Dry finish.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Cloudy pale yellow color, with a white head. Sweet caramel smell. Sweet taste with some butterscotch in it. Tastes like a Wearther’s original kind of. Some malts in there thrown in. Medium to light body. However, this beer comes in a great box.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF08. Weak fruity aroma. Hazy golden colour. Mild flavour fruit and hay, hint of dust. Medium bitterness. Like many British cask ales, but with a good mouthfeel.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle courtesy of mreusch; thanks, Matt. Pours a hazy gold with a huge, fluffy, white head, prolific rising carbonation and sticky lace. The nose is a nice fruity and floral bouquet with a touch of candy sugar sweetness thrown into the mix. Light-bodied and thin with a dry and grainy finish. It’s a bit rough for a beer so thin. The flavor is of sweet and slightly sour citrus, bitter peach pit and a moderately grainy finish. While this brew is better than other cream ales that I’ve sampled, I do wish that the flavor was as nice as the nose.
