4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
