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!

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.

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

Draft at the Tap- Gold, creamy white head. Soft fresh fruity and grassy tones sit on just a hint of spice. Grassy flavors balance on touches of spice and tropical fruit. Light bodied, soft carbonation, crisp fruity finish. Did I drink the same beer as everyone else? This beer was very well done for a cream ale. Perfect to pair up with some good pub grub...

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Pored from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a clear gold with a finger of white foamy head ans some slight lacing. The smell is light with some sweet malts and some hints of citrus fruits. A little bit of hops is detachable. The taste is a bit sweet, with a creamy, smooth malt flavor. The is a slight hop flavor in the background that does come out but only slightly to bitter the taste up just a bit. The feel of this beer is light to medium with some nice light feel on the pallet. It goes down really easy and does not have much of an aftertaste.

Spare head, average lacing, clear light amber. Good, citrusy hops aroma. Light body, moderate sweetness, light bitter finish. A good session beer.

Has a bready aroma with a touch of fruitiness. Medium milky amber color. Begins soft then feel a mild bitterness. Has a creamy mouth feel. Has a nice finish and very refreshing.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2005
On draught at the brewery January 2005. Pale gold-copper ale, with light yellow tints and a small white head. Aroma of honey, light base malt grains and a touch of yeast, ever so light. Has a medium-light body, quite refreshing, with even some light crispness from the hops. Lightly sweet body, decent dose of malt and just tremendously drinkable. Another wonderful session (been having a lot of those lately). Some light esters from the yeast, with a smooth creamy consistency and a bit of a drying sensation on the end from the hops, though it remains mostly malty. A good deal of wateriness, but not anything out of place for the style.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2010
12oz bottle. Murky golden pour is brown around the edges. Spicy, cinnamon and white sugar nose, cherry and almond, almost like a cinnamon roll. Creamy flavor — no, seriously, I’m not just saying that because it is a "cream" ale — going along with that whole cinnamon roll thing. I can’t imagine dessert was the intention here but I’ll be god-damned if it doesn’t taste like one.

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.

12 oz bottle. Dark golden pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and faint vanilla. Nice creamy mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Taste of vanilla, sweet malt, floral hops with a lasting finish. Nice session ale.
