3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Cloudy pale orange color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of toasted malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nearly empty, grainy aroma moves into a creamy lager feel...A little fat and lactic, not much flavor, but nonetheless well-done...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 Pours coppery with a whiet head. Smells fruity with some peppery elements splashed in. Tastes malty and fruity with some nice spicy tinges. One of the better samples I had while here. Full mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw golden body wears an honest white film. Lightly floral aroma, smooth, citrusy. Decent hop-malt balance, but at such low level of intensity, this doesn’t impress. The malts are grainy and have a raw barley feel to them. Nevertheless, it gets fairly bitter towards the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours much darker than expected, it’s almost amber in color with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with a little bit of corn and caramel. A little yeast note in the unfiltered version they served along side the regular version. The flavor is pretty similar to the nose, but the unfiltered version is a little softer and fruitier, lessening the corn influence tasted in the filtered version. Mouthfeel is pretty similar, a touch clingy and thick with a soft fizzy carbonation level. Maybe a touch softer feel from the unfiltered version. Overall, a little bit bland and boring. A little heavier on the sweetness and darker malts than I prefer in a Cream Ale.

Fair sweet malty aroma with mild buttery diacetyl. Clear, bright golden body is topped by low white head that recedes to ring. Grainy malt flavour with some butterscotch and light finishing bitterness. Creamy smooth texture with low carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #41. Small tap sample at the brewpub. Clear pale golden, touch of lasting head...very lightly fruity, bit of DMS...light, sweet, creamy body, very full and smooth, bit apple-touched. Top-notch for the style.
