COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. It’s malty, very mildly hopped, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor. A cool beer for the heat, whatever your latitude!

On tap it has a reddish amber color in the glass. Aroma of sweetness, maybe some toffee. There is also some floral notes. Taste is smooth with a creamy texture. I tasted some vanilla and caramel in the finish.

This is a truly unique brew. On tap @ the Brass Rail pured an amber body topped by a small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel and lots of vanilla extract coming through. Watery light-medium body with a light acidity.

This beer looks great coming out of the can/bottle, but what reall gets you is the hay and grassy notes initally. It has a good creamy head that quickly goes away but leaves some nice lace. It is a medium bodied beer; I would say a little thick. good but not quite as Summery as I was expecting, definetly worth a try.

Pour on tap at Nessun Dorma, dark copper red with fluffy white head, aroma has a surprising cream aroma, a sweet lactose sugar, toffee, nuts, grainy notes, hints of slight floral notes. Taste is sweet cream and lactose, some dark sugars with caramel, toffee, slight earth, nuts and almonds, touch of grassy, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Single can. Copper with OK head. Malty aroma with interesting dark spice and maple touch. Body and flavour are a little strong for summer. More like a sweet winter warmer. A touch on the syrupy side, thick malt and more maple than spice.

Sweet on the nose like bread dough and a bit light on esters on my first try. First sip comes across creamy and smooth and ends with a carmel sweetnesss. Out of the can and poured to a light head. This is a very easy drinking beer where you don’t want a hoppier Ale.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Aroma is very faint grass and a creamy sweetness. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Taste is sort of like cream soda at first with the ever so slightest bitterness at the end. Feels creamy and really coats your mouth.

One of the few cream beers out there. Has a magnificent taste, and is best served in a glass from a can.

From a can. Tasted a little like Cream Soda mixed with beer. OK, but a little sweet for my liking

3.2
rdixon77 (2761) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Orange-amber color with a thin head. Aroma was a sweet citrus with the wheaty background. The taste was a sweet butterscotch with a hint of citrus and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. Kind of like a spiked cream soda. Decent stuff for a summer beer, though you could probably find some better summer fare.
