COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. Its 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!

Bottle: pours light brown with large creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with some cola and light peach. Flavor is mildly sweet with a soft ceamy caramel, malt, cola, and vanilla. Palate is silky and lightly sweet but rather thin especially at the end. Overall this makes for a good hot weather beer easy drinking not too thick.

Copper pour with thick white head and lots of lacing. A little to carbonated for my liking. Aroma is very pleasant, malty and unique. Flavor is much of the same, smooth creamy a la cream soda and well balanced. It is a little deserty but still extremely drinkable. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, creamy sweet and malty but very drinkable and unique.

Great silky smooth taste. Would be good for drinking with desserts, particularly waffles.

Pours a dark copper with a thin tan head. Aroma is semi-sweet with possibly some malt. The taste is rather bland to me but the texture is pretty interesting. Its light and creamy. I get the velvety description. Unfortunately the flavor just comes across as a very mild brown ale to me. Unimpressive.

Dark yellow/amber with minimal white head. Number one aroma, for whatever reason, is angel food cake. Smooth, sweet, little bitterness. Pleasant&drinkable.

Drank from a can. Nice aroma with a nice frothy head coming from the top of the can. Very flavorful but the spices are not too overpowering, letting a nice malty taste doo the work. Very enjoyable!

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and a very faint note of grass. Taste is sweet with a smooth and creamy mouth feel. Overall this is perfectly suited for a night outside.

Bottle. Nice dark copper pour with a frothy creamy head. Not a lot on the nose but some malty goodness is there. Creamy and sweet flavor in the taste. Cream soda with an alcohol bite, well carbonated. A real summer favorite of mine.
