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!

(12oz. bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, caramel, vanilla, toffee, and whip cream. Flavor of caramel malt, toasted grain, candy corn, and cream soda.

j12601 (13034) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a mostly clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Sweet and grainy, with some fruit. Somewhat odd smelling. Medium bodied and creamy, cream and caramel. A little bit sweet and toasty. Sweet finish with a bit of cereal and grains and some fruit leather.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium and clear copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, nuts, and light vanilla. Thinner body. Hard one to figure out.

3.2
Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
A cream ale with some attitude, a definite fruitiness, though the finish is a bit odd. Sweetish with creamy orangey colour and good foamy ice cream head.

"a simple, but tasty summer brew. the summer and winter seasonals are the least complex and easiest to make brews that AV makes, but they are both nice. hardly any hops, light bodied, smooth as hell with a creamy creamy finish and aroma."

BVery (11238) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy light copper with minimal head. Nice aroma of sweet malt and spice. Taste is thin, caramel, spice, and bread.

3.8
hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 Bottle... Clear, copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Rich, malty aroma of IBC cream soda with a hint of spice and toffee. Well-balanced flavor. Tastes a bit like IBC cream soda without any cloying sweetness... bigtime vanilla in both the nose and flavor. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Malty, then lightly bitter finish. Rich, but refreshing. I’m a fan.

3.4
daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Amber pour with a foamy, mostly white head. Aroma is faint and has some malty, honey notes. Flavor is certainly creamy, a bit sweet, and has a flavor of honey mixed with an artificial sweetener. Interesting if not a bit odd.

3.4
DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Perhaps the darkest cream ale I’ve encountered. Copper hue with aroma of bready malt spice, hopcit, with lemon as the primary citrus element. Tastes full-vodied for a cream or summer ale, with hints of bready malt, lemongrass, hops, spice (black pepper), and fruit. Nice complexity and wonderful balance. I bought a bottle of this at State Line in Elkton, MD, and I hope they have more when I return this weekend. God, It’s great to have relatives around the DE/MD border!!

3.7
cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a copper appearance with a decent size head. Actually one of the better cream ales that I have tasted.
