COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the first trial of a Cream Ale that has an infusion of hops added to it in the lagering stage. We are trying to create a beer where the aroma and flavor are very hop forward, yet the finish remains smooth and non-bitter.

Pours hazy straw color with very little head. Aromas are grain, caramel, and yeast. Very smooth lager-like flavor without much bitterness despite the supposed hop infusion. Pleasant enough for what it is.

12oz bottle bought at Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay, consumed en route to the UP. Another thirst-quenching, less than creamy cream ale that tastes like an inoffensive mild brewpub APA, lacking in character but still one step up from a sweet US lager.

Light amber. hay, floral aromas. Medium body, smooth silky palate. Moderate hops, crisp and dry. Unexciting yet drinkable brew and very forgettable.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a cloudy golden orange with an average white head. Aroma of grain, yeast, and citrus. Taste is malt, grain, lemon, yeast, and a bit of pine. Pretty good.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours gold with a medium sized white head. Not much aroma. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is very mild, neither hops nor malt dominated. Light flavor of breads and grains comes forth, not much hops or bitterness. Similar to a farmhouse ale-very mild. Only an OK beer for me. Pairs well with deli sandwiches.

Moderately hazy orange with a soapy head. Has an earthy aroma of barley, yeasts and hops. Flavors include mild piney hops, yeasts and barley. Body is rather heavy and the carbonation is moderate. The hops are more resin than anything else and makes the flavor more bitter than desired

Aurelius (5215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2013
Brisk, hoppy, lemony golden ale aroma. Clear, gold, big fluffy head; good label, twistoff longneck. Wow, this pulled the switcheroo - the hops are very prominent in the aroma, but the bitterness is a lot more muted. Lemon zest, low acidity, fairly simple, solid lawnmower beer. Medium body, not overly carbonated, quick lemony finish. ABC, Betton.

JennyJam (47) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Orange, yellow and hazy with a small head. Aroma has a bit of cereal or grass with some slight floral hop bitterness. Taste is sweet and ends with slight bitterness and finishes pretty dry. Body is deliciously creamy and smooth. This one may be a work in progress, but I thoroughly enjoyed the fusion of creamy and hoppy, very drinkable and memorable. However, A bit more bitterness may be in order.

dekester1 (361) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a nice mid-gold with some cloudiness with a fine bubble head with a slow fade to lacing. Aroma was of fruity, floral hops with a malt sweetness in the background. Taste has a mid-hop, floral bitterness throughout with a malt and grain backbone. Palate was decent. Overall, a decent cream ale, although in some ways it tastes more like a pilsner.
