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.

Pretty near worthless. I don’t know why some brewers are out to make a buck producing these types of beers.

deyholla (11605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2012
On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a nice combination of pine and citrus hops backed nicely by a sweet cream note. Flavor has more of a cream note with notes of citrus and pine hops.

hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and peach-colored with a small white head. The aroma is reminiscent of Nestlé Nestea - black tea and lemon - with a smidge of tea biscuit. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is refreshing, grainy and balanced nicely. There are notes of black tea, honey and biscuit here. Crisp, dry finish. Inoffensive. Cleanly-brewed, but boring. Bottle courtesy of Bvery!

drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
8/10/12. 12oz bottle from cbfobes. Lightly hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Sweet citrus and grapefruit aroma with bits of bread and toast. Lightly bready and toasty flavor with a solid citrusy hop presence. Not bad for what it is!

3.6
Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bonus courtesy of GhostFace. The 12oz bottle pours clear copper with gold edges and white head. The mild aroma delivers a thin mix of sweet citrus hard candy and a malt breadiness. The taste has some sweet malts running into a modest level of earthy to citrus hop bitterness and then a mild earthy tea like sensation. Nice Pale Ale like hoppiness.
