I had this at Asheville Brew & View as a third choice (the other two beers taking the night off). It wasn’t exactly the best cream ale I’ve ever had, but it wasn’t half bad. It had a well presented vanilla taste to it. Try Wexford or Genesee instead, if you have the chance.
Pours a hazy light gold with a white head. Notes of cereal, wheat, florals, straw, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Clean and funky. Nice, fresh take on a cream ale. Bacchus66 (212) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2017

Clear gold with a white head that falls quickly to nothing a all.
The aroma is lightly sweet grain and malt.
The flavor is sweet and creamy. No real hops here.OK. Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2016
This thing just lays there. It pours pale yellow with a quick, crackling head and average carbonation. The aroma is like a slightly sweeter adjunct lager. Corn, rice, etc. Maybe some wheat. A little bit of sugar seems to be a presence on the flavor. I didn’t hate it. There isn’t much going on here, but it isn’t bad. jcr (2692) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2016

12 ounce can - $2.00 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.
Appearance: Slips from the can a reasonably clear, yellow-tinged body with, well, no real head formation despite some active effervescence.
Smell: A little bit sweet-scented on the nose with the expected corn-derived accents backed by a bit of malts and a faint, faint hint of fruitiness.
Taste: Sweetish in taste, with a flavor reminiscent of Corns Pops with a honeyed sweetness. Minimal citrus accent and a subdued hint of spice, with a low overall bitterness. Semi-dry, soft finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s fine (for a cream ale)! BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Pours a very crisp clear pale color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is fruity, malty, crisp, hay, corn. Taste is sweet and thin, corn, hay, and malt. Very clean beer, slightly more favorable than most of the style, not bad. BiereLuc (1275) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Jaune paille, peu mousseuse, peu effervescente. Nez minéral, avec des notes peu convaincantes de maïs. Ça ressemble à une Sleeman Cream Ale. C’est bien (puisque la Sleeman a déjà gagné des prix dans sa catégorie), mais rien ne la laisse se démarquer outre sa canette relativement jolie. Ce produit demeure une bière de soif avec un branding qui laisse croire à de plus fortes aspirations.
