750 ml pours a dark apricot with fizzy white head. Caramel sugar and wheat taste. DialSquare (5186) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2013
750ml bottle that I picked up at some point on Hunahpu day (so... no idea where I got it). Yellow-gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is cider, grain, dough, grapefruit. Tastes are caramel, honey, floral, candied sugar, light pepper and spices, little acidity, citrus. Feels boozy, but covers it well in the taste. Leaves a soapy acidic vibe. Overall, better than I expected (not sure why I wasn’t expecting much w/ CC - guess it was the cream ale in the title). Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Draught at the Pony Bars Cigar City Event NYC sept 2012. Clear amber beer with a white small head. Fruity and honey aroma. Fruity, honey and maybe some vanilla notes flavour. mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of iced tea, some earthy notes, and a little sweetness. Flavour brings out notes of iced tea, earthy hops, a little sweetness and some light alcohol notes. Quite full-bodied and flavourful for a cream ale, with all notes in harmony. Very enjoyable for a style I’m not usually fond of. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle: Amberish, thin white sudsy head, little lacing. Mealy nose, somewhat of a sweet melon. Mealy start, malty, fruity, big melon notes. Similar on the tongue. A bit sticky and very bready. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Mealy and fruity finish. Not sure what to make of this one. Certainly a sweet malty beer, fruity, with lots of melon. Okay I guess, but almost too much at first.

From the bottle. This was pretty good for a cream ale. Flavors of butterscotch, caramel, cream. Almost like drinking a cream soda with vanilla added. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Very light tangerine and alcohol aroma, but not much else. Cloudy amber with a large off-white head, thick lacing. Weird bittersweet malt flavor. Medium body. After repeated disappointment with Cigar City, I think I’m done trying their beers. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Light tangerine and alcohol aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with larger off-white head. Sweet orange malt and bitter orange peel and alcohol flavor. Not horrible but nothing here that I particularly enjoy. kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2012
