Hale’s Ales, with its line of “Cream Ales” was the first craft brewery in America to produce nitrogen-conditioned beers. Cream Ale has a soft texture, tasty malt and hop flavors, is nicely balanced and easy to drink. Its nitrogen conditioning produces a creamy head that is as fascinating to watch form as it is delightful to sip. 5.1% ABV 19 IBUs Hops: American Saaz Original Gravity: 12° Plato

Tastes like cream.....beautiful snowy head, thick falling bubbles when forest poured looks like a blizzard. Frothy, lil beer flavor except a weak malt thru the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 I've said it before and I'll say it again, one of my faves to just drink. I don't have to think about it. It's great, and easy to drink!

On tap at Seattle Beer Company on 1st Street downtown Seattle. Pours clear pale yellow with tiny soap bubble white head or lacing (from nitrogen). Aroma: sweet biscuit, lemon, cereal. Flavor: honey, biscuit, Corn Flakes, lactose. Mouthfeel: light-bodied with a lingering creaminess. Super drinkable in large quantities.

teamsale (317) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2016
On tap. Pours a nice white straw gradually turning to golden straw with thick white head, really cool appearance. Smells of bread and citrus. Tastes of bread and honey, a hair sour after sitting. Little flavor, little aftertaste, but overall enjoyable.

j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On nitro tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grain and a touch of toast on the nose, milk sweet. Medium bodied, soft and sweet, grainy with a light creamy note. Grain into the finish, crisp, almost a grapenut quality. Gets a touch fruity into the finish, raisins and dried apricots.

bhensonb (15965) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Tap at the brewpub. Pour sight glad with a white head. Aroma is lightly bready malt. Med body or so. Flavor is bready, possibly with a hint of citrus. Rather bland, lightly bitter, but an easy drink for lunch.

stevoj (5867) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 23, 2015
On tap at Parilla Grill. Looks like nitro without being on nitro. Velvety smooth and creamy, then goes down hill from there. Faint grainy aroma, taste is crackers and white bread. Nice mouth feel and texture to go with the look, but kind of bland overall.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear pale golden. Grainy aroma with a bit of corn. Sweetish flavor, grainy, a bit corny, with a faint fruity hint and a slightly bitterish finish. Quite light-bodied.

kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with a creamy white nitro head that had long retention. The nose is nicely bready with some light fruitiness and maybe a touch of corn. The flavor is light and bready as expected, no corn or off notes at all. Light floral hops on the back end. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a touch of light fizz. Really nice Cream Ale, I love the nitro serving method for this beer.

5oz at brewpub. Beautiful nitro head from the nitro tap. Clear macro yellow color. The nitro head sticks to me lip. Really need to work past it to figure out what the beer tastes like. Very corny, macro tasting. Tastes like minerals and not malts (rice or corn or whatever). Long cheap malt liquor aftertaste. Sticky flavors won’t leave my palate. Really good for blending with the BA lmpy Stout.
