We brewed this Special High Gravity Cream Ale in serious celebration of the return of the salubrious Spring... With the long dark days of the Season of Damp nearly behind us and the possibilities of a long languid Summer ahead.

Aroma: Really different nose, not something I can compare to anything I’ve tried recently.
Appearance: Poors a nice orange color, with a lasting creamy head.
Flavor: Taste is sweet and hoppy, certainly worth a drink.

2/1/09 - Bottle. Pours orange/amber with eggshell, foamy head, dissipating to a lacing foam. Lovely nose of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Sweet and tasty, caramel, toffee, brown sugar with a solid bitter and hop flavor. A nice little barley wine type thing.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
a- pours a light orange hue, two fingers of creamy white head, large and active particles with good lacing throughout s- nose is dominated by sweet citrus hops (mostly orange), some subtle pine and grass tones t- surprisingly bitter hoppiness for a cream ale, but nicely balanced with smooth malts, warming alcohol sensation, bitter and lasting aftertaste m- medium-bodied, slightly oily with lively carbonation d- i found this to be a strong, hoppy beer that is uncharacteristic of this genre, fairly smooth, but I wouldn’t drink more than a few in a sitting

Light amber in color with a decent head. Very much like an IPA more than a cream ale. Hoppy with some citrus. Crisp with some slight caramel.

Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Sampled at the Second Cellar Reduction. 12 oz bottle. Clear orange pour with wispy white thin head. Honey with a hint of spruce aroma. Flavor is semi-sweet grain, some alcohol, and floral hops. Medium syrupy body with medium carbonation. Piney hop finish. I was very pleasantly suprised with this one.

Cloudy amber, with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, with some hop (grass, spicy, light citrus), sweet caramel, and slight alcohol. Taste is alcohol, sweet caramel, nice bitterness and lightly hoppy aftertaste.
