Crisp, fresh and beautiful color. Lacey finish to the bottom of the glass. Holding it up to the window to check color is a soft delicate golden hue. This a hot day type of beer yet. However, it is a great ale for dinner.

Sweet sugar cookie malt backbone, very thin with some vanilla, caramel, and spice. pootzboy (1779) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2008
Clouded gold with a decent head, good lacing.
Fruity esters and yeast mustiness over a grainy tome in the aroma.
Flavor is mild but pleasant, light fruityness, some earthiness, passive but adequate hopping...dry sour finish.
Decent...but the Cream ale style is uniquely Canadian and I’ve yet to see a US Micro match the cream ales from Quebec. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2008
12 oz bottle. Foggy brass with a white haze. Nose is pear, peach and vanilla yoghurt. Crisp with a lactic tang. Taste like the nose with bread and a squirt of citrus. Aftertaste a bit metallic and vegetal. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle, courtesy riversideAK. A nice copper pour, with a thick creamy white head and very sticky lacing. About as appetizing as a beer can look. Grainy malt aromas, with a slight hoppiness. Raisin and caramel are distant. Subdued overall. Flavor packs a great punch. Hops and malts work together in perfect harmony. Subtle caramel and molasses feels light and delicious. Watery body, extremely easy to drink. Very balanced and crisp, enjoyable at any time. Pleasantly surprised with this one, wish I could get a sixer every week.

Sample tray. Light gold. Soft white head. Light malt scent with a hint of vanilla. Fizzy, almost foamy mouth feel. Bit of hops, soap and just a touch of vanilla in the flavour. Woody bitterness in the finish. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Pours light amber with a small white head. Doughy flavor, herbal/veggie hop finish. Hops are meek, enough to balance and give a light foral note to the lingering malts, clean but not all that crisp. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with André. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a quick dissolving white head that leaves behind a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of cloves, earthy spice and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly smooth, some carbonation with flavors of bread malt with a touch of allspice and herbs. Finish is slightly metallic with a malt and clove aftertaste that lingers after the finish. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bottle from Belmont Station--Poured a clear soapy golden yellow boldy with a quickly dissipating white head. Herbal, creamy nose. Mildly metallic and rich. Bready and smooth. A good example of the style with a hoppy twist to it. robforbes (2256) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2007
