Enjoyed this cream ale in both a glass and a bottle. Sure wish it wereaavailable in SOCAL. 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. vegasron (5) - sANDPOINT, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2008 does not count
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.

thick creamy white head and tons of lacing. The nose is a light fresh hop note with a dry lagerery aroma flavor is alight fresh hoppiness and a dry malty, body. Finishes long and drawn out this is my style of beer limalimamoli (52) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 15, 2006
True representation of An ACA just like the little kings ale of old.Aroma: Faint malt notes. A sweet, corn-like aroma Appearance: Pale straw Brilliant, sparkling clarity.
Flavor: Low hop bitterness. Low maltiness and sweetness, varying with gravity and attenuation. Well attenuated. Neither malt nor hops prevail in the taste. Mouthfeel: Generally light and crisp, although body can reach medium. Smooth mouthfeel with medium to high attenuation; higher attenuation levels can lend a “thirst quenching” finish. High carbonation.
Overall Impression: A clean, well-attenuated, flavorful American lawnmower beer.

Liked it good enough by the bottle to bring it into my restaurant and it’s way better on tap!
I respectfully disagree skoisirius.
Coming from the land of Hale’s Cream Ale (nitro) this is a pleasant change. I’ve been happy to put down my usual pint of Stone IPA for this one until the keg blows. Met the Owner/Brewmaster Fred. Friendly enough fellow with some fine brews from right here in Idaho! Looking forward to the IPA on Tap!

Pours a hazy amber with a huge white head that sticks around. Smells of fruit, some light malt, grassy. Tastes spicy with lightly dry malt and some nice hints of perfumy hops. Great, full bodied finish with some spicy hints and peppery splashes. Excellent! beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Sampled 10/21/2008. This Cream Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet with a touch of floral hops. A medium bodied cream ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. It has the kind of yeasty creamy mouthfeel. This is a very nicely done cream ale. Best cream ale I have had in long time. Light and refreshing. Crisp and clean. Good summer beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle from Belmont. What a shot to the nose/teeth! Smells like potent peach jam! Tastes of the same with the added bonus of sour ale and lima beans. Just flat-out strange. Like no cream ale I have had. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Maybe because I just reffed 3 soccer games in the hot sun but this beer really did it for me. Nice looking cloudy yellow with a nice lacing head. Aroma of lemon, orange, malt. Ice cold flavor was sour with a great dry finish and wonderful after taste. Great summer beer.
