Lagerboy (2057) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
473 ml can. Clear orange copper, fading off-white foam. Muted fruity caramel aroma. Taste is slightly fruity, blander biscuity malt and not much else. Soft carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

reebtogi (5948) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
473ml can pours a pale golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and toasted grains with some citrus and grass. Taste is a light fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a nice brew for the style. Balanced and flavourful.

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
Tap at MSBC. Amber, clear. Very little head on top. Nose has grains and a lot of fruitiness. Taste has nutty and toasty malts, some light hopping. Pretty simple brew overall, but not a big fan of this one.

mcberko (15439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
On tap at Mission Springs, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of light caramel sweetness, some cream soda and crackery malt. Boring and a little too sweet. Not a fan.

blomster (288) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pours clear, golden. Served without a head. Aroma of bready malt, fruit. Smooth, creamy flavor, medium bodied, soft carbonation. Not bad...but not really good either...

fiulijn (19831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy deep blond color. The aroma is mild, malty and with light fruitness from the Ale yeast. The flavor is not bad, light malt, maybe more boring. Correct bitterness. Easy.

My first clue that this bottle was off: the neck was empty. However, my hopes remained alive when I heard the Psst! as the top was popped off.... but no, it was a cidery vinegary mess in the end. too bad, Ill have to give this another chance I guess.

I eat at the Mission Springs resturant regularly and almost always order the Cream Ale if I get it in a cold frosted glass. IMHO they dont serve it cold enough. It tastes better cold. I find the aroma is quite promising although theres not much of a head. The taste starts out well but ends up kind of "flat" and "thin". Its like theres potential there but something is missing. Still... its a helluva lot better than Canadian big brewery beers.
