This beer was extremely creamy with a fantastic palate. Low carbonation and not much flavor, but still very drinkable.

Poured a clear amber-red with a creamy offwhite head. Aromas of scotch and caramel malts. Taste is a bit watery and quite bitter. A good amount of creamyness complements the hops. A little light but not bad.

3.5

20101011 Nitro at Wharf Rat. Simple, clean, mildly (surprisingly) hoppy session ale with lingering bready notes. Better than I expected. Pleasantly airy body despite the nitro tap. Well done.

3.3
EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap at Pratt St. Ale House. Clear yellow-orange pour with a thick silky white head. Slight cereal aroma with some grassy hops. Creamy flavor, light cereal with a light hop finish.

ben4321 (6678) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Location: Nitro draft (on the menu as "smooth pour") at the Pratt Street Ale House, 9/6/09, under the name "Coventry Cream Ale"

Aroma: Nose has some citrus, some nice vanilla, earthiness
Appearance: Amber color, creamy and lasting head, lots of coating lace
Flavor: Some creamy vanilla, citrus hops, a very tasty beer
Palate: Creamy mouthfeel, smooth, nice amount of body
Overall Impression: This was one of the better beers I tried at the Pratt Street brewery. A very good cream ale (which is what I think this should be categorized as). A beer I enjoyed quite a bit.

3.3
Dogbrick (13554) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub (as "Coventry Cream Ale". This beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a medium and creamy white head that dissipates slowly. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild hops and earthy malt. Light and creamy body with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and a touch of sweet fruit. The finish is smooth and mildly hoppy with a sweet malt aftertaste. Above average overall.
