This is to me the Cadillac of Cream Ales. I live about 25 miles away from the Pelican Pub & Brewery where this fine ale is brewed. This is the brew that started it all for me I must say. This is what made me a fan of cream ales. Here is my review:
Apperance: The appearance was a very light golden color. The carbonation was perfect adding several bubble trails shooting up to a very nice bleach white one finger head. Typical of cream ales this was a very light look.
Smell: The smell was perfect. Not to bitter or strong. Just right.
Taste: Now this is where this brew stood out for me. The taste was alive when you drank it. There was no lingering aftertaste and dare I say tasted as if the Beer Gods helped create this brew.
Mouthfeel: If you could drink from a chalace in Vallhala, and take some of the drink back to earth...the mouthfeel would be less than this brew
Drinkablility: This brew is the best Cream Ale on the West Coast I would be willing to bet. I have ordered many pints of this ale and have never been disappointed, ever. I would recommend this to anyone, including enemies.
Sadly, the only drawback to this ale, if there is one, has nothing to do with the brew, but the distribution. The Pelican Pub & Brewery in Pacific City Oregon has pulled all distribution locations and only sells this crafted brew at their Pub and through mailorder. Good for me but not good for those wanting to pick up a bottle.

My wife really loves this beer, I like it very much myself. Since it is brewed on the coast and we love the coast this makes for a great combination. We have only tried it in a bottle so far. We need to head over to Pacific City and try it on tap! JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Sometimes a beer can be perfect in the moment. This is one of those times. We finally had some nice weather today, I worked like 13 hours today. But this beer is just right.
Pours a cloudy golden in color with a quickly lasting fluffy white head. Fruity, floral hop aroma is very appealing. Though light in body, the taste leaps with peachy fruitiness, grassy hops, tiny pine, and a dry finish. A+ for the tingly mouthfeel. This is a fantastic brewery and this is a great session-type brew.
