pours a nice dark brown with an itty bitty brown head smells of generic beer
the taste is a nice simple cream ale with a med amount of carb easy to session but nothing to write home about
I’m unsure where to log in this beer on this site since my searches lead me to here. What I had was a 12-ounce bottle of Phillips Slipstream Ale, compliment of my brother in law, Dave. It was not a cream ale and the label didn’t look like this. The Slipstream Ale I had is more like an amber ale. It pours a clear copper with off-white soda-pop head and no lacing, along with some residual yeast chunks floating in the glass. Aroma: sweet malt. Flavor: malt-forward; I taste caramelized brown sugar, nuts, raisins, pepper. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied. bjmack (5) - Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2017 does not count
A solid ale reminiscent of traditional British pub ales. It has a solid brown coloration and a rich nutty flavor.

Draft at Whistler mnt. Copper color. Mild aroma, faint barley and grains. Caramal notes. Slight hazelnut. Light bodied. Average carbonation. Pretty smooth. Brettsky06 (501) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2016
Copper pour. Caramel and malty aroma. Taste is a bit nutty and very creamy. Not bad but not the best Phillips beer bdleedahl (478) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
This beer pours a very clear amber (dark or a cream). Carbonation is low, but not too low. It has a medium-full body and is nice and creamy with very little hop bitterness. There are no off-flavours, there's nothing special about this beer, but it's a nice beer.

Bottle. Medium brown. Light brown sugar nose, and a fairly simple brown malt note. solidfunk (9191) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Not a lot going on here. Some rusty copper aroma. Amber pour with good head. Tangy finish. Bottle. ryanhunter_4 (330) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
341 ml bottle poured at Lar’s place in Red Deer. Pours a copper colour with a thin, almost nonexistent white head. Not a lot of aroma; am picking up a bit of malt. Taste is a little better. Has a nutty, malty flavor but is a bit watery. Easy to drink but isn’t going to win any awards. RhetoricalAns (939) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Copper pour, weak head. Aroma is caramel, nuts. Taste has some light fruit hops but is very malt forward throughout. Interesting cream ale. sulawang (1171) - - APR 7, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Visual: Pours beer bottle brown, almost no head, barely any retention, many fast steady streams.
Nose: brown sugar caramel malts, a some biscuit/cookie as well. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp malty bite
Mid-palate: partially thin-flat mouthfeel, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel malts, light cola
Finish: light burpy, light-sweet malty super subtle bitter dry hopped finish.
Summary: Quite boring actually. Just a malty beer lacking any special characteristics.
[December 8, 2015 re-tasting]:
Nose: liquid barley malt, some cola caramel. (lvl-4)-pungency
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toasted malted barley, brown sugar, cola
Finish: malty, soft subtle bitter finish.
Summary: Premature stoppage of flavour before the finish
