Golden brown, off-white head. Light hazelnut aroma. Light malt flavour, roasted nuts with a balanced finish.
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 (536) - 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 (632) - , 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 (9734) - 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 (379) - 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 (973) - 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 (1209) - - 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
