Can, 355ml at a Wetherspoons. Cloudy orange amber with white head. Quite a sweet beer throughout with a Satsuma orange juice flavour and pineapple. Juicy but with a bittering, hoppy element. Good depth. Really quite decent. s_hartshorne (2767) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014

Can, courtesy of JD Wetherspoons. Hazy orange brown,thin shortlived off white head and gentle condition. Pleasant resinous hop in the nose with hints of lemon citrus and some fruity berry notes, then weirdly a suggestion of petroleum in the background, dry and bitter in the mouth initially but this quickly melts away to leave a delicate fruitiness with a little hop resin around the edges, finish has flashes of hop bitterness and citrusy resin but is quite brief.

Hazy pale amber/ orange slight citrus bouquet first sip reminded me of an IPA rather than cream ale, pencil thin head floats all the way to the bottom of the glass , crisp bitterness lasts for quite a while berkshirejohn (6448) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
On tap at the Book & Bar, Portsmouth, NH. Hazy pale amber with a ring of white head; soft and creamy with a toffee malt taste; the finish is dry and lightly bitter. Very unexciting.

Finally! The Cream Ale has been acquired
Aroma - nose holds caramel and slightly piney hops
Appearance - body color is a caramel colored amber; liquid is slightly hazy with some very fine particulates and a little nucleation; the head setup os about 1" white head; lacing also develops with a nice dappling on the glass.
Taste - is a little bitter and a little sweet. There is a little caramel in the malt, and some spicy hops possibly Centennials some floral qualities as well.
Palate - body is light; texture is thin; carbonation is lively on the palate; finish is abrupt with a little crispness.

A: Pours hazy golden. Thin creamy tan head. Little retention but leaves very nice lacing.
S: Pretty clean with hints of sweet fruits and floral hops. Nice, but could be stronger.
T/M: Creamy, peachy, malty, sweet. Bitter floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied with the
taste of melons.
O: Bitter and sweet. Well balanced. Smooth and easy to drink. Nothing too complex,
which makes for one of the better if not the best Cream Ales around.

It’s certainly better than Genny Cream Ale. Light sweetness of crystal malt I believe, slightly grassy hops. Not nearly my favorite Sixpoint offering, but within the style it’s pretty darn good.
