2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drought. Hazy light amber color, whitish very small foamy head, creamy sweet taste, a bit bland with an abrupt finish.
12oz can: Being a "Blonde" ale I thought it would be more yellowfin color. It is clear amber.
Hard to judge this strange beer, but there somewhat of a sour note I don't like.

I had this at Lombardi's in NYC. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste sweet, pine, biscuit. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

12 oz single can from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Council Bluffs (Madison Ave). Clear amber appearance with a fluffy beige head and light lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, wheat, light melon and light piney hops. Similar flavor, malt-forward and mildly sweet, balanced by a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a clean feel, ample carbonation and smooth finish. Nice Cream Ale overall, easy drinking. Speko (414) - DENMARK - JUN 25, 2017

Clear amber, airy offwhite head. Aroma has passionfruit, candied fruit, pine and caramel. Piney, caramely flavour. Peachy notes too. Refreshing bitter bite. Quite hoppy for a cream ale?

On tap @ Umami Burger, NYC. A near clear mild amber one, only a little lacing islandy off-white head on the top. Mildish nose. Some peach sweetness, candy and not too much more. It’s also really mild in the taste. Thin oily in the mouth and it’s just about average on the carbonation. A bit mineralish and dry in a way. Mild red fruits and some peach. A bit dull, but tasty. Works with the burger! 21.06.2015 crispaire (237) - - MAY 23, 2017
Pouring a cognac amber. Aromas of caramel, toast, and faint liqueur. Bready malt character evident. Nice mouthfeel. More of an amber than a cream ale IMHO. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Appearance: clear medium amber with one fat finger of fluffy ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral, caramel, resin. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (4/5)
Definitely one of the best Cream Ales I’ve ever had. Scratch, that, I checked: it’s the best example of the style I’ve ever had. Mostly because of the larger-than-normal hop presence, of course. Unlike most Cream Ales, this one has a significant hop presence, pretty evenly balanced against the sweet malt in intensity. Not a whole lot happening, but very easy drinking. Definitely would not say no to another. (14/20)
