Nice and smooth. Vibrant deep orange pour. Complex taste notes in a solid malty base: cream, some citrus (orange?) sweetness, and a bit of hoppy kickness. Perhaps a toffee note or two as well. Creamy mouthfeel and lingering notes. Very enjoyable.

16 ounce can.
Pours a hazy reddish gold, an inch of foam, respectable lacing. Smells malty; caramel, biscuit, almost no bitterness, notes of vanilla and toffee. Taste is heavy on the caramel and vanilla, lighter on the toffee, light bitterness that seems to lean on the grassy side. Mostly sweetish finish. Tasty and enjoyable. A treat.

The beer is bright orange and mostly clear, sporting a small white head that leaves some good lacing on the tulip. The aroma brings floral notes, malt, cream. Wow, the cream character really comes through in the flavor. Vanilla and cream soda notes. Soft and smooth on the palate. I would definitely have this again.

Drank in tall pilsner glass poured from 220z bottle. Aroma - roasted earthy smell. Appearance - golden auburn with avg froth and carbonation. Taste - caramel and hazelnut. Palate - get some burnt caramel taste. Overall - tastes like an upgrade to a red or amber beer. A little more flavor but still not my favorite. Really good for the style though annunz123 (975) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bread, biscuits, fruit, and a little corn in the aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet. Finish is spicy, lightly bitter and fruity. I’m becoming a fan of this brewery--if you’re in the mood for something a little different, this is a really good choice.

Aroma is spices, hops and pizza dough. The flavor is malt sweetness, a decent hop bite, a hint of banana/bubble gum, and a mix of hops and malts in the finish, not smooth or crisp but balanced. Such a strange style to make an imperial of, good for what it is, much more hoppier than a normal cream ale. Ratman197 (15624) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bomber poured a hazy orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, graininess and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of vanilla, bread and fruittiness with a crisp lingering fruity vanilla finish. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013

Crazy hoppy. I guess. Pretty fucked up. Back dreck. hampale (120) - Jaffrey, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2013
I haven’t had many Cream Ales in recent years (Genesee Cream Ale years ago) but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Has some noticeable but not excessive sweetness with a very smooth mouth feel. At over 7% it’s definitely full-bodied yet not heavy with the alcohol not highly notable. Wish Slumbrew would put this ale in a 12 oz. bottle when or if they go beyond marketing only in 22’s.
