Best Before 17Nov2011
A- Near inch-tall, off-white fluffy head on a purdy lookin' deep orange/light red colored body. A dozen or so streams of effervescence. Average head retention and spotty lacing.
S- Sweet grass, smells of the tropics!
T- Caramel sweetness dominates but there is a hop presence. "Pear." Very peculiar aftertaste, something like menthol...or something.
M- Full mouthfeel. Average carbonation.
D/O- I really enjoyed this one. Definitely my favorite cream ale thus far and I wouldn't be surprised if it stays that way for a long time. I would akin this to a Samuel Adams Boston Lager or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in that it'd be a go-to if one were looking for a flavorful low(ish) ABV session(able) brew. Thanks for the chance mcb4538!

3.63/5 rDev -7.2%
Appearance - pours a hazy dark amber color with fluffy white head
smell - hops, caramel malts, citrus, bit of pine
taste - caramel/honey sweetness, citrus (mango/grapefruit) is prominent as well, slight hops bitterness is present
mouthfeel - thin to medium bodied beverage, sweetness upfront, bitterness in the aftertaste, low carbonation on this beer as well
overall - decent, easy to drink beer that I am glad I tried, I could see throwing back a couple of these on a hot summers day, would have this again if offered the chance
Price point - $2.79/single 16oz can

Last can from Sixpoint.
A: The cream ale is amber, bright orange from top to bottom despite a mild haziness. Another ale that sports a rich lacing head.
S: Light and biscuity with a surprising hop kick. The malt side doesn't really stand a chance against the citrus hops.
T: The hop-centric nature of the cream ale is unusual. Each sip is quite light but packed with citrus and flowers. The first half of each sip is biscuit, gradually building to the hops by the halfway point. After the brief flourish, the hops fade away and the airy malts of the cream ale return. Very interesting while the hops loiter around.
M: The mouthfeel alternates between mild and vibrant; I like the vibrant side much better.
