Like a red ale, very creamy head with lots of lace. More malty aroma, a tad of roast. The creminess leads into a good bitterness, with some peachy apricot fruitiness. Medium mouthfeel, smooth drinking. Understated carbonation. Either improved or very fresh or both. At the brewpub.

I used to like cream ales alot in the past, but I was fed up with the style for years now. But this cream ales is a quite a nice example for the style.

A very creamy white head that stays the course of the beer, quite motivated head, not shying away.Amberish in color with some blond hues.

Smell of caramel dued to the malt, butterschotch, hops and a shy yeast flavours, quite balanced, but also, the hops seemed to be quite present.

Taste was very creamy in mouth, smooth as milk actually with a strong malty caramel presence, a yeasty hello and a hoppy finish. More the glass was getting emptied the more the hops were getting present.

The pour is a light amber, clear with a decent white cover. Light aroma of cookies, oat. Slight lactic bite. Mouthfeel is cask-like, a bit on the watery side, but moderately creamy. Decent quaffer, but I don't think I'll ever pick this again in a bar such as DDC. Pathetic style imo.

Draft

Appearance - The beer pours a orange-copper colour with a large size creamy off white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is a great amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 8 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, cookies, pears, tea

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a low amount of carbonation and it feels very creamy on the tongue. Most of the taste consists of malts, cookies, and a pear/fruit sweetness. It probably one of the most drinkable DDC beers I've ever had. I could put this back all night.

Drink - While I agree with some of the other reviewers that this beer isn't very exciting taste wise, it really is an excellent example of the style. They should definitely bottle this beer in the future. It's extremely drinkable and the flavours are really well balanced.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a true pint, the beer is a ruby-orange coloring with a dense, foamy, off-white head. Great cling as you drink. Aromas of nut and cream sweetly fill the nose. The beer's flavors are all cream, with roasty, slightly caramel sweet highlights. Smooth, tangy sweet aftertaste with a clean, creamy finish. Very subtle, but very fulfilling.

Served an amber with a creamy white head. Mouthfeel is very very nice and smooth. Goes down so easy. Not too thin, not too thick. Tastes are mellow, but very much good. Balanced well with some tasty malts. This is another great beer from Dieu Du Ciel!

A wonderful cream ale from Dieu Du Ciel. This Irisih cream ale was a nice creamy blond/amber colour with a fluffy, white head. The aromas were of caramel malts, hops, and yeast. The flavor was very mellow, subtle and very balanced. The mouthfeel was thick, but not too thick and the drinkability was great as well!
perhaps this is my favorite cream ale....
Cheers!
