look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

(3.75) A: Hazy straw colour with a finger of white foam that recedes promptly.

(4.25) S: Grains, orange, cloves, light pine, lemon, and floral elements. There’s a slight funky quality to this that comes across fresh and slightly tart. Excellent.

(3.5) T: Grain, floral qualities, light orange, faint pine, and spices. This leans towards a fairly bitter taste (pine and floral) with a bit of fruit sweetness. Slight funkyness is less present than aroma indicated.

(3.75) M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

(3.75) D: This is a nice hoppy and bitter ale that has a creamy texture. The aroma was standout highlight for me but not something I would likely revisit at the price.

Appearance: hazy, lemon yellow; white head with not great retention

Aroma: faintly of grapefruit, candied lemon peel; creamsicle

Taste & Mouthfeel: lemon juice, grapefruit and other citrus leads the way, with balanced sweet and tart notes; there's a sharp acidity throughout, accentuating a dry, lightly hopped finish; some mineral flavour, and a little metallic; light body and medium/light carbonation

Overall: a palate cleanser, bright, tart, and refreshing, but the finish strays to metal and stone; frankly not an amazing taste, despite the vibrancy

330 ml bottle from the lcbo. Poured a hazy golden colour, some light film and lacing.

S - light floral hop aroma, pale malts, grassy with a subtle spice. Not particularly enticing, it does have some of the corn come through with a weird sort of musty graininess. Cornmeal, piney hops, florals.

T - a light start, citrusy grapefruit, pine develops, florals, with a zesty carbonation, then some of the grain bill comes to predominate the middle of the profile. Corn meal, dry light caramel, quite dry feel. Then has some light floral hops and spice emerge on the end. I feel that its a fairly flavourful example of the style but still not got a great balanced profile in general.

M - zesty and quite a solid carbonation, drinkable with a mild profile and springy florals, the combination of hop bitterness and musty graininess isnt especially pleasant but it is light enough that you can drink it without dwelling on this too heavily.

I feel like the constraints and guides of this style make it a hard outlet to create world class beers. Nevertheless I feel Mikkeller did a jgood job in spite of that in create a flavourful and zesty cream ale, but the tart mustiness and tough balance of flavour make it a beer I wouldn't seek regularly, it is still one of the better cream ales I can remember having.

Purchased at the LCBO for a steep $4.60 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- 4.0- Opens well pours a good white head that lasts a bit. Unfiltered and very light gold

S- 3.75- An almost wheat beer quality.

T- 3.25- Big let down here. Bit sour. Not hearty at all. Not much to this beer believe it or not.

M- 3.0- Not creamy at all. Not much at all, just a slightly sour beer

O- 3.58- And this is it. Not a very good beer. I feel peeled paying nearly $5.00 for this.

Food Pairing

This ok brew went well with....... Grilled cheese sandwiches

Enjoy
