look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows spicy, piny hops along with some bready malt and soft wheat. A bit faint.
More spicy hops as flavours along with soft brady notes and a faint grainy hit. Also some booze with a slight industrial note. The hops and bready malt are nice though.
Great moderate carbonation and a lightish body.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2014. Acquired quite a while ago from a webshop and stored in my garage. This is a collaborative brew with the Revelation Cat brewery in Rome. Cream ale is a style I haven't tried before - should be interesting....

Poured into a Delirium chalice. Bottle conditioned. A hazy golden-amber hue with intense carbonation and fine yeast sediment. Produces a huge head of creamy white foam with good retention; this slowly collapses to a surface layer. Nice lacing. Aroma of light malt with hints of earthy yeast, grain, floral hops, mild citrus and stewed hops. It smells enticing.

Tastes of light malt with a hoppy character and a dry finish. Notes of floral hops, subtle citrus, earthy yeast, grain and stewed hops. A faint quality of noble hop aroma and a whisper of solvent in the background. A restrained, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied for the style, with prickly carbonation. A creaminess comes through once the carbonation has died down a little; very nice on the palate. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and yeast.

Very tasty, and goes down all too easily. Not sure how true this is to style; I suspect the original cream ales were less hoppy. But I'm not complaining - this is nicely balanced and very drinkable. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.
