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.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with a one finger thin white head with nice lacing. Some subtle citrus hops initially on the nose, but that quickly gives way to hints of grass, lemon, and a bit of funk and bread. The taste is a bit harsh at first for a cream ale. A lot more bitterness than I had expected. But as it warms, the malt emerges and balances it out nicely. The flavors are very subtle with hints of lemon, corn, and grass. The mouthfeel is not creamy at all and is borderline fizzy. Big initial bitterness that yields to a crisp, dry, subtly sweet finish. It's been a while since I've had a cream ale, but this is not what I remembered. But then again, Mikkeller never follows the norm and that's why I love them.

Bottle from wordemupg, thanks Chris! 341ml into a tulip, holdbar til October 20, 2014. A bottle conditioned cream ale...

Hazy pale orange, a few fingers of white head with some webbed lacing and chunky retention. Juicy citrus hop notes on the nose with some big yeast wafting from the glass. A bit bready, lightly floral - unique to any 'cream ale' I've come across. Taste is more along the lines of what I had expected, grainer malt notes and solid, but restrained hopping still moderately juicy and citrusy. A bit drying in the finish with some yeast. Medium feel and excellent drinkability, wish I could have access to this year round. A well assembled cream ale.

Hazy honey blonde with stiff snow white foam that webs. Butter cookie with orangey hops on the nose.
Peach melba with a touch of almond nougat then intricate but gentle waves of floral & citrus hops.
Sugar cookie and orange boiled sweet on the comeback with surprisingly tight and numbing linger. Medium, very soft, round and dry.

Columbus, Amarillo and Challenger, says the label.

Unsurprisingly, the thing about this is the feel. Tough to get excited about something purposefully understated, but it's done right. Could easily stay on this all night.

Would love to see this head to head with Sweet Action.

A - Served a cloudy golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of light sweet caramel malt, light yeast, and a bit of corn, grain, and bread.

T - Starts off with some light sweet caramel malt with some grain and corn with a touch of yeast. Through the middle some more sweet grains come through. The finish is a mix of light biscuit sweetness with some grain, bitterness, and some yeast flavor.

M - Light bodied with moderate-minus carbonation. Feels smooth with a light and very crisp finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice cream ale. Good yeast and grain flavor and the beer is super refreshing and balanced.

On-tap at Craft Beer Co. into a goblet.

A: Clear light amber body under a dense, sticky white head. Classic.

S: Smooth, fruity, bready. Some citrus and tropical notes stand out. Very nice.

T: Rich. Follows the nose entirely, but with stronger flavors all around. Great balance of fruitiness and maltiness, with a bittersweet finish. Excellent.

M: Extremely frothy. Too frothy.

O: This was shockingly good. I didn't expect anything too crazy or distinctive from a 5% Cream Ale, but this was just drenched in flavor. Wonderful beer.

Cheers!
