A - Pours a golden/amber clear producing close to 1 finger of white big-bubbled head that dissipates very quickly to practically nothing, leaving no lace.
S - Majority scent is of sour fruit and barely. Also a slight hint of band-aid.
T - Slight hoppy flavor accompanied by barely and that band-aid characteristic, again. Sour, bitter, fruit is also there.
M - Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Slight hoppy bite, finishes clean.
D - Not sure about this one. I wasn't really impressed from pour to finish. Not that it's terrible, just not my style. Not sure it's a good example either.

Cream Ale isn't really a style that commands attention on BA, but when I saw a few singles from this obscure brewpub while in KC, curiosity got the best of me.

Pours into a tulip glass a hazed goldenrod yellow. Pastel almost in its paleness. A little bit of foam that faded quickly to a ring at the edge. Aroma is basic and grainy, sort of swilly at first, now sweet grain and trace skunky hops.

Flavor is mild with a fruity sweet citric element, and underlying biscuity specialty malt flavor. The taste does remind me of Irish Red ales i've had somehow. Pleasant aftertaste of white bread and white grape juice.

Feel is smooth enough without major flaws, there's a slight astringency present though. Easy enough to drink, seems better suited for warm weather. Not much complexity, but it's decent. I'm wondering if this is a new batch considering all the earlier bad reviews.

This is the only offering from the Weston Brewing Co. Served only in O'malley's irish pub in Weston, MO (as of today). The beer is overall unimpressive. Served on nitro the carbonation masks the taste for the most part and the aroma in total. The flavor is predominately sweet malts and some light grains. All of the taste is found in the frontend of the beer there is no finish. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth most of this can be attributed to the nitro. Not offensive at all and apparently they serve a bunch of it but most BA's will not be impressed.

Although this isn’t techinically an “Irish” beer, since it is St. Patty’s weekend and there is “Irish” in the title and a presumably Irish dude on the package, I drank this too! Here lies the end of the comparisons between this and anything to do with Irish anything.

Appearance – Pours a medium copper color with no head at all….with no head obviously there is no retention and no lacing. No bubbles, no nothing. Hmmmm. Underwhelming…..

Smell – Very light malts, vanilla, a certain sweetness to the nose can certainly be detected.

Taste – Follows the nose rather closely, although not as pronounced. There really is no “stages” to this drink, as it all comes at the finish. The actual drink itself really doesn’t taste like anything. There is a distinctive vanilla flavoring and creaminess near the finish as well as a super-light hop presence.

Mouthfeel – Watery, but easily drinkable. Almost no carbonation to speak of.

Overall – Not really too great, but there is nothing abominable or awful about it. It’s just so forgettable. I would probably drink it again, although I certainly wouldn’t buy it.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: The body is hazy amber with a bronze hue. The head and lace are more of film than froth.

Smell: As with a lot of their beers it is sort of sour. There are some bread and fruit tones to the nose.

Taste: The flavor is very weak. There is not much to it really. Maybe some berries, malty sweetness and candy tones.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and bit creamy. I would say a light medium.

Overall: I would say this is not another beer I would go out of my way for. If it wasn’t for the price I would say an ok party beer.

Very easy to drink with light sweetness. No noticeable hops flavor or nose. A bit sweeter than some other cream ales.
Golden in color with very slight amber hints.
Much more full in body than earlier bottlings of this same beer from prior tastings at retail.

Poured into a shaker pint.

Look: Light copper, honey. Eggshell head with rapid recession. Light lacing.

Aroma: Cereal grains, sweetness, malts.

Taste: Creamy mellow malts and barley, balancing hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth.

Overall: Liked this much more the second time around, very smooth.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a tan head. Aromas of a sweet malt. In the taste, a sweet malt dominates a small presence of peet and a small bitter. A bitter, yet full bodied mouthfeel, with a dry malty aftertaste. Malty and sweet, easy to drink, and mellow. Flavors are light, but effective.
