3.48/5 rDev -7.2%
A totally beige body due to the silky, creamy head mixes nicely with the light copper body. Aroma of nuts and malt is somewhat muted by the nitro. Decent flavor, mineral hops, some fruit. Very creamy body, ultra smooth but middle is a bit muddled.. Overall, decent enough.

Thick and creamy looking with nice cascading effects and good head retention; some light lacing.
Dry hay and some slight maltiness. Nothing too in-your-face.
Tastes mildly hoppy but not bitter or anything. A touch of sweetness citrus, grass, mustiness.
Nice and creamy. Smooth and dry with a quick finish.
This is a good beer. I read (don't know for sure) that this is just their Pale Ale with nitro and that they thought it tasted so different they decided to call it cream ale (I don't think it actually is one). I don't know if that is true but if it is, then it is quite amazing how different the taste is. I wouldn't spend tons to get my hands on it, but if it is on tap I'll definitely get it over some other stuff. Really enjoyable.

A - copper with two fingers of fluffy dense white head. Cascading beautifully. The head sticks around for the entire pint.
S - smells like a toned down version of their pale ale. Spicy notes from the yeast. really beautiful caramel malty notes.
T - Tons of biscuity malt characters fnished with the tiniest hop bite. very spicy.
M - The nitro really makes me enjoy this beer on another level. It adds the creamiest finish. This beer is extremely easy to drink
O - A good example of the style. Nitro made it way better. Had it at work after my shift and I'm glad I did. Would have again.

Appearance – Clear light copper colour with an average size frothy off white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation visible and there is a really good amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 7 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, tea
Taste & Mouth - The beer has a low amount of carbonation and the beer has a nice velvety feel. I can taste malts, caramel, and some notes of tea. There was also a bit of a metallic flavour. Th beer ends with a nice light malty aftertaste.
Overall – A very drinkable beer with a fantastic appearance. They should really start selling this beer in cans. It's not as good as some of the cream ales from the UK, but it's close. I'd buy it again.

Enjoyed on nitro tap at L'Escalier.
Thanks to the the nitrogen, it was a gorgeous pour: Super creamy, frothy head and cascading down the glass and thick lacing. Dark copper body. Hoppy malt smell.
A superbly creamy mouthfeel and nice bitter ale with some hop (similar to their "blonde" pale ale). Some toasted maltiness and caramel but also a wee thin and watery.
An almost perfect session ale for a night out with friends.
