A: Great foam of microbubbles, sediment sets nicely after a bit, very clear after settling and a nutty brown color. Retention is awesome - still has 1/2 finger after 5 minutes. I don't know if that lacing is good since there has been no recession of the head!
S: A bit fruity and pretty spicy, with some nice hops in the background. Not strong smelling at all.
T: Seems a bit watered down on first sip, but then the complexity of the cream flavor comes out as you keep it in your mouth. It's like drinking a very lightly carbonated milk flavored with fruit, herbs and a touch of spice. The light fruit flavor (cherry?) nicely complements the creamy background, like dipping cherries in whipped cream, but with less sugar.
M: Extremely creamy and smooth, this goes down better than most any beer I've tried. It's like drinking silk (the material, not the nasty excuse for soy milk). The head stays up to snuff the whole way down the glass. It's really quite amazing to see that much resilience, and it makes every sip frothy and creamy. It's not a dry beer at all, coating the mouth constantly.
D: If there was a beer to drink when one was sick, this would be a good one. It is a joy to drink, and soothes the mouth and throat. It's very filling, though, so drink it slowly.
Serving type: nitro-can

It came in a nice can. I like the cans appearance. It's golden in color with very little head. I might have kept it in the freezer too long. Had a little ice. Roughy an hour and a half. It had very little smell. Taste is decent. Expected more from a creme ale. Not bad though. I would drink this beer again.
