3.8/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap it pours a bright ember orange with a nice cream like white head. Very cloudy and frothy.

Smells more like a Belgian style pale that has a very subtle hop note that doesn't overpower. It has more creamy/Kolsch style notes than the typical American strong ale.

Taste has that nice cream soda and malty Kolsch notes with fresh vanilla and nuttyness. There's a nice woody oak character and some richness similar to ice cream. The malt backbone similar to a buiscut/toffee note comes through to help support.

Mouthfeel is very pleasant and goes well with the creamy nature of the beer. It's mildly carbonated which makes it sharp on the tongue. Still holds some chewy feel.

Overall when reviewing this beer I focused on each of its qualities individually. And you can tell its been brewed with quality. But I couldn't get past the cream ale taste. I recommend this one to try for sure.

On tap at the Noble Ale Works 3rd Anniversary Party held at Noble Ale Works in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with malt citrus zest, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a better wood presence in the taste.
