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

Purchased from Belmont Station in Portland. Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half cream-colored head. Decent retention. Cloudy orange color, minimal clarity. Alright looking.

S- Light hoppiness and subtle malts. Smells like Amarillo hops maybe? ...the bottle says I'm wrong. Very subtle smell, not impressive, but expected.

T- Some bitterness, pine, honey, warm malts and bitter but not aromatic hops. Pretty drinkable.

M- Creamy, smooth, finishes velvety and dry.

O- Above average beer. Good pickup and extremely cheap.

22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $4.99 Pours a well carbonated golden yellow with a large and thick frothy off white head. Pleasant honey,oat,caramel and brown bread aromas.. some floral hop notes. Very smooth ,creamy and balanced flavours with the honey.bread to the fore and some hop bitterness in the end..but small. Ok mouthfeel good for style. Enjoyable Cream Ale on a 90 degree night here.

Pours an orangey chrome colour, clear and still body but decent frothy head that sinks unevenly; white colour, sparse bubbling. Lace is alright but, like the appearance in general, could be better.

Smells fairly sweet, with caramel malt and a light buttery edge giving it a cake batter character. Hops on the back are metallic and slightly medicinal, not quite providing contrast but bogging the aroma down slightly instead. OK, but have smelled more enticing things.

Quite malty upfront, and gets pretty boozey. Sweet throughout though, hints of caramel, butterscotch and pearl barley on there. Bitterness is quite phenolic but not really complex, just a rising dankness that has a slightly metallic edge. Hints of some fennel and rocket as well. Fairly unnuanced, although the balance in construction is definitely worth a mention.

Smooth mouthfeel, with a slight dry tickle at the back. Not bad at all.

Really not my cup of tea - I think it's a bit uninspired and uninteresting, albeit well made.

Bottle purchased from The Beermongers in Portland. Brought it back to Sydney and shared with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe.

Pours a very clear dank copper colour, with a patchy, speckled head of white. Lacing is streaking and inconsistent. Body is light, and hold large-bubbled carbonation. Overall, I'm not overly enthusiastic.

Nose is very light. A slight organic grain character comes through, along a weak fragrance of honeydew melon, and perhaps a sharper sherbet character. But this is all extremely subdued, except for the honeydew, which seems to come forward a little more as it warms.

Taste is similar, but not unpleasant. Clean grainy front balanced by some coppery bitterness which cuts it back at the end. Finish is quite clear, with a touch of smoothness. Slight buttery, or even oaky characters get noticeable later: almost perhaps an oddity like Sorachi Ace. Feel is pretty smooth and clear.

Overall, I think it makes a reasonable cream ale. This is never a style which seems to wow me, but they've got it nicely balanced, with a touch of smoothness. Worth trying at least once.
