Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium straw amber with hints of gold, and a half finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma is light a lager-like with light biscuit malt and hint of wheat. Flavor follows with biscuit and mildly bready malt, light grassy hops and hints of adjunct to lighly sweeten and smooth it out. Light to medium bodied. Cream ales always make me think of crafted up adjunct lagers, brewed to be mellow and smooth, but with more satisfying flavors. This hits that mark exactly. An easy drinking light lager with nice mild biscuit malt and a hint of hops. Not a style I drink a lot, but would be a clear choice if I was looking for a session ale. Reuben's does a good job even on styles made to be pedestrian.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: light golden hue with a little haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a half-finger of creamy white foam. Not too bad for the style.
Smell: lightly grainy with a little touch of sweet corn and a slightly green, slightly fruity hop component. Actually pretty balanced and nuanced for a cream ale.
Taste: mildly malty with a little bit of grainy finish and just a tiny touch of corn. Hops are grassy, if anything, although not particularly stand-out. However, this a damn clean beer, and a good example of the style.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good, well-integrated carbonation and a lot of creaminess. I like it!
Overall: this is a nice cream ale with good balance and a little more complexity than normal. It's also highly drinkable, per the style. Makes a good session drink!
