A-Cloudy almost bright orange. One finger head that doesn't last long.
S-Bread. Malt. A little bit of citrus and orange flavors.
T- Sorta sweet, as the style would suggest. Sweetness is mainly in the form of malt and bread with a tad bit of citrus thrown in as well.
M-Lighter, not much carbonation, tad watery.
O-A good cream ale. The style is normally an avoidable one to me but this one was enjoyable but not great.

Capital Brewing : Hop Cream
LOOK: Pours a bright copper color with soapy head. There is a moderate chill haze and plenty of lace going down the glass.
SMELL: Hops come in floral in the aroma, along with sweet toffee and caramel malts.
TASTE: An interesting blend of hop and cream ale features, with fair bitterness and orange citrus pairing with a sugary sweetness. The hops and sweetness gives off a flavor that reminds me of melon. Ample bitterness to suit the vanilla like unfermented sugars, the bottle lists the IBU at 34.
FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated feel. Finishes more or less clean.
OVERALL: A fresh new angle on a cream ale. The hops worked well with the inherent sweetness and everything worked well together. This is the type of cream ale I could drink a few of. Well done.

On tap at Capital beer garden, Middleton
Cloudy orange on color. Served with about a quarter to half inch of foamy white head. Good retention. Some light lacing. Aroma is fairly malty, with a mild skunkiness. Taste is rather grainy with a bit of caramel malt in the mix. Some light citrusy hops and a mild soapiness on the finish. Lighter side of medium in body. Appropriate carbonation. Mild bitterness. Mild soapy quality.
Have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of the style and this one isn't going to change my
