Among the cream ales out there that I've had, this is one of the best and most pleasing.Comes in a clear bottle with no label on the body of the bottle just a tag like strip on the neck, kinda cool to see such a unique bottle. Has a raised little etching of a maple leaf with a beaver in front of it. Do those Canadians have to have a maple leaf on every beer or what? I'm surprised at this point they haven't tried brewing something with maple leaves in it, not just maple syrup.

Color is golden yellow, sort of hazy. Smells sweet and light of maltyness and a hint of hops and vanilla. Taste generally the same as the smell. Fairly light, good body though, with a nice sweet malt and notes of slight hop and vanilla. Very smooth, crisp, and clean, coats the tongue and mouth with creamy sweetness. Not bitter in the least. I couldn't stop drinking this stuff. Highly drinkable with a burger and fries or for picnics and outdoor backyard BBQ's. Very good Cream Ale. (968 characters)

A very nice cream ale that is full bodied and very well balanced..The colour is a very light golden hue and extremely clear. The taste is its finer point in that it is very rewarding, refreshing, crisp and clean. The only drawback of this particular brew is its total lack of head shortly after being poured....
Go Sleeman's....ya got a winner here!!! (352 characters)

Good head and nice lace on an otherwise unimpressive beer. Not bad, mind you, just nothing out of the ordinary. Not very complex, but very smooth. Typical Canadian yeasty aftertaste. (185 characters)
