Poured a 473-ml can into a pub ale glass.
Appearance - gold colour with a 1-inch head that cools off to a thin layer of bubbles in no time. Produces little spots of lace as consumed.
Smell - sweet corn similar to that of an adjunct with a cooked vegetable smell over steady, clean malt aromas. A little skunkiness noted as well, typical of the Sleeman folks.
Taste - good flavours of malt and hops throughout with a pretty clean, crisp finish. Far better from the can than the bottle.
Mouthfeel - pretty neutral in terms of mouthfeel, less active than the bottle. I'd also mention it doesn't have that seltzer-ish feel that I thought the glass counterpart provided.
Drinkability - nothing wrong with this one, on a hot night with a cheeseburger and fries. That's what I had mine with.

A bottle into a pint glass.
Cream ale by sleeman pours out a gold color that well, looks gold with dark yellow tones. A whole lot of foam pops out of the bottle and explodes in the glass, semi stick once it dies down. Smell is pretty one sided with sweeeet malt/corm ect. No hops at this point. Taste while being totally boring and predictable, is also a bit volmit inducing, I made a face on 1st sips. A few more than I got the hang of it. Feel is medium, moderate carb, no bitterness, or aftertaste for that matter. One and done for me, and I got three more of these, jeez. Happy birthday to me.
