473 mL can, chilled and poured into my trusty Ironspike pilsner glass. (After their rebranding, cool can though)
Best before: December.1/2011
Appearance- Pours a light amber colour with two fingers of soapy white head that very quickly dissipates to a thin ring around the glass, which leaves below average lacing throughout till finish.
Smell- Not a whole lot going on in the nose although I am getting a sweet aroma coming from this one right off the bat, and lots of bready malts in there as well. Other than that the nose is rather subdued.
Taste- Lots and lots of bready malts going on in the tastes as well, some sweetness in there as well but mainly bready malts.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with almost below average carbonation, for a cream ale it is definitely not very creamy, although it is nice to drink on a hot summer day.
Overall- This is a beer for the person who is just getting into craft beers, the one who is used to drinking BMC all day because this is not far off from an adjunct lager or something along those lines, this beer does not really have a whole lot going on in any aspect. The smells are muted although a lot better than the taste, and speaking of the tastes they are so one dimensional and boring this beer just screams fail. Personally didn’t enjoy it but I’ll chalk that one up to having my taste buds spoiled by amazing American craft.

Poured from the bottle into an American pub glass. A dark gold brew, just grading into light bronze territory, with around two fingers of resilient beige head. Aroma was unexpected and compelling, mainly tangy English hops (!?) propped up by doughy sweet malts, accompanied by some fruity yeast esters that recall pears and light citrus rind. Taste is correspondingly fruity and reasonably sweet, with a blood-like metallic tang. This brewery yields some nice caramel malt flavors and these shine through here, along with nutty baker's yeast, unripe peach, grape candy, pear, citrus rind, and toffee brittle. The sweet malt flavors develop nicely as the beer warms up. Light bodied and creamy as the style designator would suggest, with a semi-wet finish that features more earthy/spicy hops and hints of toast. Robust flavors for a cream ale and starts to blur the boundary between this style and an amber ale. I like my session options less sweet than this but recommended nonetheless.
