3.7/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aromas of subtle lemony zest, slight citrusy hops, hay and a bit of bread.

As for appearance; what a show this beer puts on as it pours! When it first comes out of the tap it looks like a glass of milk. As the foam curtain rises it unveils a sparkling, golden/copper brew.

Taste is a subtle balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Slight honey character. Lemon, hay, bread.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy.

Serving type: on-tap

Nonic pint.

Pale, hazy yellow that clears up as the beer settles, with a thick foamy white head.

Grainy, lightly sweet, biscuity malt with a lightly grassy hop backing in both aroma and taste.

Medium+ creamy body, foamy carbonation.

A well done, easy drinking cream ale, the initially hazy appearance and creamy body makes me think perhaps it was on nitro tap?

Had on draft at TapHouse Seattle. Great nitro pour. Perfect head, crystal clear straw color. Flavor profile is a nice sweet and smooth ale. Nice slight hop character on backed to clean up the finish on the palate. Only bad comment was a predominant husk of the grain flavor, on the front palate.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Served on-tap @ Red Star Tavern & Roast House in downtown Portland. Cheers to Zach and James for a successful video shoot.

Pours a pale blonde color with a frothy white head with good retention and lacing. Mild hop aroma with subtle whiffs of corn, grain and rice.

Opens nutty with flavors of buttered biscuit and pale malted barley. Well carbonated with an uber-smooth and creamy mouthfeel -- almost silky. Suggestions of grain and subtle hop bittering follow. Slight lemon citrus finish.

Easy drinking, smooth and refreshing are qualities that make this Cream Ale particularly rewarding.

Proper British imperial pint in a dimpled mug at "f Stop Fitzgeralds Pub" in Salem Oregon. This was served on nitro so presented quite nicely with large foamy thick white head and a pale golden ale. Not much aromas to talk of..slight dough.bread. Taste was also subdued..but then that is the style creamy, corn, biscuit a wisp of floral hop. Great on the tongue very creamy and smooth, Overall a nice cream ale served in a nice wee pub.

Serving type: nitro-tap
