Deep amber with about 1inch of head that is slow to fade. Smells sweet and hoppy. Balanced taste. Very smooth and refreshing.

Great beer for someone who wants something semi sweet with some bitterness at the end. Very crisp, surprisingly refreshing, and WAY TOO EASY TO DRINK. which in my book is a great thing. For my personal taste I felt that the brown sugar/caramel was just perfect , and the IBU isnt too high. Leaves a pleasant sweet taste and slowly goes away.

BB14MAR2017

Pours a clear amber color topped by a small off-white head that dissolves to a broken layer. Nose is malty and sweet - earthy spice, raisins, light grapefruit citrus, and a bit of cardboard. Flavor seems less sweet, but it's not as smooth as I'd like. Cereal and caramel play off of a woody/grassy hop bitterness and a watery finish. Medium bodied and dry. Mediocre.

Great beer. Deep cooper color for a cream ale. Drinks smooth like a malt shake. Great taste and feel. A classic from Sixpoint.

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body copper-y with red and orange hues and it's very crystalline. The head is minimal but shows some good lacing in the sides of the glass.
S: The aroma is very earthy of resin, apples, and fresh hops.
T: The taste profiles are very sweet, maple syrup, resin, citrus, pineapple, apple. The malts in the back are very well balanced.
M: The body is medium. Carbonation is medium to high. Bitterness is medium to medium high. It's a very good cream ale for me.
O: Last August I had my first Sixpoint which was a bit disappointing but this cream ale is something indeed.
