This beer arrives at the table, the cascading bubbles putting on a nice show. Once settled, it appears a peach-brown colour, with one finger of very creamy white head, which leaves a painted swath of lace around the glass as it melts away. It smells milky, floral, like baby powder almost, and faintly of caramel malt. The taste is milky, creamy caramel malt, some biscuity graininess, and lightly spicy, floral hops. The carbonation is very low, the body just plain cold smooth and silky, with an adequately medium weight, and it finishes dry, the floral hops and dry milk persisting.

The abundant creaminess takes away from any crisp bitterness this beer may have had - nonetheless, it's very easy to drink, if a bit too soft, overall.

The brewery site lists this as being an ESB, despite it being called a cream ale. In my notes, I had written that it was listed as a red ale, so reports are a little conflicting. Going with what the brewery site says until information otherwise is found.

A: Very creamy right off the pour... takes a while to settle down, and allow the colour through. A crisp golden, slightly offwhite head - very creamy, as they'll be on nitro. Head is aboujt a finger tall, and lasts forever - again, as per the nitro.

S: Mild aroma... not much to pick out aside from the English malts. Perhaps a slightly herbal hop profile.

T + M + D: A bit of a sweeter, English malt. A bit of a soft roastiness. Perhaps a little nondescript, but not too shabby. It could likely do without being served as a nitro. Medium bodied, enhanced with the added creaminess. Not a favourite of the night, and lacking as a "red" but alright for an ESB.

Liftline Cream Ale pours a dark reddish color, with a nice long lasting head. The smell is weak, and has a malty sweetness to it. The taste was rather light and watery, but had a nice malty backbone to finish. Again was light in flavor, but easy to drink. Overall not a bad beer, but weak.
