A totally beige body due to the silky, creamy head mixes nicely with the light copper body. Aroma of nuts and malt is somewhat muted by the nitro. Decent flavor, mineral hops, some fruit. Very creamy body, ultra smooth but middle is a bit muddled.. Overall, decent enough.

Thick and creamy looking with nice cascading effects and good head retention; some light lacing.

Dry hay and some slight maltiness. Nothing too in-your-face.

Tastes mildly hoppy but not bitter or anything. A touch of sweetness citrus, grass, mustiness.

Nice and creamy. Smooth and dry with a quick finish.

This is a good beer. I read (don't know for sure) that this is just their Pale Ale with nitro and that they thought it tasted so different they decided to call it cream ale (I don't think it actually is one). I don't know if that is true but if it is, then it is quite amazing how different the taste is. I wouldn't spend tons to get my hands on it, but if it is on tap I'll definitely get it over some other stuff. Really enjoyable.

A - copper with two fingers of fluffy dense white head. Cascading beautifully. The head sticks around for the entire pint.

S - smells like a toned down version of their pale ale. Spicy notes from the yeast. really beautiful caramel malty notes.

T - Tons of biscuity malt characters fnished with the tiniest hop bite. very spicy.

M - The nitro really makes me enjoy this beer on another level. It adds the creamiest finish. This beer is extremely easy to drink

O - A good example of the style. Nitro made it way better. Had it at work after my shift and I'm glad I did. Would have again.
