Consumed September 17th, 2015. Poured from can into Sam Adams "perfect pint" glass. ABV on can is noted as 6.5% ABV.

Beer is certainly darker than one would expect from a Cream Ale - on the dark end of golden. Three finger white head disappears soon but leaves nice sheeting on the glass.

Aroma is caramel malt and a faint hop spiciness.

Flavor is familiar to anyone who has ever had a Vienna lager - caramel malt first and foremost. Very faint spice note on the finish followed by a lingering but moderate bitterness. Simple and well-executed, but a touch boozy.

Mouthfeel is creamy, as should be expected. Otherwise, a little thin and hot with alcohol.

Seems to me as if the ABV is just a touch too high form this beer to handle. The flavor is a bit on the simple side as well, but this style isn't really about complexity.

My first Mike Hess beer from the can, and I love it! It's dark like a brown ale with dank aromas. The first thing that hits you is the creamy texture. Has a molasses and slight bitter chocolate taste. Even though it's pretty dark, it's on the lighter side, although the creamy texture gives it some body. I've had a few cream ales, but this is my favorite by far! I could drink this everyday! Mike Hess Brewing...!!!
