Poured into a pint glass. Pours straw color with a tiny head. Smells of cereal grain. Tastes of cereal grain, but stronger than adjuncts, with just a tad of hop bite. Beer is heavily carbonated, light bodied, easy drinking. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Baltimore knows it's brewing and this one is a good one. It has an excellent taste and feel... it makes you feel like you are Camden Yards enjoying an Orioles game. I'm very pleased with overall texture when it hits the palette. This is definitely one of those beers that you want to have a pizza or chicken wings with.

I like it a lot and will more than likely get more in the future. It's a grand slam.

Pours a deep clear gold with a moderate amount of creamy white head. The head has decent retention and leaves solid small lacing. The aroma is light, with most it's most distinctive quality being dried grain. The taste Is also light but it has a little more punch to it, with more robust biscuit flavors and a nice clean hops. The body, too, is a light but not watery and has a nice clean finish. A solid, easy-drinking beer.

Nothing spectacular, but as a cream ale it is all you can ask for.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #90 (July 2014):

Clean, Grainy, Sessionable, Fresh

Sometimes beer just wants to be a beer, no fancy parading here but rather a super drinkable Cream Ale. A no brainer, just knock’em back. Proof that fizzy yellow(ish) beer can be of the “craft” ilk and taste great. This is the kind of session beer we want to grab liter mugs and throwdown!

Absolutely loved this on draft. So smooth and tasty. The creaminess isn't so heavy that it keeps you from wanting more.

I am in the process of clearing out some of therom the interminable backlog here at Chez Woody and it suddenly struck me that I have most, if not all of Full Tilt Brewing's beers, held in abeyance awaiting approved pics. This site has really sped up the process, but for a while, it was slow and once a beer went on the back burner, it became forgotten. My thanks to The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for being an ongoing resource of singles!

From the bottle: ""Full Tilt Brewing's Camden Cream [# 5] is our 5th release, but our 1st truly sessionable beer. Camden Cream was brewed with the light, creamy grain bill of 2-Row Pale, Bohemian Pilsner, Vienna, and Carahell malts and gently hopped with Amarillo and Northern Brewer hops. Finally, lager yeast is pitched and fermented at ale temps to your palate's delight. Crack one open and enjoy ... but why stop now? You still have 9 innings to go."; "Full Taste. Full Pride. Full Tilt."

After Pop!ping the cap, I commenced an aggro pour, resulting in two, fizzy, foamy fingers of off-white head with limited retention. Color was a gorgeous Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and of course, my old friends, Mammon, Midas and Croesus showed up for a taste. They have become much more civilized and so while they partook, I took a sniff. It was just like I remember Genny Cream in my youth! It had a honey-like sweetness along with a slightly nutty breadiness. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was definitely honey-like, but accompanied by a grassy hoppiness. Finish was semi-dry and I could easily envision crushing some of these during an outing at the ballpark.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of cream, malts, grains. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, grains, light hops, some cream. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good session beer.
