Can: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of crisp cereal notes and light floral ester is nice. Taste is mostly dominated by crisp cereal notes with some light floral ester and light residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well brewed and good style staple.

Can from the lcbo for $3. Odd sour cooked vegetable type flavour.

From notes

Appearance: It has a nice hazy orange color to it. It has a nice fluffy white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy and bready malts, wheat, light floral notes and a very faint fruitiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some bready and grainy malts upfront followed by light wheat, floral undertones and a faint fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. A very refreshing Cream Ale.

Serving type: can

Tallboy can from the LCBO; dated Apr 12 2016 and listed at 5.3%. Served well-chilled.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow colour, with roughly one inch of frothy white head seated atop. It fades off over the next 60 seconds or so, leaving behind a foamy collar and a modest ring of lace. The aroma consists of grainy, bready pale malt sweetness, interspersed with hints of grassy, floral hops and red apple fruitiness. It's coming across as a prototypical cream ale so far.

Straightforward flavour that focuses mostly on pale malts. It has a doughy, bready flavour profile with a restrained cereal grain sweetness; this is accompanied by lightly fruity hints of apple and pear. Finishes with floral, grassy hay hops, and a dirty, weedy hop bitterness that lasts to the finish. Off-dry aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel, with lively carbonation and relatively light body. Drinking multiples of this would not be a challenge.

Final Grade: 3.66, a B grade. Stack's Saturday Night Cream Ale is a decent quaffer, but will probably seem too bland and forgettable to earn the respect of a plurality of BAs. Truthfully, this is a serviceable beer at best - I realize that this style is not meant to be exciting, but Saturday Night still doesn't do much of anything new or memorable. A decent camping/firepit beer that will likely appeal to the macro masses; discerning and/or picky BAs should probably just skip this one, but if you're a fan of pale lagers or the like, this cream ale is at least worth a try.

473ml can served cold into a pint glass. Another offering now hitting southern Ontario stores from this brewery in Sudbury. This rendition listed at 5.3% ABV.

Appearance - pours a clear golden ale with minimal carbonation and a nice finger and a half of head that is short lived. Leaves behind no lacing or head after just a couple of minutes.

Smell - clean and grainy with a distinctive lactic acid addition that gives a slightly sour odor. Bigger nose than many in the style.

Taste - thin, grainy, with some sourness. Doughy. Quite a bit of sweetness in here, and caramel sweetness at that. Seems mildly forced, but distinctive.

Mouthfeel - light and easy drinking, carbonation is about right. No complaints here.

Overall - a respectable cream ale, that is worth giving a shot if you're a fan of the style.

Only my 9th cream ale, I find it a boring style. Since this is my first from a brewer bringing craft beer to the north country, I defer on a review.
