I never had a cream ale before, but this beer blew me away.

Great change of pace, and a fine example of a cream ale. This one especially excels with a hint of dry hoppiness

A: a lot of sud action going on here, well carbonated. Pale yellow in color, semitranslucent, white head holding steady at 1/4" with decent amount of lacing being left behind.

S: very clean, mostly pilsner malt.

T: equally as clean, i can only notice the malty backbone and some corn notes.

M: medium bodied while being light, crispy and easy drinking. It dries your palate to some extent, slightly creamy but i'd say this is where it falls short in the category.

O: Idon't have much experience with cream ales (this would probably be my second one), but i couldn't detect any imperfections flavorwise. Everything seems to be well achieved for the style although it claims to be an "untraditional cream ale" would have liked it to be a bit more creamy though. Not as dry on the palate, but more fuller as you drink it.

Golden color, slightly cloudy, decent carbonation. Fruity and spicy flavor with a smooth, malty finish. All in all, not a bad beer. Pick one up if you get a chance.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours out with a clear golden color capped by an impressive head; looks like a pilsener and delivers nice lacing action

Smell: Bready with a hint of lemon and vanilla

Taste: Opens bready, with a touch of lemon building alongside the vanilla cream; the finish is slightly sweet

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshingly quaffable; a nice summer beer

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

Poured from a can into a pint glass. A cloudy yellow with a thick rich head and pleasing lacing. Smell is floral. Taste is of lemon and pepper, reminds me of a Belgian white or saison. Significant carbonation gives the beer a fizzy feel. Not like the Gennie of my youth!

12 oz. can poured into nonic
(no born-on date)

L: yellow, slight cloudiness but can see through it ... perhaps a hint of gold (orange) in it; weak 1/4-inch head of foam that dissipates quickly; keeps a decent collar of foam but there's almost no carbonation running up the column

S: lemon, grain, sour grain ... just a hint of sweet light malt but the lemon and grain overpowers it all; sour grain showing more and more ... hints of creamed corn

T: sweet biscuit/bread malt with a hint of pepper spice ... tons of sweetness; grain; taste is much sweeter than the smell ... there's no sour here

F: quite solid for a brew that looks half flat ... tons of carbonation, and a solid weight ... not watery; super drinkable

O: as i've worked through a six-pack, this one is growing on me. some of the new cream ales are almost sickly sweet and taste only like creamed corn -- they aren't undrinkable, but this seems to have just a pinch of some german/noble hops that is giving just a teeny spicy/black-pepper hop bite to help it balance. not a bad brew at all.
