    When i think of a cream ale, I'll always think of Spotted Cow. So every Cream Ale out there I compare to the Cow. Not fair, maybe. Anywho, this brew I found weak. A little watery at times. Golden, nose is sort of grainy, taste is slightly bitter, some herbs.

    Nice head and plenty of lacing on this golden beer that bubbled the whole time. I don't drink many cream ales but this one was pretty good nice clean sweetness and easy to drink. Drank it at the brewpub

    A fairly weak showing. Weak in the nose, weak on the palate. Not sure what was going on with this beer. I know it's a cream ale, but can it at least have something going for it? Slightly hopped, lightly sweet in both nose and palate. Watery consistancy. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm open to that suggestion. I just didn't really find it all that appealing to me.

    Golden, creamy white head. Weak aroma of citric fruit and vanilla. Creamy, light flavour of oranges and honey with a short aftertaste of grapefruit and straw

    Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, white creamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with hints of berries. Peaches and some other fruits in flavour. Also some notes of banana. Soft and smooth until a hoppy finish. Peaches and hops in aftertaste.

    Light gold color, slightly hazy. Head is medium. Aroma is malty with some floral hoppyness. A medium bodied Cream Ale. Lighter flavors, as expected for a Cream Ale. The mild malts are well balanced by the mild floral hops. Nicely balanced beer. Fruity and refreshing. It not the kind of beer you would expect from a Pacific North West brewery. Mild and kind of subtle. Nice beer. Etched/Painted Beer bottle. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Wonderful appearance for this beer, light amber almost hazy beer topped by a good sized off-white head that fades to a great lace all down my glass. Great floral hop aroma complimented by some fruitiness. Great tasteing beer I have here..creamy malty flavour..very fruity crab apple comes to mind maybe granny smith apples..not too much hops to speak of, but they are present always. Great feel in the mouth nice and smooth. A most excellent brew and very very drinkable..its great on tap to at the Pelican Brew pub..this is great drinking outside on the patio in summer with views of the monsterous rock and the waves beyond!
