Cedar Cream Ale is an easy drinking, amber coloured ale. Brewed in the North-American style of cream ales, its sweet subtle nose is derived from the addition of cedar chips during fermentation and ageing. Pairs well with BBQ dishes such as steak and hamburgersID: 34935 Last updated 14 years ago Added to database 14 years ago

I find this to be a below average bre from the fine people at Trafalgar Ales and Meads. This beer is grassy from the aroma on through the flavour, and leaves a metallic aftertaste that is totally unpleasant. Certainly not in the same class as a Sleeman's Cream Ale.

The beer pours a hazy reddish gold with a very thin short-lived whitish head. The aroma is mainly grainy malt, some sour smells, and very little hops. The mouthfeel is weak to medium bodied and very little cvarbonation. The flavour is sour, woody, grainy, and not very good.

Another Trafalgar brew at the LCBO, but this one has a weird label (not sure what they are aiming for - to much shit going on) and not sure about the words "cedar" and "cream ale" following each other. Anyways, has a best before date of July 2009, so even though their beers always taste outdated, I will give this one a try. Pours a clear golden-orange colour with hardly any carbonation. I guess this is for the smoothness ? Decent off-white head, that does not last too long, but creates a bit of lace. Grainy malt nose, with a little maple syrup in the background. Flat watery mouthfeel with a little stickiness in the end. The taste is a bit hoppy with the grain malt. The mild bitterness continues through the finish. Actually, probably one of the first Trafalgar I enjoy more then hating it. This brewery is getting better, and this is an interesting product (except for the lack of carbonation).

Bottle: Poured a light copper color ale with an average size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of grainy malt with no traces of hops or cedar noticeable. Taste is again dominated by some grainy malt. Not bad overall but just lacking character and no trace or supposed cedar aging or even close to resembling the style.

Bottle: Pours a hazed light copper-gold ale in the glass...non existent head and no lacing, weak carbonation. Aroma is almost undetectable...weak aromas of grains, some light sweetness some musty smells. Tastes far better than it looks. Nice herbal-woody hop signature rides just on top of a malt profile that gets almost too sweet (demerara adjunct?). Drying lightly bitter finish (cefar becomes barely detectable here) with a weird funky taste buried deep in the hop profile. I suspect this is the signature dirty yeast taste of this brewer that has been suppressed with a fresher than average LCBO sample. None the less, credit where credit is due,.... this is a palatable and tasty ale.
