Sleeman Cream Ale (64*)

UPDATE 4/19/07.Relatively new, brown bottle packaging – I still like it!

Personally I like the packaging – the minimal neck label and the clear bottle. I know most will dislike the glassware, but I think it makes for a pleasant visual change. The beer looks good in the bottle.

Cream Ale? Well I’m not sure about that. I suspect that this has had sufficient adjunts added to make it not much more or less than a macro adjunct lager.

Slight skunkiness in the smell (alright – clear glass, I know) – but to be truthful this is no worse than many other macro’s in dark glass. Good looker with a nice head, but the tatstes are utterly non-descript.

Typical lack of body as one would expect from a North American macro, no distinct aromas and instantly forgetable in most respects.

One thing in its favor – a clean aftertaste. Lawnmower potential but not much else.
