Trafalgar Brewing Cedar Cream Ale

A thin and short lived white head on a moderately dark amber coloured beer.
The aroma is quite malty and sweet with honey and hints of what might be cedar wood.
The feel is nice, thick, and creamy. No watery or high carbonation feels.

Taste is quite pleasant off the top. A solid honey like malt base with a nice grassy and citrus sparkle to it. There is a very light woodsey middle to this beer which just might be cedar like.
The sweet malty tastes predominate in this one, like a good ale. I really like the creamy smooth feel of it and the bright hop finish is just enough to refresh without trying to take over the whole taste profile.

I think I will be buying this one again.

Trafalgar Brewing - Maple Bock

Pours very dark and clear, Coke coloured. A thin and short lived tan head.
Noticeable maple aroma along with hints of coffee and chocolate.
Feel is nicely full, creamy and rich.
Tastes are interesting. The first hit is coffee, chocolate and caramel, a very light citrus comes through and then a long lingering maple syrup finish, hints of vanilla and an indescribable and faint sour taste linger along with the maple.
It's a touch on the sweet side for me but not too bad at all.
I usually worry about Trafalgar's beers because they are not as consistent as they should be but this is a very nice Bock to start with and the maple tastes set it off nicely. I hope they maintain the quality of this one, it's a good seasonal addition to their line up.

Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this was the worst brew I ever tried to drink. It frothed & foamed all over my kitchen counter upon opening, continuing to do so for several minutes. Watch it happen here. http://vimeo.com/21860291 I emailed the company with my concerns, but never heard back from them. I'll be doing what it takes to avoid their product in the future.

Trafalgar has some serious consistency problems. I get one bottle that is excellent and the next undrinkable. I like that they want to experiment, that's a good thing, but you do that with a pilot batch, fine tune and tweak it, get exactly the taste you are looking for and then lock it in. Trafalgar seems to experiment with their production runs and it hurts them badly.

Beer Quote of the day

But if at church they give some ale And a pleasant fire for our souls to regale. We'd sing and we'd pray all the live long day. Nor ever once from the church to stray.

— Old New England proverb

(Sing along folks: Give me that old time religion!)
