Farmer Ted’s Cream Ale is an indigenous American beer style created as an answer to post-prohibition German lagers. We pay tribute to the beers made on early, rustic systems by using natural ingredients like corn and barley to create a smooth and full-bodied, straw-colored ale. Reward yourself with a Farmer Ted’s after a long day plowing the fields, or just after mowing the lawn

I had this at Asheville Brew & View as a third choice (the other two beers taking the night off). It wasn’t exactly the best cream ale I’ve ever had, but it wasn’t half bad. It had a well presented vanilla taste to it. Try Wexford or Genesee instead, if you have the chance.

Draft at Catawba - South Slope. Poured a hazy light yellow color with a medium sized, fizzy white head. Aroma was light malts, some corn. Flavor was sweet malts, light corn notes. Light malts. Creamy body.

Sample at the Biltmore Village taproom. Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of herbal wheat, fruit and slight hops. Light body with flavors of wheat, sweet corn and biscuit malt. The finish is sweet and malty. Average overall.

12 ounce can - $2.00 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina. Appearance: Slips from the can a reasonably clear, yellow-tinged body with, well, no real head formation despite some active effervescence. Smell: A little bit sweet-scented on the nose with the expected corn-derived accents backed by a bit of malts and a faint, faint hint of fruitiness. Taste: Sweetish in taste, with a flavor reminiscent of Corns Pops with a honeyed sweetness. Minimal citrus accent and a subdued hint of spice, with a low overall bitterness. Semi-dry, soft finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: It’s fine (for a cream ale)!

Pours a very crisp clear pale color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is fruity, malty, crisp, hay, corn. Taste is sweet and thin, corn, hay, and malt. Very clean beer, slightly more favorable than most of the style, not bad.

BiereLuc (1170) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Jaune paille, peu mousseuse, peu effervescente. Nez minéral, avec des notes peu convaincantes de maïs. Ça ressemble à une Sleeman Cream Ale. C’est bien (puisque la Sleeman a déjà gagné des prix dans sa catégorie), mais rien ne la laisse se démarquer outre sa canette relativement jolie. Ce produit demeure une bière de soif avec un branding qui laisse croire à de plus fortes aspirations.

Can thanks to hot pat. Pale, hazy yellow with a bubbly, white head. Sweet fruit and hay. Light, fruity and very sessionable.

Slightly fruity smell, very pale appearance, taste is more like a cheap beer than the cream ale I expected, slight artificial creaminess in there...very fake tasting, very buttery, bleh,

I am a little perplexed at the low ratings for this beer. For the style I think it is spot on. Light grainy aroma. Crisp grainy malt on the front of the palate gives way to a slightly buttery diacetyl finish. Light bodied. It may not be a double IPA or imperial whatever but this is a good cream ale for sure.

DiarmaidBHK (3850) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Draft at Asheville taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Not much on the nose. Creamy on the tongue. Not much flavor but that’s never been the point with this style.

12oz can from Hops and Grapes in Hickory. Pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet cereal and grain. Tastes of sweet grain, wheat, earthy, grass, corn, little yeasty.
