Our take on a pre-Prohibition-style "Cream Ale." This light, easy drinking thirst quencher shows pleasant aromas of crackers and fresh bread, prior to flavors of more crackery malt-derived notes, before a clean, dry, refreshing finish. An old and all-too-rare style brought back to life for the Summer months.

Sample pour at the source. Pours a clear yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has crackers and a near berry sweetness. Moderate sweetness in the taste. Light body and medium carbonation.

Reviewed from notes just found after an excursion driving through West Viriginia last summer. At the brewpub, this was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice light golden yellow color with a thin white foamy little head (bar pour). There wasn’t any lacing. The smell was your basic cream ale styled brew - light corn/rice adjuncts but nothing off-putting - basic cream ale sweetness. The taste was sweet and ended up leading to a sweet corn aftertaste and a watery finish (but its a cream ale, so no worries). On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and showed a great deal of sessionability to it with a smooth carbonation running about my mouth and tongue. Overall, not a bad cream ale, but its a style that isn’t exactly easy to make complex and show a great deal of character. Worth trying again - perhaps. If you’re at the brewpub, I say why not.

Half pint draft at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with small white head. Light/medium body, low carbonation, very little lacing, and light malt aroma. Taste is light creamy malt. Not one of their better brews.
