COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Cream Ale is carbonated with nitrogen so it cascades as it pours. This gives the beer an extremly smooth mouthfeel. It is golden in color with a crisp hop flavor and aroma.

As pretty a beer as I might’ve ever seen. Golden yellow, thick foamy white head after the anti-bubbles a la Guiness. But that’s the best part. Aroma is nothing really at all. Flavor is nitrogen and banana/lemon/yeast/foam.

On tap empire farmstead. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is grassy hops grain a creamy note and some wheat. Taste is more of the grainy cream notes a nice light grassy touch.

Quite thick in consistency. Sweet and citrusy with a smooth creamy finish. Interesting but I won’t be seeking it out anytime soon.

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy yellow-gold color with a thin creamy white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, bready malt and fruit. The finish is creamy and mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Average overall.

I’ve never had a nitrogen infused beer which was this light. Smooth and refreshing with a creamy head. A nice touch with the nitrogen as it lends a very creamy texture to the beer and makes it just that much more tasty.

Straw pour, big creamy head. Aroma of grass and soap. Flavor is hoppy sweet. Initially overwhelmingly sweet but not so bad after a bit. Dry fresh mouthfeel.
