Happy birthday David! We wanted a light beer for the birthday boy. Light in color only. Our brewers have a sick sense of humor.

Funny story here, my mom (who is about as far from a beer drinker as you can get) went here for dinner and without looking too closely at the descriptions, I suggested she get the cream ale, expecting it to be a 4-5%, lighter, neutral-tasting beer. Well, it is surprisingly light with very little hop influence (touch of spiciness) and a creamy, soft texture on account of the wonderfully extracted maltiness (yet remains medium-bodied on account of the good attenuation). Anyways, fast forward a half an hour and my mom had to cut the meal short to leave. I hadn’t realized until too late this was 8+% abv! Haha, quite the sneaky beer, but very delicious and drinkable. Light gold body has a touch of chill haze and plentiful white head atop.
Draught at 3 Tides, Summer 2014.

An ok cream ale. Pours an ugly Budweiser yellow. Smell has some cream and clementines. Taste is sweet upfront with some citrus, and then a lingering sweet and salty aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery.
