Degustada en la cervecería Les 4 Pedres de Badalona. Fue mi primera Mikkeller/Revelation Cat y la verdad es que fue una grata sorpresa. Aroma seco, a lúpulo, flores, cítricos, malta. Poco carbónica, floral y amarga al final del trago. Una buena cerveza.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is quite pretty: a glowing, light, hazed yellow with a small, denser, off-white head. Not much retention or lace but Paradiso is notorious for shitty looking pours. Baby lace emerges from fizzy retention. Aroma is sugary lemon, citrus hoppy, lemon/lime Gatorade powder, light orange candies. As it warms, a quick peek in the nose blasts you with raspberry schnapps. Taste is fizzy up front, then moves to English biscuit malty with mild diacetyl and soapy hops. Very soapy back end moving to massive bitterness verging on astringent chemical and heavy nut skins. Large carbonation presence detracts from mouthfeel. Large resinous hops creates a 100 IBU explosion that is just so far off from Cream Ale it is hilarious. Would put most American Pale Ales to shame. Definitely way off for style, a gimmick, and should be moved to the APA category.

6A. Cream Ale BJCP Style Guidelines

Aroma: Faint malt notes. A sweet, corn-like aroma and low levels of DMS are commonly found. Hop aroma low to none. Any variety of hops may be used, but neither hops nor malt dominate. Faint esters may be present in some examples, but are not required. No diacetyl.

Flavor: Low to medium-low hop bitterness. Low to moderate maltiness and sweetness, varying with gravity and attenuation. Usually well attenuated. Neither malt nor hops prevail in the taste. A low to moderate corny flavor from corn adjuncts is commonly found, as is some DMS. Finish can vary from somewhat dry to faintly sweet from the corn, malt, and sugar. Faint fruity esters are optional. No diacetyl.

Classic American (i.e., pre-prohibition) Cream Ales were slightly stronger, hoppier (including some dry hopping) and more bitter (25-30+ IBUs). Bitterness rarely rises above 20 IBUs.

Mortlach (1314) - Rome, ITALY - APR 26, 2011
26/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata vivissima, limpida e brillante, con lieve schiuma biancastra. Al naso risulta ben equilibrata nelle sue componenti maltate e luppolate, ma un po’ assente. In bocca sprigiona tutte le sue potenzialità: attacco dolciastro, fruttato, appena caramellato, con finale amaro morbido e mai eccessivo. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione corretta. Rinfrescante, beverina, una ottima birra da bere in quantità industriali.

Cirrhosis (1266) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
Murky tannish brown…basically looks like Medimusle (what a horrid attempt at spelling) I haven’t used that comparison in a long while. Comes complete with a long lasting thick skiff floating on top. Lots of hops in the nose with the main focus on the Amarillo hops, for me that aint good I’m not a fan of those. The malts remind of toasted white bread. The aroma seems so very hoppy, to hoppy for the style in my opinion. Taste is thin and has large amounts of bitter slightly citrusy hops. Malts are hidden and hard to find in the mess of hops but they do have a mild biscuit/toast flavor. Beer is ok I guess maybe a touch on thin side but ok it’s just not what I thought it should be nor was what I was in the mood for.

ClubGonzo (4753) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2011
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy orange body, medium creamy white head. Nose is pine and hints of apricot and grass. Taste is pine, grass and hints of apricot and some kind of sour-ish maltiness that I don’t care much for but do encounter in beers from time to time (hard to describe). Smooth, near-slick mouthfeel. OK, but not great. If this is among the best you can get in this rather obscure genre, I won’t be hunting for other specimens any time soon. Not even with a Tommy gun, as the bottle indicates.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2011
Tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a near clear pale golden body with a small side sticking head. Aroma is really low with hints of citrus and orange. Otherwise quite anonymous nose on this. I was expecting a cream-like body texture but that’s not at all what this was. Body is light and medium, and the carbonation is quite soft. Flavors is citrus dominated with notes of clementines and lemon-zest with quite low hopy bitterness. Nice and drinkable but don’t let the name fool you; This is not something you can serve your cat - OR make ice cream of.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2011
Bottle. A small, white head sits on top of this hazy, yellowish pale golden beer. Citrusy hops dominates the aroma, leaving little room for the malts. Medium body, with flavors of citrusy hops, pine cones and a pleasant bitterness. Some pale malts in the background. Bitter finish. A beer that drinks very easily, would be nice to have a few of these for the warmer days of spring and summer. 110107

Scopey (9382) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2011
On tap at CP&K. It pours hazy golden yellow with a thin foamy white head. The nose is hay, pine, bread, grapefruit and lactose. The taste is surprisingly bitter and consists of lactose, grass, pine, lemon, grapefruit, apricot, pineapple and bread, with a moderate length dry-bitter finish. A pleasant brew for sipping on a sunny afternoon.
