COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
‘Gansett Cream is our first year-round craft style and is a perfect example of a Pre-Prohibition cream ale — only slightly hoppier. Available on tap and in 16oz cans, ‘Gansett Cream delivers that refreshing straight from the barrel taste of days gone by. ‘Gansett Cream is made with quality ingredients like 2-row pale, Munich, Vienna, and Cara-malt for a creamy head! We used Columbus hops for bittering and a touch of Willamette hops for a slight hop aroma. Bright gold in color and brilliant in clarity, this session ale delivers an extra pop of hop bitterness found only in cream ales of the early 1900′s.

16oz can from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a pale yellow golden with a bit of a white head. Aroma has maltiness, light sour fruits and honey.

Not a great example of the style. Too light. Despite the brewers description of more hops, I could not taste a note of bitter.

Metalchopz (2282) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Did this one a few years back when I went to the States. Poured a clean light golden colour with a creamy white head, long lasting and with decent lace. Very mild malt nose. Not really creamy though, just mildly dry. Stronger taste with some malt and a little bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and malty, but seems like a regular beer (macro).

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Clear golden straw under an impressively large fluffy white head which fades into a solid layer while leaving lace in its wake.
Nose: Creamy sweetness up front with fresh white breads and rolls in the back of the Italian and French variety. Faint touch of green grass underneath.
Palate: Soft bready mouthfeel matched by a soft bready middle. Dry grassy finish in the back. Sweet cereal grains and sweet rolls on top.
Final Thoughts: Not too shabby at all for a cream ale. Of the dozen or so cream ales I’ve tried over the years, the Narragansett Cream Ale is the best so far. Sweet and creamy yet balanced by a dry bitterness. I’d drink it again.
