COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Often called your typical American lawnmower beer, cream ales are not unlike their light lager cousin. Brewed with two and six row continental barley, flaked maize, a touch of Munich malt, and of course, sugar, our Cream Ale is light, refreshing, and easy to drink. We also use American Chinook and Liberty hops that give it a touch of hop bitterness and a hint of floral aromatics

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a two finger thick and billowy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the heaviest of a cracker like aroma mixed with a bit of wheat and some slightly yeasty smells. Along with these aromas comes some sweeter aromas of a caramel and toffee nature as well as a hint of a grassy smell. Taste – The taste begins with a slightly sweetened bready taste with some notes of a yeastiness mixed within. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade a bit giving way to more grainy and grassy tastes. All the while a little bit of a sour lemon and an apple taste come to the tongue and with the grassy and hay flavors getting stronger and leaving a somewhat drier and rather crisp taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thins as would be expected for a brew of only 4.2 % with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style and very light abv. nature of the brew the feel is great and makes of a very easy drinking brew. Overall – A decently easy drinking and less sweet cream ale. A good session style brew.

JFGrind (1844) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Cream Ale is an easy drinking style of beer that few micro breweries attempt to produce. So kudos to Neshaminy for brewing a medium bodied Cream Ale with a pleasant hop aroma and bitterness. Surprise draft at Miller’s Ale house in Northeast Philly.
