2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a clear thin copper body under a smaller white foamy head. Aroma of grains, corn cob, straw grass, slight sugary veggies. Body is medium, fuller carbonation, lasting aftertaste. Flavor of vanilla muffin, grains, white grape, some corn husk. Not the most complex beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, mine says 4.2% abv. Nose very slight, pale malt with a touch of corn. Pours orange-golden with very little carbonation and a rocky white head. Crisp and refreshing, lightly sweet and floral, touch corn but more bread. Thin medium body, lightly spicy, more alcohol shown than expected but still very little. Really great at meeting its admittedly low expectations; has a ton in common with BMC mass-appeal lagers (except for the slightly fuller mouthfeel), this includes the presumption of a headache and the weird sweet-floral-grainy aftertaste that just does not go away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
