COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoosier daddy? Is it Eugene Debs, or Bob Knight? David Letterman or John Mellencamp? NABC unambiguously salutes all Hoosier daddies, wherever they are, whatever they do, and whomsoever they do it for, or to.

@ Whitey’s Wine and Liquor / Lawrenceburg IN --- Pleasant aroma of caramel and grapefruit. Very dark cherry, near opaque, thick, solid 1/2" ivory head, waves of lace. Taste is clear caramel malt with light biscuit and maybe a little raisin. The taste grows nicely through the palate, adding assertive hops and some carbonation, but, in this case, hops that blend very well with all that has come before. The finish slowly releases back to malt. A tasty ale. Recommended.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent amberish brown with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells pleasantly sweet and malty with mild notes of candy. Tastes like it smells with a lighter and somewhat dry mouthfeel for the style. Good beer.

2/19/2011: NABC Hoosier Daddy Crimson & Creme Common... Aroma: Hoppy, sweet grapefruit; rich caramel. Appearance: Really deep amber color; close to opaque; minimal ring of beige-colored foam. Flavor: Pine, deep caramel; sugary sweetness with a hint of moasses; milk chocolate and hops in the finish; finish falls off quickly. Palate: Medium body; calm and smooth; slightly milky texture. Overall: Another intersting brew! Good beer!

Draught sample (6.6% ABV; 66 IBU) at New Albanian Brewing Company in New Albany, IN. Rating #22 for this beer.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. Deep amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, strawberry, leafy hops and canned green beans. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Strong grain, vegetable taste combined with a lingering bitterness. Like eating bitter green beans. Not a fan.

Patrickctenchi (3942) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bomber: Pours deep red-brown with a craggy, off-white head. Scent is peppery, toffee malt. Taste is the same..heavily peppered. Caramel, but a bitter...doughy..earthy bitter... Not the greatest offering from New Albanian.

Travlr (12945) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Draft at the source. Clear light amber color, small white head. Aroma of caramel and nutella on toast. Taste tesembles old time cream soda, but with better bslance, namely the kick of bitterness at the finish. Nice.

22 ounce bottle
This is not the best beer that NABC has cranked out but it was fairly affordable and palatable. Cream ales are not meant to be over the top productions. As a bonus this makes them perfect for the summer heat.

Aroma / Appearance - The opaque ruby red body shimmers in the dying sunlight. Fluid and bubbly, it is covered by a soft layer of head. Vanilla, cream soda, and slightly burnt white toast is straightforward without any tricks.

Flavor / Palate - Chewy mouthfuls of velvet cake wash across the tongue. A rich layer of cream cheese icing is followed by burnt toast. It hangs in the back of the throat for a while. Unremarkable and plain this is a fine regional beer. Don’t go out of your way to get a bottle if you can get other NABC releases instead though.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Bomber from Liz. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is light roast malt with some spicy hints. Med body. Flavor is red roast malt with the lactose seemingly present. There’s some definite bitter with the passage of the malt. Not sure - but might be citrus. Pretty tasty. Finishes moderately bitter, but sits the fence on dry.

bluejacket74 (1359) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2012
22 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a reddish/copper color with a half inch off-white head that fizzled away somewhat quickly. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet, it smells mostly like caramel malt, along with some bready malt and a sugary/cream like aroma (I assume it’s the lactose). The brew tastes like caramel malt, dried fruit, cream, toffee and some light citrusy hops. There’s also a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a solid brew, it’s definitely worth trying. $7.49 a bomber.
