Kiwanda Cream Ale is pale gold with a fruity, floral hop aroma. A sweet malty flavor and a smooth dry finish round out this tasty, refreshing brew!

Purchased a 22-oz bomber from the brewery’s internet sales. Pours a clear golden straw color brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of golden grain malt with a touch of powdered sugar, creme tartar, some flowery hops and corn grits. Taste is light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of golden grain malt, some creamed corn, flowery hops and white bread. Finish is light, crisp with some bread aftertaste that quickly disappears.

Draft @ Pelican. Pours a bright, clear golden color; thin white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Nice, crisp floral and sugar aroma; basic, clean nose; crisp and balanced. Medium mouthfeel: something just a bit off here: sugar, stale malts, and just a touch of vegetal / acrid flavor; something amiss; still, toasty and crisp at the core; solid presence; but the taste is a bit off in the beginning. Medium finish: sugar and mineral bitterness, crisp and dry ending.

Courtesy of Skyview. Gold color with a thin head. Aroma of a silo, filled with dried corn. Light corny taste. I definitely do not get the Cream Ale thing.

thanks to bitbucket tasting. Very light and enjoyable cream ale with some citrus and floral hops coming through. Moderate sweetness. Incredibly drinkable and enjoyable, unlike most cream ales I’ve had.

On tap as part of the sampler tray at the Brewery. This one was particularly surprising. The color was very light as one would expect from a "cream" ale. However, there was a light but noticeable hop bite. Extremely refreshing and enjoyable.

This bubbly golden ale poured with a decent white head and a citrus aroma. The flavor is bready and smooth, but not sweet as advertised.

22, thanks SuzyGreenberg! Pours clear light amber. Peachy and floral aroma. The peach comes through in the taste, along with bread and toffee sweetness. Dry finish.
