COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

A: Golden shower with a nice creamy, thick white head. S: Dry grass/hay. T: This really resembled a BMC pilsner or lager more than a Cream Ale. Not much flavor. M: Thin and slightly dry. O: I was expecting this to be a bit more like Boddington’s or one of the other cream ales I have had. I was hoping for much more as the other Pelican beers were pretty good.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear pale gold color with a small white head that leaves a lasting film and ring. Aroma of roasted marshmallow without the char (reminds me of the smell of when we used to put Peeps in the microwave as kids), grassy hops, sweet malts, and peppery spice. Flavor of sweet malts, straw, crackers, grass, dry grains, and spicy hops. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Decent cream ale, but as I’ve said before this isn’t my favorite style.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Draft: Light, creamy and smooth texture. Slight sweetness -- caramel, sweet bread and cola. Mild bitterness is mostly balancing. Faint herbs in the aroma. Pleasant, easy-drinking beer.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bottle… Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011 … Pours golden with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma features honey malt with a pinch of white pepper. Medium to full-bodied and lightly oily with lively carbonation. Nicely balanced, malt-forward flavor. Adequate bitterness compliments without distraction. Crisp, modestly sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of BastionShaw!

presario (4606) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Sample tray. Pale yellow. Faint scent but they are brewing today and there is an aroma of yeast throughout the bar. Nice light ale with hop finish. Very nice for a starter/into beer.

Bright pale gold, frothy sticky bright white head. Sweet nectar aroma, herbal, fresh and lush. Little lavender. Great refreshing cream ale, faint caramel, some cherry blossom, dry body throughout.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Golden in color with a fizzy white head. Clear as day. I could almost see my fingerprints through the glass. Very smooth. A little sweet. This would be an excellent beer for a hot day.

Bomber served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours clear mid-yellow with a medium-sized white head. Short retention and lace. Light floral hop aroma with dough and a little funk. Mild sweet flavor Light-med body, prickly carbonation, creamy texture. Short dry finish. Refreshing brew for a light meal or a warm day. Not a nightcap.
