COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cream Ale (first brewed 1994; occasional release). This unfiltered ale is golden in color, medium light in body and moderate in the hop character. Cream ale is made by using ale yeast fermented at colder temperatures (like a lager). The colder ferment causes a slower, more gradual fermentation and a smoother flavor with only a very subtle fruity flavor. Cream ale is a hybrid style; it has traits of both ale and lager.

Goodgrief (1795) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sampler from brewery. Cloudy straw color, smallish head. Grainy. Not "creamy" but very grainy with a mild citrus bite. Heavily carbonated, maybe a tad too much. Pretty good.

johnnnniee (2340) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from the brewery shop. Pours a medium golden color with a huge creamy bubbly bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of floral and earthy hops with a fair amount of bready pilsner maltiness and a light touch of fruit and corn. The flavor is clean bready with a touch of honey and corn on the malt side with a solid shot of earthy hop flavor. Light hop bitterness is present but doesn’t let this on skew from the malty side. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugar watery mouthfeel. Solid cream ale, I really enjoyed this!

bob_w (327) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
a bit of a fruity aroma, a little estery. smooth malt flavor with some fruitiness. medium body, not much hop flavor or bitterness, but it builds towards the finish with a clean merging of the soft malt flavor with a good hop bit. fairly clear medium honey gold color. a bit of a tangy note. creamy texture/flavor as it warms.

On tap at Portsmouth during our New England trip. Pours blonde. White head. Nose has a bit of light grain and faint hops. Flavor is fairly mild without too much. Relatively easy drinking but very basic.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Draft, served in a pint. Clear yellow, steady layer of foam with great retention. Easy sweet malt, grain and a moderate hop in the finish to help balance it. The hops play well with the grain. Texture / mouthfeel follow this style. Simple beer in a simple style. The Brew master; does a wonderful job making a simple, light style desirable.

Cask Stillage from the Jug at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver 30/09/2005 (As Carlyle Cream Ale) Clear golden coloured and hoppy. Creamy on the palate with a hint of dryness in a lasting finish.

1st on my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Pours yellow with a ring head. Not much of a nose. Taste is sweet, light and really there ain’t much there. Nothing to write home about.

Bought this bomber at the brewery. Poured to a light golden orange with thin off-white head that lasted awhile and left little lacing. Nose was a mild floral hop, and the mouthfeel of this medium bodied beer was a bit on the thin side. Flavor followed the mild floral hop theme and the finsih was medium short and unremarkable. Not a bad session beer, but nothing great either.
