Danish: Yankee Cream Ale er på sin vis vores mest specielle øl og alligevel den mest ordinære af dem alle: Simpel pilsnermalt og ’forbudte ingredienser’ som majs og ris i mindre mængder - sammen med et par specialmalte - udgør denne US-klon. En cream ale kræver, at man bruger megabryggeriernes favoriter, majs og ris, men brygges den af ordentlige råvarer (ikke noget med pulvermajs, vi bruger hele majs og ris!) kan slutresultatet faktisk vække smagsløgene. That’ll teach them!
Så vidt historiebøgerne fortæller det, opstod en cream ale ud fra et forsøg på at efterleve en tørst-slukkende, europæisk pilsner, men i det varme amerikanske klima blev det til en over-gæret (altså varmt-gæret) ale i stedet! Humlen er selvsagt også fra den anden side af Den Store Dam - den herlige Cascade er én af dem - og kendetegnes ved den citrusfriskhed, der gør en cream ale så charmerende. (’Cream’ har i øvrigt intet med fløde at gøre, men refererer mere til ’blød og rund’.)
Konichiwa, Anjin-san!
Med sin lette krop, blide smag og citruskarakter er en Yankee Cream Ale mest egnet til det lyse kød. Syrligheden minder en del om appelsin og citron, hvorfor vi ikke tøver med at anbefale den til fisk. Den perfekte sushi-øl måske?
