COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Pistachio Cream Ale has copious amounts of California pistachios, which creates a wonderful complexity of flavors. The aroma of the pistachios blending with the sweet malty fragrance is intoxicating. The sweet whipped cream flavors found within the beer complements the toasted pistachio goodness, lending to a sense of fullness, uncommon to lighter golden ales.

smells/tastes like pistachio ice cream without being sweet. i really enjoyed this brew for some reason. a unique experience. there was no abv listed, and i’m sure it’s fairly low. good beer for the style.

On tap at Sunset for their Shorts event prior to EBF. Pours a hazed gold. Sweet ice cream and pistachio pudding aromas. Smells pretty much just like a packet of Jello instant pistachio pudding powder. I wonder if they used the same flavorings in this. Toasty, sweet pudding. Sweet and nutty. Quite tasty.

Tap at Sheffield... Pours a hazy apple cider brown with a thin soapy white head... Thin nutty aroma with light caramel malt... Flavors are on the lighter side with a somewhat nutty fruity side. Creamy mouthfeel which was expecting with light carb.

Yellowish brown body. Aroma of pistachio nuts and caramel. Flavor is sweeter than its largely nutty aroma. More like pistachio pudding and less like the nut itself. Nice

Aroma has buts, cream and sweetness like lactose. Flavor is similar, nothing over the top but pretty tasty. I like the combination of the candied nuts with a hint of cream and sugar, a bit cakelike.
