50cl can - thanks a lot for throwing this in the mix, Allen! - Refreshing, medium-bodied APA with the right juicy malt-fruity hop balance and indeed a creamy biscuit base. Tastes a bit heavier, boozier than its 5.2 but compensates that with a wealth of deep and subtle exotic flavours: lichee, caramel, citrus zest. A true-to-style delight after a load too many of soapy German IPA-Kellerbiere.

Growler. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma was mainly small notes of caramel, bits of bready malt. Flavors were earthy with notes of bread, cream corn and a light sweet caramel finish. Did get some hops in the finish, just a touch of bitterness. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable and refreshing.

There’s not a lot of complexity here, but this is an epically delicious cream ale style beer. It’s malt-forward with only a little hoppiness at the end to snap off the finish. Pours with a nice fluffy head and tastes great super cold. There’s a tiny bit of banana and bubblegum hidden amidst the sweet malt and citrus tones to the hops.

Cider-amber with big, flotsam, off-white head, good legs / Light body, crisp & hoppy, very dry with bitter finish / Dry flavors of toasted grain, weed, lemon, pine, and dark caramel / Wouldn’t call this a cream ale, but a very satisfying dry, pale ale.
