Our take on the cream ale style blends qualities of both a lager and an ale fermentation. We brewed the same base beer and lagered half at cooler temperatures to produce flavors and mouthfeel you only get from lager yeast strains. The other half was fermented at warm ale temperatures. The final product was blended together to produce a highly carbonated golden straw colored beer with both pilsner qualities and a malty backbone. Saaz hops linger in the mouthfeel, as well as the characteristic corn flavors of this style. One departure from the historical cream ale style was in raising the alcohol up to 7.2%.

Sweet malty nose, caramel and corn. Hazy auburn, thin head. Whole corn, less caramel. Grassy hops. Light body, alcohol not terribly evident until warm. Eh, itís a cream ale but one of the better ones Iíve had

Bomber from Spirits Manahawkin. Poured an okay looking deep amber, almost reddish, with a smaller quickly fading tight foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor is all grains. Notes of pale malts, corn, white grape skin, dough and a touch of nut shell. Palate is big and slightly harsh, syrupy light carbonation and a lingering finish. Meh, not my favorite from Slumbrew by any means.

Bomber. Pour is a murky golden amber with a vigorous off white head that diminishes to to thin wispy bubbles around the glass. Smell is sweet with caramel and pale malt with a touch of hops and vanilla. Taste is honey and caramel with a bitter hop finish and creamy mouthfeel. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bread, biscuits, fruit, and a little corn in the aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet. Finish is spicy, lightly bitter and fruity. Iím becoming a fan of this brewery--if youíre in the mood for something a little different, this is a really good choice.
