COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck Hook is a traditional cream ale that is sure to bring relief from a hot summer day. Brewed with a mix of ale and lager yeast, this truly American-style beer is straw-colored with a creamy head of foam from the large proportion of 6- row barley. It has a mild perceived bitterness, similar in flavor to pilsners due to the addition of Czech Saaz hops. The mouthfeel is dry, with a slightly sweet, corn-like maltyness. The Duck Hook is a refreshing, sessionable beer that is sure to make the summer heat just a bit more bearable.

This was bought at Southern Pines Growler in a half growler. It pours straw colored with a creamy head that takes a while to disappear. The aroma is full of yeast carrying earthly aromas. There is a bit of lacing on the class as the head was reduced. It has a slight sweet taste with a compliments of hops and a dry finish. It is quite mild, with just a touch of bitterness. Overall a pleasant beer.

Draft at Hickory Tavern. Pours clear gold with no head. Aroma is faint orange, guava, lemon. Taste is citrusy and a lot of malt breadiness. I suppose that’s your "creamy". It went down easy though I wouldn’t order another one.
