Bomber from Letspour. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of corn, toasted grain, honey and a mild herbal hoppiness. The taste is toasted grain, corn, honey, grassy finish. Medium bodied, crisp, well balanced. Excellent cream ale.

Being someone who has not gagged at maybe 3 out of 20+ cream ales Ive tried, I didnt hate this beer. Im trying to gain an appreciation for cream ales as a style but I find my palate just doesnt want to cooperate. That being said, from draft, a sweet bready goodness emanates from the glass immediately and it has a beautiful golden straw color that will catch light and your attention from a distance. Thats about as elegant as I get in the description because the taste is nothing to write about. General adjunct flavor or corn and oats, with a very lagery finish leave me wanting to push it away but I continue on to try and enjoy this beer. Its just not for me but I appreciate the quality and complexity of its creation.

Pours clear golden yellow with white head. The aroma has pale make, earthy hops and pretty clean. It has a very light crisp body with sharp carbonation. It has pale malt, sulfur, sweetness and fresh cut grass. Nice.

Meilby (11027) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2016
Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, tartness, vinegar and hint of popcorn. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long slightly tart and citrus finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft. This beer have gone bad but I feel like its probably better this way.
