COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

Somewhere in Maine: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is sort of fruity and sugary with some bozziness. Taste is sort of sweet. It is a bit boozy. Weird and metallic. Not the besf thing.

Bill Becker (1321) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 25, 2017
16 ounce can. Pours a hazy reddish gold, an inch of foam, respectable lacing. Smells malty; caramel, biscuit, almost no bitterness, notes of vanilla and toffee. Taste is heavy on the caramel and vanilla, lighter on the toffee, light bitterness that seems to lean on the grassy side. Mostly sweetish finish. Tasty and enjoyable. A treat.

16 oz. can purchased at 7 Eleven, Kittery. Hazy dark golden color, full frothy head. Aroma is mild grain, yeast, traces of vanilla.

. Vanilla and sweet grain flavor. The bitterness is on the low end with a distinct grassy note. The mouthfeel is nice and does have a nice texture. ABV is mostly hidden. A very simplistic style overall but certainly drinkable without any issue.
