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%.

AirForceHops (7676) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2017
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.

Strykzone (7556) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bomber. An orange amber beer that is hazed and sports a golden tinted two finger head. A lot of carbonation floating up from the bottom of the Spiegelau glass. A pleasant yeasty fruit aroma with soft malts and tangerine. A mild bitterness that settles in the back of the throat in the start. Noble hops? Nice malts are more complex than in the aroma and the fruit is softer. It tastes a little hot with the alcohol coming through.

wlajwl (7006) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Aroma is spices, hops and pizza dough. The flavor is malt sweetness, a decent hop bite, a hint of banana/bubble gum, and a mix of hops and malts in the finish, not smooth or crisp but balanced. Such a strange style to make an imperial of, good for what it is, much more hoppier than a normal cream ale.

mansquito (6787) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2017
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.

ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/13

Aroma: Th one has a nice doughy and malty nose, yeasty, plenty of spice, and some grassy notes
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel-orange color with a small white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste mildly sweet, yeasty and doughy, with a mild bitterness, and a spicy finish
Palate: It is medium bodied with a rather tingly feel and a bit of boozy heat on the finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice beer. There’s definitely a dearth of quality cream ales on the market. This one helps fill that void, but I’d like to see more breweries tackle this style.

obguthr (6586) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2014
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, it’s a cream ale but one of the better ones I’ve had

3.3
dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2014
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.
