For the past 75 years, when the mountain air begins to warm in spring, thousands of hikers accept the challenge of traversing the 2,181 mile Appalachian Trail. Along the way, those weary travelers find the familiar white “blaze” trail markers to be a refreshing site guiding them from Maine to Georgia. A similar, original American tradition is the Cream Ale, a clean, dry ale designed as an alternative to mass-produced lagers. Keeping on the path of full flavored, craft beer, our Honey Cream Ale incorporates nearly four pounds per barrel of pure Appalachian honey, rather than adjuncts like corn or rice. The result is a light, crisp, slightly-sweet, session beer evenly balanced between smooth malt, a hint of floral hops, and honey sweetness.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Appearance- a slightly clear light brown color a small off-white head. Aroma- a great honey aroma with some malt and bread come through. Taste- a really appealing honey flavor with some citrus and malt really give this an excellent flavor. This is an outstanding cream ale. Highly recommended.

jackl (8535) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle @ 3N Share. Gold with a small white head. Nose is strongly of corn cake. Honey. Quite sweet. Some melon. Taste is similar. Ridiculously sweet. Loads of honeyed corn cake. Lemon and Orange peel. Light but sort of oily. Not my thing.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Gold yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is sweet corn and I may even get the corn. Sweet maltiness, light corn, and the honey flavor. Medium body with good carbonation. Solid cream ale

This is not my favorite style of beer, but it is well done for what it is. Bready malts with a hint of sweetness, light and easy to drink.

12 oz can. Canned on 08/06/2014. (Mr. Bill’s) Roanoke, VA.
Hazy mid-brown colour with a tiny white head. Mild sweet malty aroma. The flavour is sweet toffee, mild honey and malt. Maybe a bit too easy.

tasted at Brew Do - a bit of honey floral, Coors light’ish, bit of honey sweetness on finish, but not impressive

Draft at the VA Craft Brewers Festival, Devils Backbone, 8/24/13. Pours a hazy golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of pale malts, honey, mild corn. The taste is honey, pale malts, corn, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, well balanced. Nice cream ale.
