3.41/5 rDev -8.6%
Served on-tap at Selin's Grove Brewing Co in Selinsgrove, PA
A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some faint brassy highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy white head that reduces to a medium patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grainy malts with hints of light fruit (apple and peach).
T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of grainy malts with some hints of light fruit sweetness - apple really stands out.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Lightly creamy.
O: Sessionable but a touch too sweet for my tastes.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with about one finger of fluffy white head that doesn’t last long.
The scent is of sweet malts, notes of fruit and some hop presence.
The taste is of sweet cream, sweet malt, notes of corn and floral hops.
Light body, smooth and a bit creamy, moderate carbonation.
This was an overall good beer, nothing extraordinary but I wouldn’t mind having this again.

This poured out as a clear looking yellow color with a fizzy white head on top. The head fades and doesn't leave any retention or lacing. The smell of the beer is mostly grain aromas with a little bit of hops as well. The taste of the beer was decent, it had some corn and malt flavors with a hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel was sharp, big amount of carbonation with I felt made this beer much too harsh. Overall it's a decent beer, not the nicest cream ale I've had.

Despite numerous visits to this pub over the last 5 years this is the first time I've tried the cream ale. Friday 9/28.
poured from the tap, looking very nice, pale yellow, with good head.
Not much in the aroma department, tough to get anything actually
Taste was ok. Not a big fan of creams, but not unpleasant. Just...not special I guess
Mouthful was not particularly memorable
Overall, perhaps this beer would do the trick on a much warmer day. With so many other great beers at this brewpub, this one fades into the background.

Served in a pub glass, the brew appears a clear golden yellow color. A thin film of white head sits atop. As the cap slowly fades, it leaves strings of lace sticking to the glass. A light swirl revives a thin film back to the surface.
The smell is sweet with a scent mildly reminiscent of corn that mixes with a herbal hop character. A faint touch of sulfur is noted across the back but I'm stretching to find more characteristics here as the overall aroma is quite mellow but enjoyable for the style.
The taste includes sweet grainy malt that is a little bland, not in a bad way, just a type of sweetness thats unidentifiable outside of mildly resembling corn just like the aroma led on. Mild fruits such as pear and apple skin come out as the brew warms. A bready sort of grain feel is noticed in the aftertaste. Faint hop inclusion provides some contrasting flavor without much bitterness but it keeps everything in check.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is very well done for the style. It isn't something I would seek out or drive there just for simply because it is seemingly always available and easily approachable for the folks who are looking for an icebreaker.
