Pint cans for sale at Miller Park for the low, low price of 9 bucks each. The can was cute looking so I figured what the hell, but the guy selling them said "it's a cream ale, it's a cream, it's a cream," just like that, he said it three times.
The beer poured like a cream ale: darkish gold, decent white head. It smelled like a cream ale: adjunct grain, sweet barley, very little hops, and a handful of esters. Tasted... like a cream ale. Only adjunctier than I was expecting and with a decent hop heaviness near the back end.
Nothing great. Not worth its craft beer price, and not as good as heavy hitting cream ales such as Sunlight or Spotted Cow, but still pretty decent. Imagine if Naragansett cost twice as much as it does and you'd have this beer.
Serving type: can

Milwaukee Brewing Outboard Cream Ale. 5.0% Alc. by Vol. "That's local flavor!"
Last of the samples from MKE. Cream Ale is one of my least-liked beer styles. I'll strive to overcome that prejudice in order to discover whether this is a good one or no.
Clear, golden colored, sizable, staying crown of milky froth.
Aroma: Creamy. (Imagine that.) Negligible hop presence. Smooth maltiness. Pleasant enough stuff.
Taste: Open wide and down the hatch. Lands on the palate and spreads along nothing but smooth and creamy malt flavor. No need for anything else with this style. Easy drinking defined. Light-bodied and pleasing all around. Soft finish.
Good name for this one, as I can see this being adequate sustenance for a day on the lake.
So, with my ninth MKE beer down the hatch in total, I've come to realize that they do really well with styles that I would rarely, if ever, personally choose for myself.
And there ain't nothing wrong with that.
Serving type: bottle
