Badass name for a beer, first off.

Second off, this:

Thirdly, it is billed as an alelager, and here's the website's description of it:
Sky Cake is a unique and flavorful beer. We have affectionately dubbed it an aleger because it was fermented with a lager yeast at ale temperatures, which gives the beer flavor characteristics of both. Sky Cake has a smooth malt start that is complimented by lots of hops to create a full flavored, yet balanced drinking experience.

So... I'm kind of fucked when it comes to classifying this. It looks and tastes like a cross between an amber, a hoppy brown, and a cream ale, and since ambers tend to be the most malleable of the categories that's what I grouped it under.

The beer's malt profile is somewhere between nutty and earthy, and it's very well complemented by an aggressive, medium-bitter hop profile that's a mix of flowers and resinous pine. But where the beer really shines is its spectacular, creamy body. It goes down like silk.
