Notes/Commercial Description:
‘Gansett Cream is made with quality ingredients like 2-row pale, Munich, Vienna, and Cara-malt for a creamy head! We used Columbus hops for bittering and a touch of Willamette hops for a slight hop aroma. Bright gold in color and brilliant in clarity, this session ale delivers an extra pop of hop bitterness found only in cream ales of the early 1900′s.

A: Clear and golden in color, topped by a big white head that has a good amount of retention and low lacing.

S: Aromas have straw, hay and grassy notes from hops and yeast, with a slight malty sweetness.

T: Not heavy on flavor, with sweet pale malts, and a low bitterness from the grassy hops.

M: Light bodied with a high amount of carbonation, the finish is more dry that initially detected in the taste with some supporting light bitterness.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #64 (Apr 2012):

LOOK: Shiny gold, big head

SMELL: Clean, crackers, fresh-cooked cereal, herbal hop, mild nose

TASTE: Fresh, crisp, slick, grainy, cooked grain, hop bitterness, leafy, dried grass, hop oil, herbal; dry, grassy finish

A solid go, this shows more character than most versions that are true to this style. Balance and drinkability seem to be the prime directives here, both of which they nailed.
