On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The pour is a pale straw color with a white head.

S: Definitely some corn along with straw and grassy hops. There's a light floral note to it as well, and some biscuit malts and a bit of bread. Pretty basic cream ale aroma.

T: Slightly sweet with toasted grain, corn, biscuit malts, and bread. A soft hop bitterness, and some floral and grass notes. Somewhat sweet, but overall, a nice balance.

M: Light in body with a medium carbonation.

O: Cream ales are usually sort of a throwaway offering at a brewpub, but this one was a nice, balanced, easy to drink beer.

3.05/5  rDev -16%

Served on-draught into a strange curved pint glass at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, California. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of white colour, decent thickness, slight cream, and bad retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper.

Sm: Clean barley and malts. That's it. Very simple. A bit bland.

T: Clean full barley body without too much sharp carbonation. Hints of honey. Surprisingly little cream for a cream ale. Simple but fairly balanced. Boring but enjoyable. Pleasant and drinkable. It's no Kilkenny, but I like it.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nice thickness. Adequate carbonation. Fairly complementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Drinkable but a bit boring. I don't think I' get it again. Very drinkable - its best attribute.

On tap at Beachwood Long Beach.

A: Dark gold with a pillowy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass.

S: Sweet grains meld with faint fruity notes: apple and pear.

T: Grainy and lightly sweet with light fruity esters that bring to mind apple and pear. Low bitterness and a clean finish.

M: Light in body with medium carbonation.

Overall: Easy drinking, refreshing, and well crafted. An enjoyable representation of the style. I could drink a lot of this.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear gold with an off-white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grain and some grassy and herbal aromas. Taste is very much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good cream ale with a better taste than smell.
