Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s often said there is a better half responsible for making us whole, and so goes the inspiration for this ale. Its whole is born from a single recipe of 2-row pilsner, caramel, honey malts and cereal grains that balance with Cascade, Mt. Hood and Saaz hops. One half of the fermentation is cold lagered and the remaining half is finished as a warm ale fermentation. The result is a smooth and composed imperial cream ale well suited for contemplating your better half.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours somewhat hazy. Body is a pale orange hue that is quite close to yellow. A thicker, smooth head leaves sheets of lace.

S-Sharp, sweet grains. Some honey and an amorphous fruity aroma.

T-Sweet, grainy bread and honeyed biscuits or dough. Has a 'sharpness' to the flavor. I guess I will add the descriptor 'cream' here.

M-Medium bodied. Softer carbonation. 'Creamy'. A bit of alcohol heat surprisingly dry.

O- A cool idea but I'm not sure how much I enjoyed it. One full pint of those as enough for me.

Serving type: on-tap
