A very refreshing, crisp beer. Pours a cloudy light straw-yellow with a substantial head of medium lifetime. Of course a beer at this ABV does not last long and is meant to be consumed quickly. A yeasty aroma with creamy vanilla notes that entices one to partake of the brew. The all important taste is excellent, sweet bready malt and a tantalizing slightly floral hop finish. Reminiscent of Mexican sweet breads. This is a very sessionable refreshing ale which I enjoyed completely.

Another outstanding winner from the experienced brewers at Neshaminy Creek.

Neshaminy Creek Croydon Cream Ale
$6 on tap at Rex1516, Philadelphia, PA 04.12.2014

Appearance: Hazy golden body. Short head of creamy bright white froth is short lived. Minimal lacing (possible dirty glass?).

Aroma: Lightly fruity, sweetish malt, delicately floral/grassy.

Flavor: The flavor follows the aroma. Light, straightforward maltiness is a touch sweet. Notes of apple appear, some citrus/pineapple, and background pine. The hops are delicately floral, and grassy/spicy, almost like soft coriander. Residual, sweet malt/fruit finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body. Moderate, smooth carbonation.

Overall: Not a bad beer. A little bit fuller in character than you might expect of a cream ale, but not quite a "blonde" ale.

2/14/15 at the office. Decent for a very low alcohol. A little Burt rubber taste but overall drinkable for a low alcohol.

Poured from a 12 oz. can, and yes, since you asked, that can did reach me by way of the incredible woodychandler. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, some grains and malts are present. Taste is grains, bready malts, a bit of lemon, a good thirst quencher. Feels medium bodied in the beer and probably would be better enjoyed on a hot, summer day.

The breweries take on a lawnmower beer. Poured slightly hazy yellow. Fluffy white two finger heading which left tremendous lacing. Very crisp cracker like malt, with a nice bitter hop balance in both nose and taste. Slight linger of hop in the finish. Very smooth, balanced and a trace of lactic like feeling in the mouth. I hate to make it sound like favoritism but this brewery is no joke very good stuff coming out of here.
