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.

Enjoyed a pint on tap at PJ's in Medford. Slightly hazy light amber appearance topped with a thin head that quickly dissipated. Smells like a wheat soda cracker with a touch of toffee. Taste is mildly sweet with a bit of caramel on the finish. Even with such a low abv, it still has a great mouthfeel with enough chewiness to give it some character. Very nice job by Neshaminy.

Golden yellow in color with a slight haze. Poured with a billowy, fluffy white foam that reduced to a wispy cap. Bread , cereal and cornmeal aromas with light floral and metallic notes at the end. Smooth, delicate, creamy feel with a light crispness near the end. Bready malt and corn flavors up front followed by light tangy herbal hops through the middle. Herbal bitterness overtakes the sweet bready malt at the end as this finished with a semi-dry crispness and lingering yeasty and herbal hop bitterness.

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.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a two finger thick and billowy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the heaviest of a cracker like aroma mixed with a bit of wheat and some slightly yeasty smells. Along with these aromas comes some sweeter aromas of a caramel and toffee nature as well as a hint of a grassy smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a slightly sweetened bready taste with some notes of a yeastiness mixed within. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade a bit giving way to more grainy and grassy tastes. All the while a little bit of a sour lemon and an apple taste come to the tongue and with the grassy and hay flavors getting stronger and leaving a somewhat drier and rather crisp taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thins as would be expected for a brew of only 4.2 % with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style and very light abv. nature of the brew the feel is great and makes of a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – A decently easy drinking and less sweet cream ale. A good session style brew.

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.
