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.

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.

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.
