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.

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.

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.
