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.

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.
