Poured from the bottle into an American pub glass. A dark gold brew, just grading into light bronze territory, with around two fingers of resilient beige head. Aroma was unexpected and compelling, mainly tangy English hops (!?) propped up by doughy sweet malts, accompanied by some fruity yeast esters that recall pears and light citrus rind. Taste is correspondingly fruity and reasonably sweet, with a blood-like metallic tang. This brewery yields some nice caramel malt flavors and these shine through here, along with nutty baker's yeast, unripe peach, grape candy, pear, citrus rind, and toffee brittle. The sweet malt flavors develop nicely as the beer warms up. Light bodied and creamy as the style designator would suggest, with a semi-wet finish that features more earthy/spicy hops and hints of toast. Robust flavors for a cream ale and starts to blur the boundary between this style and an amber ale. I like my session options less sweet than this but recommended nonetheless.
