BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Narragansett Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States

Style: Cream Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
‘Gansett Cream is made with quality ingredients like 2-row pale, Munich, Vienna, and Cara-malt for a creamy head! We used Columbus hops for bittering and a touch of Willamette hops for a slight hop aroma. Bright gold in color and brilliant in clarity, this session ale delivers an extra pop of hop bitterness found only in cream ales of the early 1900′s.

Poured into a shaker pint glass and I don't usually review out of this piece of glassware, but somehow and maybe to me, I feel like the shaker pint glass may not get as much love as it used to, however, I advocate for this piece of glassware for this style, but that is another topic.
The appearance was a nice golden yellow color with a nice transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a fair pace. Just a cap of a little white foamy head. Barely any lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of sweet corn, grassy hops and biscuit.
The flavor leaned towards the sweet side running through all of the prior mentioned aromas. Biscuity to grassy aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was sweet, smooth and creamy having a superb crushability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Finish was semi-creamy.
Overall, a fine cream ale showing it's ability to be as complex as it can be for the style while taking an ale yeast and lagering it. I prefer this beer this time of year.

Great creamy feel that they were going for. Unfortunately they forgot the rest in the process.

Pours a thin yellow with a little bit of fizz. The scent is sweet with malt and almost no hop scents coming through. The taste and mouthfeel were interesting with a thicker style cream ale that had a very mellow flavor. Easy drinking with a lot of substance to it made for an enjoyable evening with this beer.
