Tap at peppercorns

Creamy 1 finger head fades semi quickly with no real lacing, golden honey what colored semi clear beer.

Nose a light musty toasty straw and wheat like, light crisp lager, light sweetness, very light nose.

Taste Is mild and very crisp, a nice lager flavor, bit toasty malts, bit creamy but not that much, light straw and wheat, golden malts, light sweetness and touch of lager yeast fruit. Faintest hint of grassy hops. Finishes a bit drier, slight bitterness, crisp with a touch of sticky feel.

Mouth is lighter but crisp and decent carb.

Drink is awesome, smooth and very crisp, no booze, very sessionable. If anything this could even use a slight noble hop addition. Very drinkable, I could see sitting out On the porch in summer pounding this.

This completely caught me off gaurd on my trip to Peppercorns. A very pleasant surprise. This cream ale is 5.5% and a mere 18 IBU. An American style lager that these guys fermented with their ale yeast. According to the blurb on this, the guys at Wormtown used flaked maize and rice syrup as well.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a wonderful crystal clear golden straw hue. Atop it sits a one finger head that fades at a normal rate to leave a thin wispy cloud and nice halo.

S - Light sweetness is apparent from the malts. Most of the aromas here are very faint and subtle, though there is a rather nice yeast aromas too. No hop aroma here.

T - Nice sweet malty flavours start off but give way to a nice super light yeasty and presumably corn finish. The flavours mingle nicely, blending into a solid flavor profile with the sweet malts and corn notes. Very clean.

M - Low carbonation but nicely crisp and refreshing. This doesnt have a big, bold body but that doesnt mean this is a watery or thin feeling beer. Quite nice for the style.

D - This stuff is dangerous. Very dangerous. I'm talking drinking games with crazy irresponsible college students dangerous. At 5.5% this pint could be taken down in one hefty gulp. Heck, a growler of this stuff would disappear nearly instantaneously. Nice cream ale profile, not thin but refreshing. Makes a superb session beer.
