Notes / Commercial Description:
Sitting around the kitchen table during our start-up days, the need for a sessionable beer became clear. Our first intern actually came up with the idea to brew a cream ale, so we started designing the recipe. As with all Castle Danger beers, we start with a flavor profile, then expand upon it to create something unique. Castle Cream is our version of a cream ale. Deep gold in color, it has a soft malty aroma, slightly sweet creamy texture with a balanced bitterness, while finishing smooth and clean.

Simp!y looks drinkable. Dark copper cloudy with retained fluffy head. A little rock salt and a moustache, and you will be in libation heaven, circa 1910.

A delicious brew for a summer day. This is one I like to let warm up, as the biscuit flavors really shine through - the finish is a delicious buttery biscuit and pleasing to the palate.

This is a decent cream ale. Full malt flavor, hints of adjunct and light caramel for fullness. Decent summer beer worthy of taking to the lake.

A delicious cream ale. Mild caramel and biscuit. Subtle. Highly quaffable (spelling? ). Minimal alcohol so you can go all day.

No, it's not a hoppy IPA, which is what we all think we want. But there are other flavors in the world! This is one of them. Drink it!
