Very Good
Notes: A simple pale ale brewed with our own local barley from Snow Hill and cold brewed coffee produced on site at Burley Oak. This Ale pours an attractive golden hue and has a pleasant residual sweetness.

A, erm, cream ale brewed with coffee.

Pours very dark for the style, a thick, hazy orange with a small head.

Smells of straight, sweet coffee (so I guess coffee with aromatically palpable sugar in it). Little in the malt complicates the coffee beyond cutting a bit into its bitterness. It's simple, but good.

Tastes like coffee up front, and then a super sweet and nearly esterless cream ale finish. VERY smooth. Wonderful combo, really, but I'd kinda like to just try the cream ale without the coffee.

16 ounce can poured into a tumbler style pint glass.
Canned 4/28/20

It pours murky pale gold and is topped with a little more than a finger of dense cream-white foam that fades to just a ring. The nose is subdued, mostly light roast coffee and vanilla cream. It drinks malt forward and medium sweet, light roast coffee, vanilla, cream soda, no corn/DMS flavor. The sweet spice hop flavor is minimal and bitterness is very light rising just a bit for a short, mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and creamy with medium carbonation adding a slight crispness to the finish.

So far I'm not a big fan of Cream Ales but I liked this one. It is flavorful and easy drinking but is to the heavy side of the style.

Nitro into a pint glass at Burley Oak. Creamy white head atop a pale yellow/orange body. Aromas of coffee, lactose and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is more mild on the coffee than I'd like, but the creamy mouthfeel does this beer wonders. A hint of oats and lactose. Nice beer.
