BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
neshaminycreekbrewing.com

Style: American Cream Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Often called your typical American lawnmower beer, cream ales are not unlike their American light lager cousin. Brewed with American 2 & 6 Row Barley, Flaked Maize, a touch of Munich malt, and of course, sugar, Croydon Cream Ale is light, refreshing, and easy to drink. We also use American Cluster and Czech Saaz hops that give it a touch of hop bitterness and a hint of floral aromatics.

The head doesn't last here but the nose features a very pleasant sweet biscuit note and a touch of honey. The flavor is similar; sweet and light, with a clean finish. This is the liquid equivalent of white bread: plain but exquisite in in its simplicity. This is an easy drinking guzzler, just like cream ale is supposed to be.

Light orange gold color. About a medium light body with about medium carbonation.
Aroma is a pleasant mix of cereal, bread, a little grass, and some sweet malt .
Taste is similar to aroma, it has a crisp, very mild hop bitterness. Has that planet cereal /cracker taste. There is a very slight sugary, sweetness in the middle that stays through the finish and lingers awhile.
Overall it's a very safe choice for a summer afternoon beer. It doesn't go over the top in bitterness or sweetness but is very flavorful .

Um, just picked a 6 pack today and am at this moment enjoying one. I am not one who can pick flavors out and say it tastes like this or that. This beer tastes like what I wanted to drink tonight good refreshing and great tasting beer. I also bought their Lager and will sip it in a few moments. This cream ale is going to be a regular drink for me.

Refreshing cream ale. Only complaint is the finish gets a little too sweet as it warms

Mostly clear yellow color with a thin white head that leaves decent lacing.

Clean aroma with bready malts and classic Saaz hops. Similar taste, like a bready pilsner with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation.

Very clean and refreshing.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is clean grain, grass, cereal, and light sugar. Light bodied, slightly sweet, with high carbonation. Makes for a great sessionable cream ale. Could see this being a summer staple.

I saw this at the beer store behind the counter in a box labeled "past date, drain". I volunteered jokingly to take it home and dump it. Surprisingly this led to a free sixer for me!

I got it cold and the next day I tried it. For the style it was the best I ever had. I was impressed it was like super highlife! Refreshing, quenching and clean. This will have a definite locked in spot in my summer beer rotation!

Pretty lackluster and boring but was a better low abv option than comparable alcohol content macro offerings. Not by a whole lot though.

Had this on 2016-12-31 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz can.

A - Clear yellow-gold with a 1.5-finger white head and moderate lace.

S - Mild aromas of grain and sweet floral.

T - Lightly-toasted white bread, light dash of lemon, honey, grassy spice. A pleasant amount of bitterness in the finish; certainly more than something like a Yuengling Lager or a Budweiser but not as much as a German Pilsner.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Smoother and creamier than I expected.

O - Quite enjoyable after a long workout at the gym today. Even in winter, this is a good brew. I'll have it again.
