Not many Cream Ales on the local retail shelves these days other than the omnipresent green cans from Genesee. Thus, I was very pleased to obtain a 16 oz.can of Kickflip in a recent trade. Quite mild and not as creamy as I anticipated. The 5.5% ABV helps in giving it good body without dominating in the taste. Good but not excessive malt presence. Since BB doesn't distribute in my area I don't know whether this is a seasonal or year-round product but I think it fits into most any time of the year and I'll be happy to purchase a 4- or 6-pack it if available when I visit Maine in the near future.

16 oz. can dated 9/19/18 purchased at brewery. Poured into Guinness glass.

L: 3F big foamy head, leaves spotty white lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a pretty clear light straw.

S: Yeast and malt, not quite lager-like, but grainy.

T: Creamy (yeah, I know), malty. A veritable field of grains. Pretty neutral finish.

F: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Quite drinkable. Good balance and construction.

O: Only a few reviews, but I feel you guys are giving this too hard of a time or don't care for the style. This is a very decent cream ale.
