What You Need to Know
This quaffable Cream Ale features cracker and corn malt paired with spicy hops. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
The cream ale pours a crystal-clear gold with nearly an inch-thick cap of fizzy white foam that draws back rather quickly. No lace left on the glass. A steady stream of bubbles rises in the glass, indicative of its ample carbonation.
The aroma is predominantly malty and imparts a scent of cereal grain. There’s also a hint of spicy hops that appear in the background.
The palate follows the nose with a malty flavor of corn that’s balanced by a mild bitterness from the spicy hops.
The feel of this ale is a little slick with its medium-light body and moderate carbonation. The tasting finishes with a somewhat dry crispness.
Gulfstream Cream has an approachable taste. It’s refreshing, easy to drink, and represents the style well. If you’re looking for a light lawnmower beer, give this one a try.
