Civil Life Brewing Company Cream Ale
What the brewers say
Crisp, accessible, golden beer with low hop character and a clean finish.
What our panel thought
Lovely floral, herbal hop aroma; soft cracker, bready, light corn note. Good floral hop flavor with mild, balanced bitterness. Subdued malt. Light body, good carb. Leaves lingering bitterness in the dry finish to keep the drinker wanting more. Good drinkability and lovely aroma.
What our editors thought
Hamburger-bun, Hawaiian-roll sweet note, with a touch of orange blossom and faint sulphur in the nose. The malt is light with slight bitterness at best, for a clean, prototypically "beery" beer. Satisfying in its simplicity.
