Mill Street Brewery Caribou Cream Ale – Cream Ale at 5% ABV

Mill Street Brewery Caribou Cream Ale Cream Ale at 5% ABV (C$8.00 at Mill Street Brew Pub St. John’s, 945 ml, bottle date 28-Jul-2016, acquired 28-Jul-2016, reviewed 29-Jul-2016)

Appearance: clear pale gold with one fat finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grass, honey, biscuity pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate-soft carbonation, crisp smooth finish. (3/5)

Not bad, actually! I’m not generally a huge fan of Cream Ales, but this is decently done – clean grassy hops, with just a hint more sweetness and subtle creaminess in the mouthfeel to distinguish from a Pale Lager or Pilsner. And I have to say, I’m a huge fan of being able to do growler fills of locally brewed beer. That alone would dispose me kindly towards this, but the fact is, it’s a not bad brew in its own right. (13/20)
