Pelican "Kiwanda Cream Ale"
Pelican Pub & Brewery - Pacific City, Oregon USA
Cream Ale (ABV 5.4%) (IBU 25)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light puddled film and medium collar and had good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a lightly sweet grain malt, floral hops and a doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a mild fruity ester.

The taste was rather malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a pronounced grainy feel from the start, becoming lightly hoppy with a slight adjunct presence and a light fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow and had a light spicy sweetness at the very end.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a good refreshing brew with an unpretentious taste and a great drinkability...
