I was looking through my files and found this review that I started during the heart of both busy season and steelhead season. We were staying on the Kilchis River in Tilamook, Oregon at the time and it was wet and chilly and we were having a hard time catching steelhead.
We managed to land a few and I managed to drink a bunch of the Kiwanda Cream Ale. Reading the review now, I could definitely put back a bunch of these in the Keys!
Appearance: Looks like Budweiser. Clear gold/yellow, not much head on my pour, a fair amount of bubbles in the glass.
Smell: A very fresh smell with slight hop/floral undertones. Slightly sweet.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Not as creamy as I was expecting. Very crisp, with smooth malts. Light and bubbly.
Overall: Real easy drinking. Tastes and feels more like a lager than a cream ale, but boy I could put away a bunch of these on a hot day.Stats:
Gravity: 12.2 Degrees Plato
