Sixpoint C.R.E.A.M.

After the Santiam Bluegrass Stout, I tried the Sixpoint C.R.E.A.M., $4 for 10 oz ($6 for 20 oz). It's described as a cream ale with coffee. Brooklyn, NY. 7.2%.

The beer had an orange color, a strange spice smell, and maybe a slightly citrus taste.

Thinking about the taste, I concluded that it tasted like other cream ales I've had in the past. I'm not a fan of cream ales, but I gave it a try because I like beers with notes of coffee.

Ultimately, I neither liked nor disliked it.

After I drank about half of the beer, I began to pick up on the coffee flavor. It's a sour-tasting type of coffee.

I liked the beer better upon finishing it. 7:10PM PT

You started with cream in your coffee, now have coffee in your cream ale.
We took blonde beer, then calibrated it with roasty coffee and a touch of creamy sweetness. Start and end the day with craft brew. CREAM! It’s Mad Science.

The Story. That moment... you wake up, shake up, hop outta bed, damn that floor is cold! Need something HOT to get the juices flowing. Let’s brew. Grind it, mash it, steep it, pour it over. Watch the chaos, the alkaline swirl through the roasted, acidic elixir. It doesn’t take a pH.D: Drop the Acid, Drop the Base, Drop the Mic...

Lab Notes. A bright blonde ale calibrated with roasty coffee and a touch of sweetness. Last brewed January 2017.
