Crow Peak Canyon Cream Ale

This 5.0% ABV cream ale is from the Crow Peak Brewing Company of Spearfish, South Dakota, in the Black Hills area. It uses local honey. 

The beer pours a very pale and washed out golden yellow, the color of champagne. There is a short and short-lived white head. The aroma is sweet grain, a touch of pears, and a whiff of straw. The taste is less sweet than the aroma, grain, straw, with a light grassy bitterness on the end and the pear coming on in the aftertaste. The beer drinks easy, but with a smooth, somewhat creamy mouthfeel. There is moderate carbonation. An easy drinker, good as a gateway beer, or for those times when a lighter easy drinker is called for.
