PUMPHOUSE CADIAN CREAM ALE

Posted in Ales, Cream Ale, Reviews with tags , , , , , , , on October 24, 2011 by calgarybeerdrinkers

Pumphouse Brewery Ltd., Moncton, New Brunswick 

  • 5%ABV
  • An unfortunately unappealing appearance from the pour, off yellow with a really weak head that hardly lasts.
  • Smells like garden fresh vegetables, squash and tomatoes especially, cucumber.  Reminds us all of V8 vegetable cocktail.
  • This beer is very dry, and the vegetable characteristics persist, making for an unpleasant beer.
  • Through research we have discovered that a vegetable taste in beer can indicate that a beer that has imperfections or has gone bad.  Since this beer was flown to us from Moncton there is a possibility it may have been affected by cabin pressure.  I look forward to trying this beer properly.
