ThirstyGirl Thursday, Bring Back The Can Weekend with Flagship Cream Ale

thirstyGirl Thursday Flagship Cream Ale

It’s been a week from hell, and job is well a job, but it’s Thursday, more reason to be thirsty. This thirstyGirl is ready for something new, and that new is, ’Bring back the can weekend’. My roommate opened up his latest Original Craft Beer Club selection, and inside was a can of golden-colored cream ale from Rhode Island.

FLAGSHIP - Our golden-colored cream ale, brewed in a similar manner to the crisp lagers of continental Europe, offers great balance between malty sweetness and noble hop bitterness. This gold-medal winning cream ale is the perfect session beer for any occasion. Available on draft and in 12-ounce cans.

Style: Cream Ale, Gold Medal winner of 16th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition

Alcohol: 4.9%

Aroma: The beer pours a honey-golden color, minimal head, and the aroma is very malty and nutty.

Taste: The taste is extremely mild mixed with high carbonation. Sadly, the taste is a little too easy on the palatte to be worth the time. There’s a bitterness that lingers, I think it comes from the sweeter cream.

Price: N/A

Overall: There’s something to say about small micro breweries and the beer they brew. If you love beer, joining a club can really get you out of your comfort zone. Though I didn’t love this beer, a 'can', can make a huge difference. Maui Brewing Company has some of the most unique beer's in the business, and they are all found in cans. It maintains the integrity of the beer.

So, this beer might not be the 'prince in shinning armor,' but it’s always worth a try. My taste buds may not be the same as yours. And hey, maybe I'll bring something new on your radar.

Paring: Blackened white fish with cajun style seasonings on a corn tortilla, topped with thinly sliced red radishes, cilantro and fresh cabbage. Side of fried pickles with spicy sour cream dip.
