Farmer Ted’s Farmhouse Cream Ale


Farmer Ted’s Farmhouse Cream Ale aims to replicate an early American ale from the Appalachian region, home of North Carolina’s Catawba Valley Brewing Company. To that end it’s a cream ale based on wheat and corn, but with a pleasantly heavy body that you don’t tend to find in beers with such a light flavor profile. The nose is toasty malted grain, and the middle is heavily wheat, with some sweetness from the corn. The finish is mildly sweet as well with a bit of chewy breadiness. This is a nice clean ale, and definitely one to try for someone who doesn’t care for bitterness. It isn’t a light as a summer thirst-quencher, but it’s the next best thing.

I give it a 4.2 out of 5.
