Rules, schmules. Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red; or an overgrown American wheat taking Celtic harp lessons; or a Kölsch gone rogue and on the run from the Reinheitsgebot ... pigeonhole it if you must, but this creamy-textured, straw-gold ale begs to be judged on its own merits. Capped with a dense meringue of nose-dotting foam, the pint offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops. A full body with thick mouthfeel, more buttered toast and fruity hops give way to a finish evenly split between malty and bitter. Flaked barley and oat malt (wheat DME for the extract version) build density and a viscous texture with supporting grain flavors. Serve at cellar temperature any time of year; if you really want to go nuts, keg it and dispense with beer gas through a stout faucet!

5.0 / 5.012 ReviewsFantastic!It's creamy oaty goodness. As someone else described, it's like a cream stout on steroids. Dangerously drinkable.June 10, 2015BonusDude this is awesome. Great taste - great color. Easy to make. Buying again.May 30, 2011Great Spring time beer!I brewed this on March 1st and after being kegged and carbonating for 9 days, it's a very nice beer! Only thing I changed was that I used a half oz of the bitter hops to cut down the IBU's. I think this is a beer that the masses will like. Not bitter, yet has some a nice fruity aroma that follows through in the taste. Clean, crisp and goes great with a warm spring/summer day. Very happy with the way it turned out!April 10, 2013A big crowd pleaser...I first brewed this for a party at work. I needed something that wouldn't turn the lite beer crowd off, but would also appeal to craft beer fans. It was a home run with both crowds. I just bought the AG kit again, but i'm keeping this batch all to myself.January 6, 2014Great carbonation, crisp dry finish.I was amazed at the carbonation of this crisp finishing ale upon opening the first bottle two weeks after bottle conditioning. Has a nice full head and crisp clean mouth feel, and the finish is dry and delightful. I will brew this again and again.April 4, 2014Great StuffIt took quite awhile for this beer to mature. I didn't think I'd like it at first. After a few months now it is just delicious. If you like a full flavored pale beer this is one of the best.January 3, 2013OoooÉ.it's a blondeNice. I bought the AG kit and forgot that I didn't order the yeast, so 1098 British Ale was the choice. I did as others and tossed the rest of the bittering hops in @ 60 and now I wish I hadn't. Awesome beer, a tad hoppyÉbeautiful color. Will certainly do this one again and get the right yeast next time. O, and I dry hopped an oz of Cascade after a cpl of weeks. Smells great!June 4, 2012Wait for it.... Wait for it.... Awesomeness!Outstanding! The concept of putting it on my Stout tap is simply revolutionary.August 26, 2011Best all around ale so far!Perfect balance of flavor and great hops. Best pouring beer I have ever made. Cleared up nicely in secondary, could drink this one straight from the bottle but you would miss the smooth, full head. Anyone who likes hops should give this beer a try.January 19, 2012Highly recommend brewing this one.This beer reminded me of a good cream ale on steroids.The flaked barley gives it a very smooth mouthfeel.I really enjoyed this beer and will deffinately do it again.Very popular with all who have tried it at my house.March 15, 2011
