How to get your jolt of morning java with a lighter beer you ask? Well, Sixpoint’s C.R.E.A.M. is a clean, blonde beer with a heavy dose of coffee. It’ll open up your nostrils with an above-average dusty, earthy coffee note with hints of bell pepper. In the background is a light, grainy, corny note, but the beer is otherwise clean with no esters. It’s a bit hazier than expected but the rocky, everlasting ivory head that sits on top of the amber beer makes up for its clarity.

The flavor is intriguing with a biscuity, honey, and slightly corn-like malt backbone that's reminiscent of tortilla chips. However, the strong earthy coffee with hints of vanilla dominates overall and lingers well into the aftertaste after a dry, dusty finish. It’s a balanced beer overall with no esters to detract.  C.R.E.A.M. is highly quaffable with a medium-light body, medium-plus carbonation, subtle creaminess, and no astringency from the coffee addition.

If you’re bored with the same old coffee stouts, porters, etc. then look to Sixpoint’s C.R.E.A.M. It’s a refreshing take on the style that is sure to please many a light beer and coffee drinkers' palates.
