1064. Haver Ale

Jadyn and I went to the Tavern in Central Square for some reason on the 24th of July. I had a couple of these while there.

Haver Ale pours a slightly-hazed copper color. It's topped by a sudsy, off-white head that fades to a thin film. The aroma is mild, but what's there is malty. There are notes of toffee and caramel. There's also a mild hop aroma.

This beer is pretty light on flavor when it first hits the palate, but a nice mix of toasty, bready, caramel and toffee malts come through in the center. There's a mild hop bitterness in the finish. This beer is smooth and medium-bodied.

Ah, Cream Ale, a style that doesn't excite, doesn't impress, but somehow still satisfies. That's how I felt about this beer, and generally it's how I feel about the style.
