Peaches & Cream Ale – Fearless Brewing Company, 4.6% ABV, 1 pint, (Estacada, Oregon, USA)


  • Style: (flavoured – artificial peach) Fruit Beer
  • Taste: Artificial peach perfume thin body grainy barley malt lasting soft hop bitter
  • Where I got it : Bottle Jockey / Burnaby
  • How much: $3.55 (after 7.5% off) – 1 pint, February 2016
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no

Visual: Pours translucent pale light orange with a small dissipating head, a very thin hazy layer of retention, several singular micro streams scattered about.

Nose: fruity fuzzy peach candy, somewhat perfume-like (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp, subdued hops

Mid-palate: background artificial peach perfume, (lvl-4-sweetness), grainy barley malt, half-creamy/tingly mouthfeel,

Finish: lasting soft bitter hops, barley malt exhale, thin body finish.

Summary: Once I saw “ale with ARTIFICIAL flavor” on the side of the can, I immediately became skeptical. It is drinkable with a decent mouthfeel and hop profile, but is lacking in depth and genuine complexity – aka simple bodied. Average.
