Raven Cream Ale – R&B Brewing (R and B Brewing)

From Vancouver BC’s R&B Brewing comes the “Raven Cream Ale”.  The beer pours a brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, fruit and a sweet note.  The flavour is of roasted malts, caramel, toffee, mild coffee, nutty and a mild fruit note also.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.8% with an IBU of 18. Some people may squabble with this beer being a cream ale because of the dark colour but who cares as it is a great tasting beer!
