A Note on This Beer
The last time I rolled through Portland’s famous Blue Star Donuts, I inhaled my donut before I even left the parking lot.
So, the moment I discovered Little Beast Brewing’s latest release — The O.G. Cream Ale — my taste buds went berserk. These Oregon Beer Award winners drew inspiration from one of Blue Star’s most popular pastries, the Orxata Glazed Donut!
To craft it, Little Beast’s craft geniuses created a base beer using French pale malt, biscuit malt, and toasted rice flakes to mimic the fluffy treat’s brioche base.
After adding cinnamon to the mash and the boil, these brewers created their own decadently-thick Oxata glaze using rice flour, vanilla, and even more cinnamon, and injected it straight into the finished beer!
Pour it into a glass, and wafts of creamy vanilla and freshly baked biscuits tickle the nose. Take a sip, and sumptuous swells of toasted bread, burnt sugar, and sweet cinnamon waltz along the taste buds.
It was tough NOT to whip through my entire stash in one sitting. So, if you’ve got an insatiable hankering for expertly-made donuts, I recommend grabbing more than one can!
