Poured into a pint glass at kickbacks
Reviewed from notes

A-Pours ultra gold. Oddly thiny fizzy head for a cream ale with not much lace or bubbles.

S-very very light aroma a little sweetness and some very faint indistinguishable hops.

T-A mild amount of sweetness and a splash of citrus and no creaminess. Weak flavors all around and a funky odd aftertaste that lingers.

M-Oddly the mouthfeel saves this beer for the most part. Its almost what it should be for the style maybe a little on the fizzy side.

D-Drinkability of this beer is as high as it is light. I did not really care for its flavors that much but if you did this would be a very drinkable beer for you. I did try the Dukes brown ale after this and enjoyed it much better but didnt have the time to review it. In the future however I will pass on this one. (826 characters)

Killer Whale Cream Ale by Bold City Brewery Jacksonville Fl. 5.5% alcohol.

A- Pours a calm yellowish orange fluid that produces a small white head leaving light if any lacing.

S- Slight citrusy scent and mild malts are in the nose.

T-M- Taste is a small bite of citrusy hops and mild malty backbone. Mouthfeel is smooth but lacking on the creamy side but all and all drinkable.

O- Drinkable as hell if at the right price. (425 characters)

Bold City Cream Ale
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my DFH Signature glass
A: Pours a cloudy, straw colored yellow with no head.
S: Like a generic lager with some lemon and a little funkiness.
T: Bland, tastes like a cheap lager i.e. Budweiser; I thought this was supposed to be a cream ale, where’s the ale? Where’s the cream? Maybe some slight lemon flavor.
M: Same, Generic and slightly skunky despite only buying this two weeks ago.
O: Not impressed, better than PBR that’s about it. C (495 characters)

This is a light ale brewed in Jacksonville Florida. It is a easy beer to drink, and if you want something simple to enjoy while talking with friends. It is far better than any of the corp light beers, but dont expect a IPA here either.

A- light golden colour, small head about the size of a finger.

S- bread, roasty

T- just like the smell, a very bready taste, sweet

M- light, thin, smooth

D- very drinkable, little aftertaste. (434 characters)

Well it fits the style its a ale like bud, decent but nothing great in fact most of Brain beers with the exception of the IPA and white wheat ale, taste all about the same good but bland. I mean its beer, it gives you a buzz and its local fresh and cheap, if it was not Cheap I would not buy it to be honest. Seems its too 7 b like to me, the guy needs to break out and do something different.

A: clear yellow , no yeast, its filtered, little head when poured into a pint glass maybe 1/2 inch tops

S: some bread, very very faint hops

T: crisp, clean, bland, some what pilsner like, BMC like, not my favorite, some light bread, no hops

M: lite body, kind of watery

D: it goes down ok, but has a twang after taste, I did not think it was that great its decent but I did not want another. (791 characters)

Bold City Brewery "Killer Whale Cream Ale"
12 oz. can, coded "344 14 14:35"
$2.29 @ Total Wine @ More #901, Tampa, FL (uggh, I could've bought it at Winn Dixie in Jacksonville for $1.66)

Killer Whale Cream Ale pours a hazy (not to style) deep gold body beneath a short-lived head of bright white that drops to just a thin collar and leaves little lacing behind.

The aroma is clean with the exception of a light touch of sulphur and some yeastiness, and expresses a pleasant combination of grainy malt and apple-like fruitiness.

In the mouth it's light and crisp. A touch more carbonation might give it a little zip.

The flavor delivers the malt promised in the nose, with a wider, fuller character. It remains grainy in a good way, and backed by a minimal amount of hop flavor it becomes a bit grassy. It's only lightly sweet, and a limited, restrained bitterness balances it. The gentle fruitiness gives it life, and it's really quite pleasant and easy to drink, finishing dry with some residual grainy malt and a hint of grassy and leafy hops.

Although it doesn't quite match the specifications for a mainstream "cream ale" (mainly clarity, some aromatics), it's quite a nice beer in its own right (and I don't know any craft brew drinkers who are too into clarity). Quaffable might be a good word to use to describe it! (1,328 characters)

Was in JAX fro a Monday evening Football game and stayed at the Hyatt that had the Killer Whale Cream Ale on tap. The beer is a light ale brewed and is very easy to drink, The beer poured a light clear golden with thin white head. The smell included grain and barley. The taste was similar to the smell a very bready taste with slight hints of sweetness. The mouthfeel was light in body but smooth with mild carbonation. Overall is was a decent cream ale and very drinkable. (474 characters)

Good beer. Tasty. Smooth, and absolutely no hoppy taste. Could use a higher ABV, but hey...it's pretty decent. (110 characters)
