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.

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

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.

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.

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.

3.58/5  rDev +13.7%

A: Straw yellow, no carbonation in the body, but the head is the largest I have ever seen on any beer, including many Belgians. With no agitation, the bottle overflowed with foam on opening, filled up a half pint glass with seven fingers of foam, then a full pint glass with 7 fingers of foam. Still beer in the bottle, and more foam is oozing out! Foam is off white and fluffy with large and small bubbles.

S: Phenols, some belgian style yeastiness, fruitiness, some german pilsener hops. Seems like a pilsener crossed with a Belgian pale, but much lighter.

T: Very light, the Belgian yeastiness comes through, as well as the pilsener hops, some hard water.

M: Light watery body, low carbonation.

O: Love the bottle, carried this one thousands of miles to China where I’m enjoying it near the end of summer. Light and refreshing, would pair with lots of foods, especially pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers, summer fare.

Bold City Killer Whale Cream Ale
12oz bottle into a pilsner glass

A: Pours a crystal clear, straw yellow with just under a fingers width of bright white head which dissipates down fairly quickly to only a thin outer ring. Looks like a budweiser, except slightly darker. Leaves no lacing.

S: Toasted white bread. Thats about all I get.

T: Lots of grain, some adjunct type flavors. A touch of spice. Not awful, in fact, better than I expected, but still not very good.

M/D: Heavy carbonation, medium bodied, drinkability is good, but for such a light beer it better be.

O: A decent example of a pretty dismal style. I dont really understand the concept of craft beer and adjunct ingredients. A craft brewery brewing a cream ale is like a woman getting a breast reduction, it just doesn't make sense and quite frankly should be illegal. Overall, not terrible, but I would not ever purchase this.
