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

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.

Arrives clear and pale yellow with white head that drops fairly fast but leaves a smattering of lace.
Smell is malt, tortilla chips and not much else.
Taste is weak like the nose with malt and tortilla chips, some yeast and faint hops.
Light body though heavier than a lager. Lightish effervescence. Not bad but nothing to recommend it either.
Serving type: on-tap
