COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t let this Cream Ale fool you. This pre-prohibition Cream Ale is a smooth full flavored Ale that will appeal to your casual craft beer drinker and to craft beer lovers. At 5.9%, this sessionable beer can carry a bit more bitterness than your typical lawnmower cream ale. The added wheat malt gives it the creamy body and wonderful lacing to the last drop. With 4 malts and a blend of 4 hops, including Sarachi Ace and Bravo, this Cream Ale is really how Cream Ale used to be. That’s how we roll! Expect the un-expected from Bell City Brewing.

No doubt that this is a quality beer. Unfortunately the hops were too overwhelming. I should have paid more attention. Cream Ale is its own style, and hops in this much quantity are reserved for IPA’s. Glad I tried it. Will not buy again. MB The Beer Bearon

Tranquillity (1793) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2016
Can. Brown body, huge brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, rye bread. The taste is strong and slightly smoky, with a nice citrus kick at the end. Creamy.

Metalchopz (3055) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
Second Bell City brew review of the night. Pours a clean rich amber colour with a creamy beige head, good retention and creamy lacing. Fruity aromas with nice malts. Eventually, lots of butterscotch come out. Mild caramel flavours with some decent light hops to balance things. Thankfully not as rich as their Lenoir Belgian Ale. Pretty drinkable actually.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2016
Can from LCBO. C0316 - canned March 2016? Pours clear dark amber, almost coppery, with a fine light beige head. The aroma is rather nice: nutty and caramelly, grainy, plus stone fruits and toffee, herbal and flowery hops. Tastes toffee and caramelly sweet with earthy, leafy, herbal bitterness. Very dry finish to go with that, almost like black tea. Thin but crisp carbonation, mediumish body. Pretty unusual for a Cream Ale - as far as my experience with the style thus far is concerned. I quite like it.

Listigovers (875) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Amber slight haze. Toffee smell, bread. Tastes very bready, slight sweet and creamy palate, pleasing bitterness in finish, nice after raking leaves.

AleRider78 (631) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Pours a good size frothy off-white head and has a clear amber appearance. Lacing is ok. Aromas of light toasty malts, hints of earthy and herbal hops. Flavours of roasted malts, caramel, a bit sweet. Mouthfeel is a little bit dry. Has a bit of a rusty like finish. Average carbonation. Medium retention. Fairly average cream ale.

Canmoore (405) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours a rich amber, with a large foamy head. Aroma has notes of toasted malt, caramel, vanilla, toffee, and honey. Tasting notes include fiery malts, toffee, fruity esters, hoppy finish with a CO2 bite. Nice brew!

Dark amber in colour with a thick beige head. I get hints of caramel and dates with a creamy mouth feel. Decent first try from Bell City.

Can - Light caramel malts. Clear Amber with a decent beige head. Malty sweet grains with some caramel. Dark for the style but decent.

Strangebrewer (1149) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
can. Poured clear dark amber with a creamy tan head. Rich malty aroma is so inviting. Medium body with soft carbonation, almost buttery mouthfeel with a bite at the end. Sweet caramel malt, slightly oaky, has an earthy raw grainy feel. peppery hop finish. Really nice savory brew.
