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.

473 ml can shared by my brother. Deep ruby amber with no head. Grainy, corn, deep Munich malt, kinda sweet, a little resinous, spicy hops. Medium body, medium carbonation, fairly creamy. Quite rich maltiness, Munich, caramel, sweet, grainy, spicy hop character; basically dry with firm bitterness and a spicy, richly malty finish.

Can from the LCBO, as on the lookout for a decent ale that is smooth and not over hoppy or bitter. Winner here for me, great colour, good taste, nice looking can. Smooth and creamy, a tad sweet but that OK , sometimes. Need to try this again (soon) kind of British, but maybe not. Nicely done, worth a try anyway

jksipa (416) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Can from the LCBO. Clear deep copper with a generous off white head that fades slowly. Nose is toffee, honey, grains with a touch of vanilla and some light fruit. Mild sweet toffee start with a lightly bitter middle. Medium creamy mouth with light carbonation. Definitely creamy with a smooth finish but not a whole lot of character.

Spab (2563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear copper colour with average eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is grains, caramel, gentle toast and light fruitiness. Flavour is modestly toasty grains, gently sweet caramel and subtle fruity notes. Mouthfeel is indeed on the creamy side. Fine.

shaynsawchuk (552) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
473 mL can. Pours reddish amber with an off white cap that laces nice. Toffee maltiness, earthy, citric hop tones, biscuit and a hint of nuttiness. Somewhat sweet, but balanced by moderate hopping. Finishes round. Smooth and sessionable with moderate body and carbonation. Very clean. Not bad at all.

473ml can from the lcbo. Flabby amber ale with fermentation and packaging issues being brewed at one of ontarios worst breweries for a brewery that doesn’t exist outside of marketing. Have at it.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2334) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2014
I bought this at the LCBO as it had a great looking sky blue can and served it in a footed pilsner glass. It poured a clear light amber color with a light beige head. The aroma was light caramel + cocoa malty aroma. It is a touch bready with some savory vanilla. It is smooth with a creamy mouthfeel. The taste has nice bready caramel malts and is a touch tangy with light tannic + vanilla notes. Nice.

Cream ale is starting to be my favorite kind of beer. Really pleasant surprise in this beer. It has beautiful amber color. Its texture actually is creamy a bit, and it has pleasant balance of sweetness and hops, not overwhelming the taste while masking the alcohol. Smooth aftertaste with hits of caramel. While carbonation of this beer is really low, it kind of suites it giving it easy drinking smoothness and going well with its creamy texture. Only knock i got on this beer is its brownish head that disappears almost immediately.

Darkish amber pour with a tiny off white head that dissipates immediately. Malty aroma, caramel, some hops. Taste is mostly caramel up front some fruit flavors, bit of hops at the end, some bitterness and spiciness. Medium body, light to soft carbonation, some creaminess in the body.
