If you are tied to lagers, this ale may be for you. Itís not malty and not too hoppy. Very light and refreshing.

Killer Whale has a thick, creamy, white head, a mostly clear, yellow appearance, lots of fine, powdery sediment, and rather heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malts, with flaked maize, in the background. Taste is of sweet malt, low-level, mellow hop bitterness, and white corn, possibly. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Killer Whale finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

A yeasty aroma pours a pale clear gold color with a short lasting head. A watery body with a light cream soda taste. No real finish.

Iíve had some bad cream ales and some fairly good ones. This falls somewhere in the middle. Found it to be sort of bland, and almost like a Kolsch as far as malt goes. Has some mild flavor. Balanced ok. I was hoping that this could be a new local summer beer for me, but not quite good enough to get a 6 pack of after sampling a single.

Zero smell... appearance is light...taste is stronger than first thoughts lead on, but straightforward and mostly watery...smooth and no personality...in st. Augustine with john, Andy, Ashley

Can: Corn nose. Clear golden, thick sticky head. Mild corn and grass. Light body, easy carbonation. True to style, not bad.

15th May 2016. 12oz can in California, poured into a La Chouffe tulip. Hazy lemon, light orange body, no head worthy of the name. Strange brew all round, no aroma and very little flavour, salty feel throughout with a dry finish and aftertaste (if there had been a taste). Not too sure what the brewers are trying to achieve here to be honest. Gets me my first ever Florida rate, thanks Greg, hope my next beer from this State is better though.

Tap. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is rather light, just a bit of pale bready malt and a bit of corn maybe. The flavor is rather bland and light, a very minimal hoppiness that emerges a bit on the late finish. Itís mostly husky and rough grain. Light bodied and fizzy with a lingering grainy finish. Meh, I could pass on this one on a second go-around.

Iím a sucker for a cream ale as I find the style easy to brew, but difficult to master. Bold Cityís entry is decent, but not in the top tier of cream ales. Pours hazy deep gold capped with a fizzy, quickly receding head. Mild nose with pale malt crackeryness and a some light citrus. Tastes much the same. Lacks body and is a little less crisp in the finish than Iíd prefer.
