(En fût à la source): Les derniers médiocres "rating" datant de 2012 ne rendent clairement pas justice à ce liquide du 12 octobre 2016. Les céréales sont collantes et très développées, la texture est svelte et veloutée, la présence verte est moelleuse et la finale n’est pas moche du tout. Très réussi.

This is the only beer review I’m going to be able to pull off from the Great California Excursion of December 2011. I grabbed a pitcher of the Cardiff Cream at Pizza Port Solana Beach because I had to get a beer that looked enough like a standard pale lager for the GF to enjoy. It’s still a solid option--nothing too fancy, rather conservative, but finely-crafted just the same. The Cardiff Cream has enough heartiness and flavor, tending more towards the sweet than the bitter, to separate it from some more boring golden ale or lager varieties. And, this beer reminds me more of, say, a Boddington’s in appearance and mouth-feel than other goldens/blondes I’ve tasted. Again, I wasn’t blown away by the Cardiff Cream (as I was by the Cowabunga Cream Stout), but it has a lot of appeal for a wide range of palates.

Better than I expected from this style. Flavor is sweet and body is dry. Not too bad as a palate cleanser between pints of Hop 15. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2008
On-tap at PPSB. Pours pale yellow, clearish. Thin, crisp, white head that leaves a good amount of lace. Smells light and grainy, wheaty with some light earthy hops. Tastes light and grainy sweet, malty, negligible hop flavor. Smooth, thin to medium body. Subdued moderate carbonation. Basically this beer is like running a light lager through a beer engine. Good...

Good, for what it's supposed to be. Very clear and beautiful light golden color, almost straw. I always think of cream ales as what Bud and Coors should have been. Nice interesting finish with a slight bready smack. Almost no hops and almost no flavor whatsoever. Not over carbonated, though very sparkly. Not what I like to drink but good for style. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A light bodied cream ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter and mild, yet there is a hop bite to this beer. Light and refreshing, crisp and clean. A step above a typical lawn mover beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Golden clear color. No head, this beer reminds me of my Coors light days! Oh my! Sweet sour taste across your tongue. paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - AUG 30, 2008
