3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with a foamy, mostly white head. Aroma is faint and has some malty, honey notes. Flavor is certainly creamy, a bit sweet, and has a flavor of honey mixed with an artificial sweetener. Interesting if not a bit odd.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 Bottle... Clear, copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Rich, malty aroma of IBC cream soda with a hint of spice and toffee. Well-balanced flavor. Tastes a bit like IBC cream soda without any cloying sweetness... bigtime vanilla in both the nose and flavor. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Malty, then lightly bitter finish. Rich, but refreshing. Iím a fan.

Bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium and clear copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, nuts, and light vanilla. Thinner body. Hard one to figure out.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cream ale with some attitude, a definite fruitiness, though the finish is a bit odd. Sweetish with creamy orangey colour and good foamy ice cream head.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can. I had no idea going in what kind of beer this was, but I assumed it was a cream ale judging by "cervesa crema". Hazy orange color, minimal head, mild lacing. What is this aroma? Raisin? ... Totally raisin. Dead on raisin. Sounds weird, but I actually like it. Some sweet taste. Very interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour. Lots of vanilla and a bit of soft malt character as well. Fairly sweet up front, but there is a touch of decent dryness though on the finish as well. Okay - but not great. Soda-ish.
