2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too sweet and not hoppy. Very disappointing given the color and great looking pour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fluffy head dies back leaving spotty lacing atop a shiny penny brew.
I hate saying it.. there is not much aroma.. maybe a little toastiness that is overwhelmed by the vanilla.
Flavor is a sweet maltiness that I don’t really appreciate .. an artificial vanilla component is overpowering on my palate... reminds me of an oversweet grocery store birthday cake.
Palate is the best thing going by a long shot in my mind.. very smooth and velvety.. Carbonation is very small bubble silkiness..
Not my cup of tea at all... and really the vanilla should be in a cup of tea. I don’t ever see the brew being refreshing in summer on any other time of year... first drain pour in recent memory.

Very good summer ale. I see now that it’s categorized as a cream ale, and that’s probably what made it so good--that creamy hint that makes it stand out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Grub. Strawberry, ice cream, fruity. Not sure what they’re going for here. It’s alright though, but maybe a bit too sweet. Seems very different from the deScription above.

(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 28 Aug 2015) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of caramel, red fruit, toffee and the soft drink Portello. Malty, spicy taste with caramel, toffee, toast and a fairly sweet finish with a gentle spicy bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Spicy and sweet, but quite tasty. Quite nice.
