12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass, rich copper color with a thin creamy head that dissipates quickly to a thin lacing. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavor is fruity, cereal grains, honey and spicy.Very creamy texture, would recommend to my friends and easy beer to drink.

12oz can served in a lager glass.
Surprising dark body for style with a very good head and decent lacing.
As claimed, the flavor is "malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice". Plenty of caramel malts and very faint spicing that becomes a bit more obvious in the aftertaste.

Old rating. Over spiced for a summer beer i thought. Big malts, lots of cinnamon and spice. Some vanilla and citrus, less drinkable than I'd want.

Old rating. Bottle from old town. Aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest with a slight hint of malts. Taste is more of the same with a spicey finish. Not bad.

Pours a copper colour without much head and no lacing. The overpowering flavour is vanilla then citrus, almost like a ceamsicle. There is also caramel and light spices. Very creamy but not too sweet. Nice

a clear amber-gold thin white head lasts for quite awhile. Taste is some bread and a touch of caramel, with some fruit as well.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Poured from a can into a tumbler on 05.14.14.A: See through red/orange. 2 finger head with an aggressive pour.S: Strong toffee. Also has peanut brittle, coconut.T: Peanut brittle, toffee are dominant. Coconut is subtle.M: Creamy. Perfect carbonation.O: This was my first cream ale and I have yet to find one that rivals it. It was complex with great flavors from front to back. It was a great dessert. EDIT FOR REREVIEW: 05.15.15. No peanut brittle, toffee, or coconut now. It only smells and tastes like Kix cereal. Itís drinkable, but average.

Not great. Aroma is sort of confusing with notes of malt with hints of banana and spice. It just not a complimentary medley of aromas. Taste is strangely fruit, veggie, spice (not really sure) but then itís punctuated by a heavy brand flake cereal taste thatís okay. Finish is light with a lingering brand flake flavor that sort of odd...
