COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This creamy vanilla ale is a wonderful combination of Vienna malt, American two row and natural vanilla bean. Try it out and see why it’s one of our more popular brews.

Draft at beer sellar - from notes. Just like a vanilla cream soda. Cool, but not what I was expecting.

4oz on tap at the brewpub. Labeled 3.8% on the board. Clear golden color. Good thin white head. Leaves great, thicker sheet of lace. Really nice vanilla bean flavor all throughout. Drinks like a Nilla Wafer. Moderate sweet, good light bitter balance. Nice dryness in the finish. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Sort of watery... very light... but this was surprisingly tasty and easy drinking. I could do a pint.

drowland (7059) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2015
3/19/15. 22oz bottle from a little store in Knoxville, TN. Golden pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Very weird aroma - smacked in the face with a bottle of vanilla extract followed by skunk (somehow??), corn, and diacetyl. Glad I’m sharing this bottle. Creamy flavor, vanilla, corny, husky bitterness, diacetyl. Meh.

[Tap] Dirty golden pour with a fizzy white head on top. Aroma is of cream soda and vanilla beans. Not much besides that. Flavor is also centered on vanilla. Sweet light malts and creamy vanilla ice cream notes as well. Not very beer-like, but more creamy and slightly thicker than expected.

It finishes a little sour. If they could fix that, it’d be perfect! That said, I crave this beer like crazy! It’s the closest replacement for Bohannon’s Vanilla Cream Ale.

Draft at the source. Hazy golden color. Aroma of light vanilla. Taste is pure sasparilla soda. Decent.

It tastes a little like a banana popsicle. Sweet with a little bit of malt. I like it a lot more than I expected to.

nearbeer (4236) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Pint on tap. Lightly foggy golden with a creamy disc of foam. Nose is vanilla and caramel. Taste is the same with a bit of toasted nut and dry grass on the finish. Light-medium body is to the sweet side, but not overly so. Medium carbonation is smooth. Surprisingly good.

Tap. Every thing about this beer screams "cream soda". Color is a dark gold. Aroma and taste is a strong vanilla.
