COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Snowbunny Ale exhibits pleasant notes of caramel with a heady vanilla nose which play against a creamy background. Enjoy it on its own or after a meal for the perfect dessert."

From the brewery, "Itís brewed with 2 Row and a large portion of wheat, paired with a few additional specialty grains. Lactose is added during the boil to help give it a creamy character and the beer is aged on Tahitian vanilla beans in secondary."

BeerInHeaven (135) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
pours a deep copper with smallish head. Aroma is a weak chocolate or caramel. Taste is slightly sweet, hints of chocolate and biscuit. Brief finish, forgettable. Not a bad beer, but I probably wonít revisit.

Lemke10 (793) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a medium brown color with a fast diminishing head. Some scents of roasted malts are evident giving it an almost smoked type of scent. Drinks slightly lighter than a milk stout. You can definitely tell this is a cream ale. The flavor could be a little more bold and the texture could be a little thicker. Definitely something different though.

Patrickctenchi (3658) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours clear copper with tall, off-white head. Scent is caramel, sour grain malt. Taste is strong vanilla, cream soda... Clingy-sweet and sticky. Not too good, way too sweet....

Super super vanilla. Tasted more like root beer than beer. Tough to finish.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Thanks, I guess, to Benjiehorn (Ben) for passing along this distributor sample. Please donít pick them up. A: Pours a chilled amber with a one finger, off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin collar and leaves no lace down the glass. S: Vanilla sweetness, creamy sugar and pale malts with some mild hops. T: More pale malts with a creamy vanilla ice cream finish. There is a buttery like toffee in there giving it an overall cream soda vibe. Not my cup of tea. M: Medium bodied with barely any carbonation. Makes it a little tough to get down, some how it has a drying quality. I really donít know. O: If you like chalky cream soda, this is your go-to beer. The lack of feel in the mouth really hurt it as well. I hope I donít see this distributed in Illinois anytime soon. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-01-2012

great caramel vanilla taste, very creamy character to it, very pleasant beer, a little sweet but not over powering

Definitely getting marshmallow on the aroma. Nose at first is almost like cream soda, but quickly becomes boosey and bitter. The transition is a bit shocking and not very pleasant. If thy could get the same nose and aroma and make the beer much, much sweeter, it might work.

adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle @ Danís house, courtesy of pepsiedcan. Thanks man! Clear, burnt orange appearance with little head. Vanilla bean, creamy, light caramel aroma. Tangy, somewhat sour orange, vanilla cream-sickle, fruity, milk sugary flavor. Yuck.

BVery (6266) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a amber-gold color with no head at all. Nose is vanilla, slight caramel, and a sugar sweetness that reminds me of the frosting at Cinnabon. Thinner palate and quite flat on the carbonation. Taste is cream soda like.

Too sweet for me. The vanilla made the beer taste creamy, much like a soda with vanilla flavoring. I would only drink 1 bottle on special occasions.
