3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy brown color. Kind of looks like apple cider. Thin head that disappears quickly. Scent is of mild vanilla. Taste consists of strong vanilla and little else. A little nutty. Lasting vanilla finish. Decent beer but it does taste like the vanilla is used to cover up the taste of cheap beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Thanks, I guess, to Benjiehorn (Ben) for passing along this distributor sample. Please don’t 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 don’t 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 don’t see this distributed in Illinois anytime soon.

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

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ Dan’s 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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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 won’t revisit.

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.
