Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy copper with a fizzy/creamy beige head. Aroma is quite nutty. Med body more or less. Flavor is hazelnut with chocolate notes. It’s an ok brew. Beats the main macro stuff. Finishes nearly dry and somewhat bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Sparkling clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. Toasty, nutty, caramely aroma with plenty of vanilla. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Perfectly balanced, thin and refreshing. Lots more vanilla in the flavor. More like a spiced cream ale than a nut brown ale… a la Anderson Valley Cerveza Crema. Finishes crisp with a pleasant, lasting, suggestion of vanilla. I’m a vanilla guy. Underrated, I think. Kudos to Kevin Berry for providing this refreshing bottle of beer!
