COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our most popular beers ever, this vanilla cream ale has a malty backbone thanks to some flaked corn and honey malt. Just a hint of vanilla adds depth to the flavor and makes this beer a medium bodied cult classic. It’s sure to woo the ladies, but also flavorful enough to satisfy the dudes. You’ll swear you were drinking a cream soda...but tricks are for kids.

Not as creamy as I’d hoped but very pleasant. Smells lovely. Nice and light on the palate. As close to cream soda as you’re likely to get in a beer. Harry Potter fans would approve.

LazyPyro (479) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2016
355ml can from Beers of Europe. Fairly clear pale golden colour with a small white head, slightly unfiltered appearance. Sweet aroma of delicious vanilla ice cream, malt. Taste is sweet, creamy, it really is almost like a cream soda as they describe it - like drinking melted vanilla ice cream with alcohol in it, and being beer-like... somehow it just works really well. Really smooth mouthfeel too. I love it.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Can from the Guildford Arms. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - like vanilla ice cream or buttermilk even. Taste - more of the same. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - I’d written off this whole style but this is the first one I’ve enjoyed.

Tommygun453 (40) - California, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours a light golden color with a medium creamy head. Aroma is malty with a hint of vanilla. Feels a bit watery and creamy. Flavor is slightly bitter with a nice aftertaste of vanilla cream. Pretty good beer. One of my favorites!

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Hazy deep golden with small white head. Aroma is cream, medium creamy body, lower carbonation, and thin good small-bubble lacing. Taste is cream and Pilsner malt. Quite good really.

wlajwl (5546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2016
Aroma is pale malts/grains and mild sweetness. The flavor is vanilla/almost vanilla ice cream, pale malts, fruit and a mix of tart and slight sweetness in the finish.

IndianaRed (3669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Out of a can. Slightly hazy golden. Thick dense white head. Light pale malt aromas and flavors. Significant vanilla spice and rather firm body. A little noble hop for balance.
