This beer is a clear pale straw-gold color with a medium fluffy white head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, wheat and grain. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet vanilla, biscuit malt and wheat. Slight hops here and there as well. The finish is malty with a vanilla aftertaste. Decent overall.

The aroma is average. Malt is steel reserve. There is no hops. No noticeable yeast. But you have to be a real vanilla lover to appreciate this beer. I stick to vanilla for ice cream. It has a smooth finish nonetheless that is a good break from harder& edgier beers.

Can. Gold with a loose white head. Aroma of popcorn, cheap vanilla ice cream. Sweet, taste is as suggested by the smell, but there’s a little bread too and a little lick of lemon, iron and pepper in the slightly bitter finish. Not my sort of thing at all.

This is a really nice easy drinking cream ale. Nice flavor, touch of caramel and some floral hop touches. Really smooth beer.

On tap at source, good beer but but not great nothing much to it other than grain water. No bad stuff going on but nothing else, expensive for what it is but not rated on cost.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber picked up for ~ $4 at Costco. Clear amber pour with a nice white head. Just a hint of white lacing. Nose has a hint of vanilla and some bread / cracker notes. Taste is pretty nice, but I get a lot of vanilla that I don’t necessarily want. First few sips it tasted very artificial. Not my thing.

Pour is a clear dark golden with a large white head. Aroma is a decent amount of vanilla but not much else. Flavor is again a nice vanilla but nothing else shows up. My experience with cream ales is that there is nothing exciting about them so the addition of vanilla is great but that’s all there is and its kinda artificial at that.

Expensive grain tea..wet grain flavor real lean tons of rocky head and fizz way better than a coors. But not worth price. Drink this one real cold if you are forced to drink. Or just bite bullet and get their Kismet.

Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a large, rocky white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is soft and sweet vanilla, biscuit and Pils malt. Flavor is crisp malt, light vanilla, light spicy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
