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.

Sathorael (158) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours a light amber with medium tan head. Little retention or lacing. Aromas of banana, spice, and a little Belgian yeast? Very reminiscent of a subdued witbier/blonde. Taste is much of the same with a mild vanilla right before the finish. Finish is sweet with a lingering vanilla oiliness.

Very strong vanilla scent, but not strong vanilla taste. Average carbonation. Very clear gold color. Not something that will give u a buzz. Good for light drinkers.

beerbaaron (1844) - Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Clear light gold. White head. Honey. Grain/straw. Artificial vanilla. Mild grassy bitterness. I don’t get the cream soda here. Not bad I guess, but this isn’t really for me.

MarinEvelyn (739) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2016
A sweet vanilla, almost something citrusy, cream soda type aroma and taste. Aroma a little less sweet than taste. Decent dessert type beer.

jamestulloch (2700) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Can (5.2% ABV) from Bottle Baron. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of vanilla ice-cream and custard. Flavour of cream soda, orange Angel Delight and biscuit. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Sweet and easy to drink.

5.8%ABV. Cream Ale. Tapped out a hazy golden amber. 10ºSRM. Nose has some sweet creamy vanilla aromas, like when infusing a cream with vanilla pods in the preparation of a vanilla ice cream. Candy sweet aroma. Like opening a can of sweet hard candy. There is also the aroma of kettle corn. Mouthfeel is sudsy and smooth. There is a good carbonation allowing palate of cream corn, sweet malt and some floral-ness bloom. Orchids or carnations maybe. A hit of something creamy smoky like burnt milk or scorched Spanish cream or creme brulee. No hops. Slight beery finish. Pretty clean.

dwyerpg (5087) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 5, 2016
A fairly strong vanilla in the aroma, this has a nice full head. This certainly is a cream ale, one of the creamiest I’ve had in a long time. That said I’m just not much of a vanilla guy

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
On tap @ Sheraton Quinn’s Alehouse. Medium golden hue, clear, with a thin white head. Aroma is vanilla cookie with light coffee undertones. Sweet vanilla biscuit through and through. Low bitterness. Clean. Well, if cream ale can have an ambassador, then maybe this serves.

Very smooth vanilla-ey flavor beer. Do yourself a favor and find it on nitro as it compliments it perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade. Cloudy golden pour with minimal head. As it warmed there’s more Vanilla in the aroma. Pretty smooth and drinkable. Good cream ale.
