Smells like sweet cream soda. Pours murky copper with a minimal white head. Tastes like a cream soda mixed with beer, I think I would like it more if it was less beer flavored and more cream soda flavored.

San Diego Summer Trip 2014 - Golden in color, clear with a thick white head. Creamy in flavor with a good malt mix. Easy hops backing this was nice and tasty.

Pours a medium orange with a half finger white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, citrus, wheat, and marshmallows. Taste is vanilla, wheat, marshmallow, citrus, light bitterness, and biscuit malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a bittersweet, medium finish. Overall, a very interesting beer that is nice for a rather mediocre style.

This is a very good cream ale very light and easy tasting with the vanilla after tones and was very good on the pallet.

utterlyrandom (3) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2014 does not count
The aroma has strong notes of vanilla that make it smell just like Cream Soda! since its a light body beer its the vanilla is the main flavor which will not make this beer everyone’s favorite but it is definitely one of mine

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 A light, effervescent summer brew with fleeting notes of vanilla and oats. A much better, creamier ale than similar styles. A sweet, dessert nose and a silky body give this Vista offering some gusto.

Draught at Mother Earth Tasting Room in Vista. Pale golden beer with a small white head. Malty toffee aroma, cream, butter, caramel, some biscuits. Malty caramel flavor, vanilla, cream and biscuits. Too sweet.

When you buy a cream ale, I suppose you should expect a cream ale. The cashier at Costco seemed to think this bottle was generating a great deal of local controversy and agitated mumbling, so I thought I’d give it a try and see how the beer version differed from the canned, sugary and carbonated version I essentially grew up on. And minus a little sugar? I can’t say there’s much of a difference. Cream ale, it turns out, tastes a great deal like cream ale. It has that distinctive sweeter element, marshmallow on the nose, a moderate to lope carbonation, and a taste that is more than nostalgic - it’s almost identical to root beer’s younger and slightly less social little brother. Like some fruit ales, it’s hard to think of this as a true beer, though I am glad to have tried it. However, the sooner this circulates out of Costco (and the sooner it no longer raises controversy around Costco’s hallowed halls) the better.

Not horrible, but waaay too much vanilla in this for me. First loser from an otherwise excellent brewery.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Bomber, had at brewery initially and rated low, but had in bomber and really good. Lots of vanilla all around. Orange pour, white head, nose is vanilla, taste is vanilla, i’m liking it.
