2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Amber, slightly hazy with a small white head. Medium body. Some sweet malt and light touch of zesty fruit. Vanilla doesnít stand out by itself but does give that essence of cream soda. Maybe even a bit minty, before an orange peel bitter finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of malt, wheat, cream, artificial vanilla, sweetener, faint hops. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Too artificial, too much like cream soda, not for me.

Clear gold with a nice dense head. Aroma light and herbal. Taste grainy with, for some reason, a very strong milk chocolate note.. not sure why, maybe itís just the way I perceived the vanilla. Pretty good, at any rate

This one took me by surprise and I had to look it up to make sure I got the right beer. I was expecting a standard cream ale by what I got was a full flavored, amber, spiced up brew. Vanilla dominates, sweet malt, spice. Medium body. Finish has a hint of that vanilla and spice. Half a pint was enjoyable but the full pint was a bit much.

Keg at The Font, Chorlton. Hazy orange with a short white head. I like the aroma. The vanilla comes through nicely, making it seem like a cream soda. Taste is maybe a step down but about right for this style. Sweetish and a bit minerally. Decent enough.

can - 1st beer from ME makes me very curious about the others, as this is a style I rarely really like. This, though, was one of the best Iíve had. Creamy vanilla nose and flavor without being artificaial, and a smooth body with some cracker flavor and pale malt. Probably THE most complex Iíve ever had in style, and one of the best.
