Yes marshmallow cream. If you like that type. A little thick for a cream ale. But not too bad. Couldnít drink the whole 22, just because its not my style. But good beer if this us your cup of brew.

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 thereís 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.

Bacterial (1829) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2015
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 donít necessarily want. First few sips it tasted very artificial. Not my thing.

thegreenrooster (3371) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 19, 2015
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 thatís all there is and its kinda artificial at that.

Broncowaldon (72) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
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.

BeerandBlues2 (10371) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2014
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.

RobertDale (3854) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 4, 2014
12 ounce can. Pours a light clear gold with a nice white head. Aroma of vanilla. Taste is vanilla, citrus, and malt. Does taste like a cream soda. Would be nice to drink one every so often.
