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

Bottle shared by Ken at Capitol Beer. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma is pretty much vanilla. Med body. Flavor is lightly sweet cream soda. Very good cream ale. Quite clean.

This is quite delicious. It tastes pretty much like Cream Soda in beer form. There’s a little bit of an off quality, slightly metallic, but otherwise this is nearly perfect for what I want from the style. Really really good.

Pours a golden pale color with a thick white head. Aromas of honey, fresh grains and vanilla bean. Flavors are similar to the nose with more earthiness and light touch of hops. Definitely a great session beer!

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Costco in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $4.79 Purchased: Aug. 27, 2014 Consumed: Aug. 29, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey, golden, straw, semi-clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan head that withered away fairly quickly. A good deal of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average wet watery lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.53) Smelled honey, vanilla, cream, sweet sugary corn, caramel, light grape and some rye malts. (Smell - 3.75) Taste was much, much better. Got vanilla cream, caramel, honey, vanilla extract, grass, Cream Soda and amber malts. Reminded me of a very good American Adjunct Lager. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, sweet finish. Something slightly off late on the tongue, but still a nice feel. (Feel - 3.94) A very good cream ale. I don’t know how many I’ve rated so far, but this one went down easy. Close to an AAL in my opinion, but not quite. Sweet, sugary, vanilla goodness. (Overall - 3.90) 3.90 88 B+

BrewDad (5005) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2014
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.

skmikeg (973) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 31, 2014
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.

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
