2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden color with a diminished white head. Heavy caramel and light cream scents. Lighter in many respects than expected. Pale malt and sweet cream flavors. Light vanilla linger. Not the full lightly bourbon vanilla I expected more a whipped cream kind of brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin ring. Aroma of some light bready malt, a touch of honey, some citrus zest and a distinct scent of vanilla ice cream. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of a light bready malt a touch of vanilla and something reminded me of the taste of a chewed #2 pencil back in high school. Finish is semi-sweet with a slight bitter citrus and vanilla aftertaste. Very interesting cream ale.
