Bottle and gets a perfect score from me. It taste like what you would expect. A very nice cream ale with a vanilla finish. It is very refreshing and is only brewed in the spring and summer months. Wish they could put it in cans as well and make it year around. One of my favorites. Love the Creek. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong vanilla flavors overwhelm the caramel malt. The finish is light and thin without a strong hops profile.

chucklemation (533) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Light golden color. The aroma is a combination vanilla and others that give it a strange, skunky sweet smell. There is a very light hint of vanilla and some light bitterness, but overall very little flavor.

ben4321 (4062) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/9/13

Aroma: The nose is light and fruity, some malty notes, and some vanilla
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a clean froth of bright white head
Flavor: The taste is sweet and a little fruity, with some additional sweetness from the vanilla
Palate: The body is light, it has a soft, creamy feel, and a fairly short finish
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was only okay. It comes off pretty sweet. It is a little bit on the overly sweet side. Not terrible, but not great.

PorterPounder (5648) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Albany, Ga - Warehouse package Store - 12 oz bottle. Light golden pour, long lasting snow white head that leaves a surprising amount of lacing. Aroma has some fresh lake water accents, a touch of vanilla, a hint of metal. Flavor has some light vanilla notes, a touch of toffee sweetness, some hints of yeast. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Thought this may be a cloying mess, pleasantly surprised.
