3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a light yellow with an off white head. Not much aroma, almost like a lager with a bit of vanilla. Smooth taste with light mouth feel, hints of cream and vanilla. Slight initial sweetness but finishes a little dryer. A solid, to style cream ale with a bit of vanilla. Nothing setting it apart, but a nice warm weather, sessionable cream ale.

Great summer beer. Tastes like a blonde ale with a nice touch of vanilla flavor on the end. Light body and good taste

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Sybarite Pig. American pint glass. Yellow clear pour with thick white head. Aroma is mostly a vanilla cake with vanilla icing. Slightly white bread as well. Taste is similar. Very smooth mouth with vanilla on front and finish. I actually liked it as a desert post steak dinner.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz Bottle. My first South Carolina tick, finally! Aroma bubbles up with a good bit of vanilla and then some DMS. On the palate this tastes like liquid corn flakes and other sugary processed corn-based breakfast cereals laden with vanilla. The breadth of this beer ends about there. The vanilla quality is okay and is not overbearing, it’s just that the emergent quality of cereal is not entirely enjoyable for me.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear yellowish gold, minimal head, some splotchy lacing. Very little aroma - and definitely no vanilla. A little like dishwater. Taste is a bit soapy, yeasty, and not much vanilla to speak of. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, this wasn’t what I was expecting - not really creamy or vanilla - actually more like a lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like lager hops and rye. Has color of lite beer but head persists. Interesting flavor of vanilla, rye, hay with sweet vanilla aftertaste. Grass notes as well. Dry and crisp. A hint of pepper. Maybe I’m missing something, but I like this stuff. Good summer choice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle poured clear light golden with what looks like a high amount of carbonation. Large, sudsy white head is durable. Ho-hum aroma and flavor is too much like a macro lager...but with vanilla. High but seemingly appropriate carbonation; light body.
O: refreshing but timid.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewer’s Festival 2013... Clear, straw-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head that sticks around for a good while. I’m getting no aroma from this brew at all – none – zero – zip – zilch. At least it’s inoffensive. Light-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation. Tastes like seltzer water with a gentle splash of vanilla and the faintest sweetness. Short, crisp, mildly sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thin bodied, light colored ale. Mouth feel is slightly creamy. Overall a yeasty, balanced ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bright medium gold colored brew with a thin off white head. Sugar cookies! This is mostly what I smell. There is also some hay. This tastes a lot more dry than I expected. There is also lots of wood and some hints of the sugar cookie character, but it is very light and in the finish. A little bit herbal, this one is decent. The vanilla is barely detected. Not one of Thomas Creek’s best efforts.
