Pours slightly hazy, lemon-gold with a tall frothy/lumpy head. Scent is faint....apple...no vanilla to speak of...sweet grain. Taste is slightly sour grainy malt....light. ...maybe a touch of vanilla as it warms (though, not much) It’s ok, but not at all what the name/description leads you to believe. Aftertaste is a bit unpleasant.

Neutral aroma, no real hints of vanilla. Golden hay color. Upon taste you get a hint of vanilla in your nose. Other than that, this beer has mote of an grainy flavor, with a distinct aftertaste.

No real aroma. Appearance is average. Taste is average like any run of the mill ale but with a slight hint of vanilla. Nothing special and very one-note but overall okay and enjoyable.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours a yellow with a white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is bready while the taste is cake-like. The mouthfeel is medium-light and effervescent. It was an enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small, white head. The aroma is weak piney hops, caramel, and hay. The flavor is faintly bitter, and a little sweet. The palate is light to medium, sticky, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a little heavy for a cream ale, with a forward hop profile, relatively. It is neither refreshing nor strong, and I wouldn’t have noticed the vanilla except for the bottle label. The flavor is unpleasant, and gets worse in the aftertaste. To quote Joe: "I need to drink some milk now."

Tastes a little bit like a bland cream soda. The vanilla comes through and it is definitely a creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but was hoping for more.

DiarmaidBHK (3581) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at thirsty monk. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Lots of an articificial vanilla on the nose. The vanilla is a lot more subtle on the tongue but the you get this malty, biscuity thing. The finish is way too astringent. It practically strips the acid from your tongue. Not a well balanced beer.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Clear light hay color with no head. Nose is strongly bready, light honey, surprisingly very light vanilla initially in the nose. I sorta thought it might be a sweet vanilla bomb in the nose so im thankful for their apparent restraint. Flavor showcases the vanilla more, again very bready, light bitterness. Fine beer, and good if you like lighter ales that are on the sweeter side.

Vanilla doesn’t quite mask the the matly, spicy beerness beneath. Nice vanilla flavor but with an odd off aftertaste I couldn’t place. Might have to try another.
