(bottle - 12 oz) Very clear light gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very, very mild with the lightest hint of vanilla. Some malts though. Flavor begins with a very mild and balanced caramel malt and vanilla middle. Some smooth vanilla hint at the end that mixes with the dry malt and grassy notes.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours clear straw with a non-retentive fizzy head. I could stretch for vanilla extract in the nose if I had to. The flavors are very bland grains with a vanilla-hued essence just after the finish, which is a curt, lackluster, simpleton cut of carbonation. Thin texture and light-bodied, this was not a shining moment in my sampling experience.

emacgee (4009) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a translucent light yellow with a thin frothy white head. The nose is sweet, fake vanilla, grassy, bready. Flavor is sweet and grassy, fake vanilla. Cloying. Not too much fun.

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a small-sized, white head. Smell: Sweet-scented vanilla additive amongst light pilsner malt notes and some spicy-minded hop accents. Taste: Sweetish pale malts and lightly grainy pils come together with a taste of vanilla flavoring. Spicy hop character with a medium amount of bitterness. Small hint of citrus. Light bitterness and final taste of vanilla in the dry, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: An acceptable, generally easy-drinking beer, but, for me, the gimmick wears a bit thin halfway through the bottle.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Sampled at World Beer Festival in Raleigh NC - this beer poured a golden yellow - not a whole lot to the the aroma - maybe a hint of vanilla? Taste is the same - not much there. Easy to drink but don’t expect too much from this pretty mild beer.

Rustyham (1722) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2009
crisp, clean and smooth. so smooth in fact that I think they forgot to add flavor. I don’t taste vanilla or malt or anything other than a slight sugary grain. Not worth the time it took to drink.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2008
A really bad idea. Yellow fizzy thing with no head. Vanilla extract in the aroma. Sweet and bland with a cheap vanilla aftertaste. Like cream soda but bad.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Sample at the Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a clear yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of malt and vanilla. Flavor was weak, with a malty note. Body was not creamy like the beer might suggest.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Sampled at the 12th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Light yellow, slightly cloudy, even sweet light malt aroma. Creamy citrus body with a hint of vanilla.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2008
This beer has a creamy mouthfeel and a predominate taste of oranges. There is a good malt background and just a hint of a vanilla flavor.
