2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
